Golden Dragons set to appear at CCP

CROSSVILLE — The Golden Dragon Acrobats are recognized as the world's leading Chinese acrobatic troupe, and on Oct. 26 at 8 p.m., this remarkable company will bring their amazing talents to the Cumberland County Playhouse Mainstage.

Known for their commitment to the highest production values and attention to artistic details, world-renowned impresario Danny Chang and choreographer Angela Chang combine award-winning acrobatics, traditional dance, spectacular costumes, ancient and contemporary music and theatrical techniques to present a show of breathtaking skill and spellbinding beauty.

"Juggling everything from umbrellas to soccer balls — and with props as varied as ladders and giant spinning wheels — the performers show why they're world famous," wrote the New York Post. "Whether bending their bodies into seemingly impossible positions or balancing each other in feats of incredible strength ... the company delivers beautifully choreographed routines showcasing their amazing skills and physicality."

 Get ready to experience acrobats perched atop a 30-foot tower of chairs and see the performers bend like rubber and balance each other in human pyramids while riding moving bicycles and juggling strange objects with their hands and feet.

Currently running at the Playhouse: Big River plays on the Mainstage through Nov. 9, the biographical Ginger Rogers musical Backwards In High Heels (rated PG, sponsored by Uplands Village) through Nov. 2; the bluegrass musical comedy Golden Boy Of The Blue Ridge (rated PG) through Oct. 26; and the high energy musical Five Guys Named Moe (rated PG) through Oct. 27. Upcoming events: A Sanders Family Christmas (Rated G, sponsored by Stonehaus Winery) opens in the Adventure Theater on Nov. 1, Joseph & The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (rated G, sponsored by M. Stewart Galloway, MD, Cumberland Eye Center) opens on Nov. 16, and Mandy Barnett (Sponsored by Mitchell Drug Company) will kick off her Christmas Concert Tour at the Playhouse on Nov. 23 at 8 p.m.

Tickets and information are also available for the Cookeville Children’s Theater production of Annie, Southern Stars Symphonic Brass, and other events. All CCP productions are made possible through sponsor support, with additional support provided by the Tennessee Arts Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts.
