DCU CENTER 50 Foster Street, Worcester, MA CIRQUE DU SOLEIL - QUIDAM December 14-18 - Young Zo6 is bored; her parents, distant and apathetic, ignore her. Her life has lost all mean- ing. Seeking to fill the void of her existence, she slides into an imagi- nary world -- the world of Quidam -- where she meets characters who encourage her to free her soul. Quidam: a nameless passerby, a solitary figure lingering on a street corner, a person rushing past and swallowed by the crowd. It could be anyone, anybody. Someone coming or going at the heart of our anonymous society. A member of the crowd, one of the silent majority. The one who cries out, sings and dreams within us all. This is the "quidam" whom this show allows to speak. This is the place that beckons -- a place for dreaming and genuine relations where all quidams, by proclaiming their individuality, can finally emerge from anonymity. Tickets available at the DCU Center Box Office, Ticketmaster locations, at 800-745- 3000 and online at ticketmaster.com. BOSTON SCAVENGER HUNT - See Boston with new eyes on a scav- enger hunt!
