The Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts is planning an exhilarating evening of nonstop action as it welcomes Cirque Zuma Zuma, a production of African Acrobats International, on Friday, Nov. 8, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets start at $17 each.
Zuma Zuma was a 2011 finalist on NBC’s award-winning talent competition, “America’s Got Talent.” At their initial audition, Zuma Zuma received a unanimous vote to move forward to the next round of competition. After their performance, judge Howie Mandel said, “There is so much energy. And it’s so edgy, and it looks so dangerous.”
At their quarterfinals performance, judge Pierce Morgan, who remained amazed throughout Zuma Zuma’s journey on “America’s Got Talent” that they never used mats during their dangerous tricks and stunts said, “They just do what they do and they do it with such exuberance.”
