Foxwoods Resort Casino® Announces Family-Friendly Summer 2016 Entertainment Series

MASHANTUCKET, Conn.--()--Foxwoods Resort Casino®, the Northeast’s premier resort destination, is turning up the heat this summer with a trio of dazzling, family-friendly entertainment acts featuring the return of Criss Angel’s The SUPERNATURALISTS™, as well as breathtaking, genre-defying shows Cirque Éloize Saloon and Nik Wallenda’s Zirkus. Each of the three acts provide a unique and thrilling entertainment experience that is perfect for a fun family outing.

“We pride ourselves on providing our guests and the region world-class family-friendly entertainment and offerings,” said Monique Sebastian, Vice President of Entertainment & Marketing at Foxwoods Resort Casino. “Together these shows create a powerhouse trio this summer – each with their own flair and thrill – and will sure to leave adults and children of all ages in awe.”

From June 29 through July 4, internationally renowned wire walker Nik Wallenda launches the debut of Zirkus, his jaw-dropping variety show exclusively created for Foxwoods. The gravity-defying spectacle will have families on the edge of their seats as Nik and his international troupe of circus performers brave the high wire for a night of suspense and amazement. Foxwoods is one of only two U.S. locations hosting Zirkus, whose finale features the death-defying, seven-person high wire pyramid which was created and perfected by the Wallenda family in the 1940s.

The fun continues at the Fox Theater this August with the world premiere of Cirque Éloize Saloon, the latest offering from the innovative contemporary circus troupe, which features an intoxicating mix of theatre, music, acrobatics and emotion. Saloon tells the story of a Wild Wild West piano tuner’s astonishing journey through a world filled with gold diggers, rail workers, chorus girls and cowboys. Playing for a multi-week residency from August 12 through 21, the show is sure to delight audiences of all ages with a must-see fusion of comedy, dance and music. Saloon’s 7 p.m. show on August 21 will be a special benefit performance to support the Kevin Ollie Charity Classic, taking place August 21-22 at Foxwoods’ award-winning Lake of Isle golf course.

To cap off the summer, The SUPERNATURALISTS - Criss Angel’s team of mind-blowing illusionists - are back by popular demand after a pair of successful 2015 residencies at Foxwoods, including the show’s international debut at the Fox Theater last summer. The SUPERNATURALISTS continue to push the limits of what is possible with revolutionary illusions, magic acts and escapes. The world-class team features “The Illusionist” Landon Swank, “The Femme Fatale of Legerdemain” Krystyn, “The Mentalist” Banachek, “The Escape Artist” Spencer Horsman, “The Manipulator” Stefan Vanel, “The Street Magician” Adrian Vega, “The Dog Conjuror” Johnny Dominguez, and the “Jokers” Maestro and Fifi. Criss and company invite fans to bring the whole family for a night of unprecedented wonder when they return to the Foxwoods stage August 24 through 28.
