Shangri-La Chinese Acrobats

Tickets will be available starting on Nov. 1 at Leisure Travel Services building 419 in the PX Furniture Mall complex. Prices are $10 (ages 6 and older), $5 (ages 3-5) and free (ages 2 and under).
The show is being sponsored by the Directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation in partnership with the Hinesville Arts Council.
This is the 31st North American Tour by the Shangri-La Chinese Acrobats.
Chinese acrobatics are more than just a series of stunts and offer more than a glimpse into the traditions of the Orient. The show, for all ages, consists of sensational Chinese acrobatics, balancing feats, martial arts displays, and more.
The Shangri-La Chinese Acrobats have performed throughout South America, Central America, Southeast Asia, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Monte Carlo, Canada, New Zealand, Israel, Canada, and the United States. The troupe also has appeared on many television specials.
