The University of Montana and UM Productions will host the vibrant Imperial Acrobats of China in a production of “Chi of Shaolin: The Tale of the Dragon” on Friday, Oct. 26, in the George and Jane Dennison Theatre.
The performance tells the story of a thief left for dead after attempting to steal a prized Chinese relic, and the Shaolin monk who finds compassion for the thief and brings him back to the temple for healing. The audience will witness the thief’s quest for healing, his recovery and ultimate, timeless transformation.
The acrobatic troupe infuses the performance with Shaolin warrior skills and circus talent. Brilliant backdrops and costumes, dramatic original music, lighting, illusions and choreography combine to create a spectacular and dazzling experience for audiences of all ages.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show begins at 7:30 p.m. Tickets cost $35 for general admission and $25 for students. They are available at all GrizTix locations, including Worden’s Market, Southgate Mall, The Source at the University Center, MSO Hub and the Adams Center Box Office, as well as online at http://www.griztix.com or by calling 406-243-4051.
