Families don’t have to wait for the next snowfall in South Mississippi — it will snow during every performance of “Christmas on Ice” at Beau Rivage Resort & Casino Dec. 15-25.
The show is a family experience where the grandparents have as much fun as the kids. Everyone a chance to dress warmly in their Christmas sweaters and take family photos in the Beau Rivage atrium amid sparkling white lights, more than 2,000 poinsettias, 150 decorated trees and animated holiday decor.
This year’s show is Christmas journey, said Mary Cracchiolo Spain, regional director of public relations at Beau Rivage Resort & Casino.
“It’s really a magic snowglobe come to life,” she said. Charlie the elf arrives from the North Pole and takes the audience on an adventure. At the end, some kids from the audience will be asked aboard Santa’s sleigh ride.
Rand Productions returns with the holiday tradition, along with a cast of singers and world-class acts, Christmas music and elaborate costumes.
“If you take a look at the cast bios, you’ll see this year we have more world-level skaters and gold medalists than before, and we have more than just skaters in the show,” said producer Jeb Rand, president and executive producer for Rand Enterprises & Productions.
