There was something magical about being transformed to a mystical location with "fantastical creatures" in the show Varekai now playing at the Sprint Center. This amazing show will provide you with drama, comedy and an endearing love story.

Deep within a forest, at the summit of a volcano, exists an extraordinary world - a world where something else is possible. A world called Varekai that is coming to Sprint Center May 14-18.

From the sky falls a solitary young man, and the story of Varekaibegins. Parachuted into the shadows of a magical forest, a kaleidoscopic world populated by fantastical creatures, this young man sets off on an adventure both absurd and extraordinary. On this day at the edge of time, in this place of all possibilities, begins an inspired incantation to life rediscovered.

The word Varekai means "wherever" in the Romany language of the gypsies the universal wanderers. This production pays tribute to the nomadic soul, to the spirit and art of the circus tradition, and to the infinite passion of those whose quest takes them along the path that leads to Varekai.

The music was amazing made up of lovely voices and talented musicians. The performers mastered their skills with amazing athleticism and grace. Between the sets, costumes, music and scenery the audience truly was transformed to the summit of the volcano and involved in these creatures lives.

Varekai is a family friendly show. There are 6 more performances remaining at the Sprint Center so visit their website or the box office to purchase tickets. You can read a review of the show here.
