I have some super exciting news! I go to this event every year (see the fun I had last year!), but am now over the moon that it has something especially new this year!
This year Busch Gardens Christmas Town will feature an ice show starring world champion and two-time Olympic silver medalist Elvis Stojko! Developed by the same creative team that produced London Rocks™ and Scrooge No More!.™, ‘Twas That Night is based on the popular poem A Visit From St. Nicholas, published in 1823 by Clement Moore, and will be performed at Busch Gardens’ Royal Palace Theatre starting Nov. 27. Busch Gardens’ entertainment team will transform the theater’s stage into a glistening frozen pond, creating a nostalgic sense of wonderment during the retelling of this popular Christmas classic.
“Busch Gardens’ newest live show combines the grace of professional figure skating with cherished Christmas music, original holiday songs and magnificent visuals,” said Entertainment Director Bonnie Gilliland. “Elvis Stojko’s masterful skating techniques and his unbounded creativity are helping us produce an emotionally-charged show that is unlike anything else in our lineup.”
