“Christmas In Space”

From December 19 to 31, 2023, “Christmas In Space!,” A Stellar Holiday Cirque can be seen in the GSR’s Grand Theatre.  This show uses projection mapping and interactive lasers that gives new meaning to “holiday lights.”

This show features a cast of cirque performers, acrobats and daredevils that will have you on the edge of your seat.  You’ll see The Cyclone, an incredible daredevil that will be suspended on a Harley Davidson motorcycle 45 feet in the air.  And if that’s not enough, the rider will be towing two female acrobats performing aerials!

You’ll also see Lady Light Lasergirl, an award winning laser performer who’s been on the Discovery Channel’s Outrageous Acts of Science and on Game of Talents.  She will dazzle you with her lasers.

At the heart of the story is an inquisitive Alien and his extraterrestrial friends.  They’ll go on a journey to discover the true meaning of Christmas and the holiday season.

I’ve seen a single ticket for this show going for as much as $63 for each ticket.  Purchase your ticket here and you can save $33 to $43 on each ticket.  The savings will be automatic and you won’t need to use a discount code or promo code.
