LAS VEGAS, May 19 (UPI) -- Canada's Cirque du Soleil company says it is offering specially priced tickets throughout the summer to celebrate its 25th anniversary.

Guests can also enter a sweepstakes for a chance to visit Las Vegas and see all seven Cirque du Soleil shows "like a celebrity VIP," the group said in a news release Tuesday.

"Cirque du Soleil is commemorating its 25th anniversary in 2009 with the theme 'the dream continues,'" it said. "Since June 16, 1984, this young Quebec company has never stopped dreaming. For Cirque, 2009 marks 25 years of dreaming, daring, and pushing the limits. There has never been a better time to dream than this summer."

From May 11 through Oct. 31 a limited number of specially priced tickets will be available for select Cirque du Soleil performances. Guests who purchase one ticket can bring a friend for $25.

One person will be randomly selected to receive the grand prize package for two, including airfare to Las Vegas, hotel accommodations and celebrity treatment at Cirque du Soleil's "Mystere," "O," "Zumanity the Sensual Side of Cirque du Soleil," "KA," "The Beatles LOVE," "Criss Angel Believe" and the newest production, which pays tribute to the music and life of Elvis Presley and which is to open later this year, the company said.
