This time of year you can find us huddled around our televisions watching Lifetime and classic Christmas movies. There is nothing quite like a holiday show to get you into the spirit of the season and Las Vegas invites you to put away your remote and experience some joy on the Strip with their own festive shows. From productions with a holiday makeover to all-new holiday shows here are five festive shows you must see this season:
The Holiday Show
As its name suggests, the Wynn’s first-ever seasonal production, The Holiday Show is the perfect way to get your seasonal dose of cheer this December. Full of holiday hits like “Santa Baby” and “This Christmas,” comedy and multi-genre dance numbers, The Holiday Show will certainly make your spirit bright. It brings cheer now through December 30.
A Very Terry Christmas
Around this time of year, ventriloquist Terry Fator sets aside his regular residency act for A Very Terry Christmas at the Mirage. The show follows the format of a ’70’s-era holiday special and includes Bing Crosby and David Bowie singing “Little Drummer Boy,” a few jokes about Trump and a new character to mix things up. A Very Terry Christmas performs now through December 25.
Tournament of Kings Holiday Show
Eat, drink and be merry at Tournament of Kings Holiday Show -’Twas the Knight at Excalibur. Now through December 27, the 900-seat arena is turned into a holiday wonderland. The show includes everything you love about the regular production, including the magical Merlin, but with some holiday cheer like falling snow!
Holiday Magic at The LINQ Promenade
The LINQ Promenade has been transformed into a winter wonderland for the holiday season. Each night, guests can enjoy a holiday show full of singers, dancers and show girls. The free live performances take place Monday - Wednesday from 6 p.m. - 9 p.m. and Thursday - Sunday from 6 p.m. - 9 p.m. at the top of the hour.
One of Vegas’ favorite holiday traditions returns to spread holiday cheer for all. The Nutcracker will certainly get you into the holiday mood when it retells the classic tale through a live orchestra and a cast of nearly 100 dancers. The Nutcracker in Reynolds Hall at The Smith Center is a must-see.
