ARLINGTON, Texas, June 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Saturday, June 16, 2007, Six Flags Over Texas, the number one family entertainment venue in Texas, kicks off the entertainment event of the summer with the debut of its all-new stage extravaganza, Cirque Dreams Coobrila. With impressive feats of aerial acrobatic artistry and eye-catching bold costumes and staging, this exciting production promises to "WOW" guests of all ages with its spectacular display of lights, sound, imagery and jaw-dropping performances.
"Cirque Dreams Coobrila is like no other show we've ever done. These amazing performances will literally have audience members on the edge of their seats trying to anticipate the next move," said Steve Martindale, president of Six Flags Over Texas. "There are so many great elements in this production, so many jaw-dropping moments, that if a guest sees it only once, there's no way they've even come close to seeing it at all!"
Cirque Dreams Coobrila will come to life in Six Flags Over Texas' 10,000-seat Music Mill Amphitheatre. The Amphitheatre has been completely transformed and reconfigured with multiple stages and performance runways designed to connect the performers with the audience for an intimate and engaging experience. An elaborate stage structure complements the special effects, fanciful illuminations and amazing displays of aerial artistry.
The word "Coobrila" was created by combining three key descriptive elements of the show: the outdoor performances will be presented at night when temperatures are COOler, illumination effects throughout the park will make the environment BRIghter, and the park's operating hours will be LAter to maximize guest enjoyment. These elements also fuel the three principal characters of this new Cirque Dreams Production.
An international cast, including performers from North Texas, will showcase a variety of diverse talents, all highlighted by Cirque Productions' signature style of wildly bizarre and creative costumes, original music and unlimited imagination -- and all blended together to create the world of Cirque Dreams Coobrila, presented exclusively at Six Flags Over Texas!
The Coobrila adventure runs June 16 through August 19 and begins each night at 9:30 p.m. For more information go to Sixflags.com .
