The Great Big Boo was a great big hit with my 4-year-old son. I was surprised and gratified by how much he enjoyed this Halloween theatrical musical show that we attended this weekend at the PNE Forum.
Seating was by general admission. We arrived 45 minutes early to find parking, pick up our tickets and got in line. You gotta love my husband for hustling down the aisle after the doors opened to get us front row seats. Sweet! My son started racing around and dancing to the pre-show music.
He settled right down when Wolfgang the Werewolf took command of the stage at the beginning of the production
During The Great Big Boo, we met Justin and Zoe, and their new friends Vinnie the Vampire, Frankie the Lounge Singer, Priscilla the Princess, and Cranium the Mad Scientist from Boo Alley and watched as they saved Halloween from the bad witch Wendella.
There was no crying in the front row so I knew the creators of the production had succeeded in creating a tale that entertained without scaring the little people in attendance.
At $19.50 per ticket, the cost was reasonable for a special night out with the family. I’d definitely recommend this show to moms with young children.
Sorry you missed it? Good news – there is a new show called The Magic of Santa coming to the Pacific Coliseum in December. For more information, visit themagicofsanta website.
