Frisco Kids Guide to Holiday Entertainment

There's a ton of great holiday entertainment options out there. I'll do a few posts of holiday entertainment, starting with this one.

Look for holiday shows on Goldstar, where you'll save 50% on ticket prices.

They have early start times (7 or 7:30 p.m.) and several matinees
Where: Curran Theater, SF
Tickets: here - $45-160 (Goldstar tickets are $60)
Info:  "An international cast of multi-talented and brilliantly costumed artists come to life and perform astonishing feats of disbelief: experience gingerbread men flipping mid-air, toy soldiers marching on thin wires, snowmen daringly balancing, icemen powerfully sculpting, penguins spinning, puppets dancing and reindeer soaring high above a landscape of holiday wonderment.  An original music score and some seasonal favorites accompany hundreds of astonishing costumes and holiday dreams in a setting of gigantic gifts, colossal candy canes and 30-foot towering soldiers, creating a wonderland of spectacle."

Beach Blanket Babylon Holiday Show
