If you are looking for something to do this winter, consider heading to the Orange County Great Park to check out the Cirque de Soleil show Totem. This great show has been running since November and will have its last showing on December 29. There are two shows on Sunday the 22nd at one and four thirty, on show on Christmas Eve at four thirty, one show on Thursday the 26th at eight and two shows on the 27th and 28th at four thirty and eight. The final shows will be Sunday the 29th at one and four. There are many different ticket packages to choose from still available including a great VIP package that allows for backstage access before the show and at intermission.
Totem takes you through the journey of the human race from the time spent living in the primordial pool until our present time. You watch the characters evolve on the stage before you through an acrobatic and highly visual style. While this show is not intended to be scientific in nature, it does go through both the science and legend of man and the issues that attach him to the other species of the world. Any Cirque fan needs to get to this show before it closes out and moves on simply for the beauty of the costumes and the level of entertainment that is perfect for family members of all ages. What a great way to spend a Southern California Christmas Eve!
