This Halloween, there’s nothing to be scared of…
The Great Big Boo! is a musical extravaganza for the entire family.
Follow Justin & Zoë as they sing and dance their way through a maze of wacky adventures to save Halloween from Wendella the Witch, who has cast a spell on trick-or-treating. Joining them on their journey are their larger-than-life friends from Boo Alley:
Cranium the Mad Scientist
Frankie the Lounge Singer
Vinnie the Vampire
Priscilla the Princess
Wolfgang the Werewolf
Wendella the Witch
Sammy Jo Scarecrow
Complete with high-energy dance, special effects, a dynamic original score, and a trick-or-treat adventure, The Great Big Boo! celebrates the magic and fun that is Halloween.
Designed for families with young children, kids are encouraged to attend the show in their favourite costume. Following the 50-minute musical stage show, the audience is invited to meet the cast in a unique indoor trick-or-treat adventure.
Get ready to sing, dance and be entertained as we all Do the Boo!
We recently saw The Great Big Boo and it was fun. There are not a lot of family Halloween shows out there and The Great Big Boo advertises itself as a family show. There were definitely a lot of families at the show.
We enjoyed the show and we had our 10 year old and 5 year old along with us. Our 10 year old did not find the show scary at all. My 5 year old did not care for Wendella the Witch. She found Wendella a little on the scary side.
The seating at the show was general seating at the Vancouver show and you either want to be in the front or the very back row. The floor seating would leave the little ones having a hard time to see over the adults. We opted to sit in the top row of the few bleacher seats they had, it made for perfect viewing. I think we had the best seats in the house even though we were in the back row.
On the way into the show, they provided cute little trick or treat bags for the youngsters. After the show, the young fans got a chance to meet some of the cast and trick or treat with them. The trick or treating was a nice touch for the ending of the show. It also represented a great chance for a photo opportunity for those little ones willing to pose with the characters. My youngest was not willing to approach the characters that closely so we did not get any photos with them. My 10 year old thought that the characters were really cool to see because of their elaborate costumes, but she felt too old to be trick or treating with them.
Overall, the show is in my opinion affordable and really fun. With most Halloween events and shows made for the purpose of scaring the spectators, it is nice to have a show that the family can attend together. If you love Halloween and get a chance to see the show, I would recommend trying it out. The audience at the show we went to seemed to be having a great time.
Remember to also check out another amazing production called The Magic of Santa that will be coming soon to the Vancouver area. Follow The Magic Santa on Facebook to keep in the know.
