What is The Great Big Boo!

The Great Big Boo! is a family-friendly, non-scary, spectacular Halloween extravaganza that features an exciting live show with music and dancing, as well as a fun trick-or-treating event with the stars of the show.

Is The Great Big Boo! a live show or a movie?

It’s both! The Great Big Boo! is a unique, multimedia show that combines live musical theatre with the silver screen. Our larger-than-life characters will perform both on-screen and live in theatre, bringing a one-of-a-kind, interactive experience to you and your family!

Is The Great Big Boo! going to scare my kids?

The Great Big Boo! has been created especially for children aged 2 to 12. The show doesn’t aim to scare audiences, but rather to make them laugh and dance.

Vinnie the Vampire isn’t a scary one – he’s afraid of the dark himself! Wendella the Witch is the only slightly spooky character, as she threatens to cast a spell on Halloween that would end all trick-or-treating; however, she finds redemption by the end of the show and gains the courage to dance in front of the audience.

Is this the same stage show as previous The Great Big Boo! events?

The story and the characters are the same – but the show is re-imagined using digital technology! Like Annie or the Nutcracker, The Great Big Boo! is a theatrical musical, filled with songs and dance numbers that you will come to recognize. This is a show that makes for a fun and special family Halloween tradition!

Should we wear costumes to the show?

Costumes are highly recommended to make the experience even better for the children, but they are not required. In the past, most of our audiences – including parents – have come dressed in outrageous outfits.
