Our Experience

This was a great show for our family.  It was mostly a cirque show with a little bit of Christmas thrown in.  You could definitely attend after Christmas Day and still enjoy.  The show kept all of my children ages 4, 6, and 8 entertained throughout it.  Each enjoyed the different acts and singing.

I love that the Grand Theatre has 2 large screens for the audience to watch as well.  With these screens, I don’t think you can get a bad seat!
