Headlining the Grand Ole Opry House this holiday season is critically-acclaimed holiday musical, Cirque Dreams Holidaze; a show their performers say you don’t want to miss.
“The biggest things viewers can expect is to be on the edge of their seats at all times,” performer Stephanie Benton, said. “We always say it’s good for kids from one to 92. That’s our big joke because you can bring the grandparents, you can bring the kids, and they’re in the holiday spirit together!”
In this year’s rendition of Cirque Dreams Holidaze, Benton plays an elf in the first half of the show and an angel, in the second half. In our one-on-one interview, Benton shows off her spunky, elf costume, but brags even more on the angel wings she gets to flaunt off in the second half of the show.
With more than 300 different handmade costumes and 20 different acts, Cirque Dreams Holidaze has been proclaimed by the New York Daily News as a “delicious confection of charm, sparkle and talent by the sleigh load.” The critique even said the show is “so full of energy, it could end our dependence on oil.”
Benton couldn’t agree more. “You’re never going to be bored,” she said. “There’s something here for everyone,” including one of her favorite songs, a jazzed-up version of “Deck the Halls.”
The broadway musical claims to be an “adventure wrapped into the ultimate holiday gift for the entire family,” highlighting winter holidays such as Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas and New Year’s in a 2-hour show, which includes acrobatics and several musical number.
The show will from now until Dec. 28. Ticket prices start at $24.99 and can be purchased online via the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center.
