AMALUNA by Cirque du Soleil, plays under the Big Top in Sacramento’s Sutter Health Park until March 1.
Listen: Star Kelsey Custard was born in Citrus Heights and then her family moved to Shingle Springs before she got into being a professional clown.
Written and directed by Tony Award-winning director Diane Paulus, Cirque du Soleil’s 33rd production is a celebration of love and a tribute to the work and voice of women, featuring a cast that comprises mostly women with an all-female band. The show’s title is a fusion of the words ama, which refers to “mother” in many languages, and luna, which means “moon,” a symbol of femininity that evokes both the mother-daughter relationship and the idea of goddess and protector of the planet.
The show runs through March 1 in Sacramento. Get tickets here:
