Mission Viejo, CA – Performing Arts at Saddleback College is thrilled to present The Shangri-La Chinese Acrobats on Sunday, November 18th at 2 p.m. in the McKinney Theatre.  Direct from the People’s Republic of China, this high-energy attraction will transport audiences back to a mystical land of “Shangri-La” where anything is possible and illusion becomes reality.  Under the direction of acrobatic legends, the Hai Family, the company flawlessly interprets the precision and grace of an art form honed by years of training and discipline. This multi-faceted and multi-cultural production features dazzling acrobatic displays, formidable feats of daring and balance, explosive Kung Fu, brilliant costumes and even a touch of Chinese comedy.  Along with several television appearances, the troupe was awarded the Performing Arts Award by the National Association for Campus Activities Today and the Reader’s Choice Award for Best Live Novelty Act.  High-wire feats and show-stopping ground acts will have audiences clamoring for more!  “A delight for all ages; a flurry of pure showmanship!” – The San Francisco Chronicle.
