WHAT: THE RADIO CITY CHRISTMAS SPECTACULAR starring THE ROCKETTES COMES TO OMAHA FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER
RUN DATES: Thursday, November 13, 2014 through Sunday, November 30, 2014
WHERE: Omaha’s Orpheum Theater, 409 S. 16th St.
INFO: The Radio City Christmas Spectacular, starring the Rockettes, will make its Omaha debut this year at the Orpheum Theater. Audiences will experience the magic of Christmas like never before. In this multi-faceted production, the Rockettes dance their way through an awe-inspiring journey that features a 50-foot LED screen and transports audiences to Times Square and Santa’s Workshop. The Rockettes will debut new numbers, such as “New York at Christmas,” featuring a life-size double-decker bus alongside fan-favorites including the high-energy tap number “The Twelve Days of Christmas.” The show boasts over 300 glamorous costumes including the Rockettes finale costume, “Let Christmas Shine,” which is adorned with 3,000 crystals each, as well as familiar favorites such as “Parade of the Wooden Soldiers,” which was designed by Vincente Minnelli and has been in the show since its inception in 1933. For more than 85 years, the Rockettes have been known for their unrivaled precision and athleticism – each show they perform more than 300 of their signature eye-high kicks. Performances are Nov. 13-30 at the Orpheum Theater, 409 S. 16th St., Omaha. Tickets start at $35 and are on sale now at TicketOmaha.com
Our Experience: I was fortunate enough to experience opening day of this show with my wife, daughter and mother in law. I had always wanted to see The Rockettes in person, but I never get out to New York, so I was very excited to see this fun holiday show. My daughter was even more excited at the chance to get all dolled up in a nice dress and do her hair for a proper show, especially a holiday one.
The show truly was a spectacular from start to finish, complete with song, dance, Santa and tons of holiday joy. The Rockettes are truly amazing in person, they're such a sight to behold. I can't imagine how much work goes into what they do. The show managed to cram in quite a few holiday greats, like the Nutcracker Suite, and brought all the bravado of a real broadway show to Omaha, NE. It was a wonderful experience we'll never forget. This is the kind of memory my daughter will hold onto and cherish. This is a fantastic way to celebrate the Christmas season with your loved ones.
