We attended opening night of The Smurfs Live on Stage yesterday evening at The Theatre of Marcellus at Emperors Palace. This is an excellent show for the whole family for the holidays! And beyond!
The Smurfs are a treat, and for the parents there is the wonderful evil character of Gargamel! Let me know if you agree? I think he is the best!
THE SMURFS LIVE ON STAGE is a magical adventure that will see the Smurfs battle Gargamel and save Mother Nature, showing the power of family and true team spirit. Fans alike can get ready to cheer the Smurfs as they come to life on the grand stage with life-size mushroom-shaped forest houses, vibrant backdrops and wonderful sing-along music.
Created in 1958 by Pierre Culliford (fondly known as Peyo), the Smurfs have come to be one of the most loved cartoon characters around the world, especially after the launch of the animated cartoon series in 1980. Spanning over three decades, the series was produced by Hanna Barbera and with 272 episodes (dubbed into 40 languages) under its belt, it has enjoyed top ratings in more than 100 countries. Millions of Smurfs DVDs continue to be sold worldwide and recently a new milestone was achieved with the creation and release of the Smurfs 3D movies – the first in 2011, second in 2013 and most recently, the release of the 3D animated adventure-comedy, The Lost Village.
Which Smurf will be chosen as the leader of this year’s parade? Will the Smurfs be able to save themselves? Will they save Mother Nature? Will they stop Gargamel from turning off Spring forever?
