We attended the Thomas Kinkade Christmas of Light show. Best show ever! Beautiful backgrounds, talented singers & musicians. Learned several were from our local area in the Shoals of Alabama. So nice to be able to meet them after the performance.

We were not sure what to expect when we went into this show. When it was over all we wanted was to see it again. The musical talent in this show was amazing. Daniel Emmett did not leave a dry eye with his versions of the "Prayer" and " O Holy Night". I cannot wait to see more from him.... More

There really are no words for this event!! The talent is thru the roof! I cried at "The Prayer" The voices are the best in the area hands down! The production is spectacular in every way. The look, sound, costume, setting, décor it is all top notch. I wish they would offer a year long rendition of the show for... More

A family friendly tribute to a great artist. It combines Thomas Kinkade's spectacular paintings with traditional Christmas music and songs, as well as future classics from award winning composers. We traveled a great distance to experience this production and we were not disappointed. As the show came to a close, we were filled with the joyful message of the Christmas... More

I cannot say anything that could be better worded than most of the reviews. We loved the performance. My career offered the opportunity to attend shows all over North America for thirty years and this performance is great. On December 23 there was a rather small audience. The show deserves full theaters. This theater is excellent but I doubt that... More

I took my mother and her BFF (both in their 80's) to see the show - I read a few reviews prior but really did not know what to expect. It's unlike anything you've ever seen - There are 7 gigantic screen drops that are used as the backgrounds to the performance. My mother and her friend were in awe... More

This is a wonderful show. The singing is amazing and I do not like opera but I melted when they were singing. It also brings a new appreciation for Thomas Kincaid work and what a painter he was and talent that we have lost. Thank you to his brother Paul for keeping him alive in our hearts and on the...

We weren't sure what to expect from the description of this show, but frankly we were blown away by the quality of the talent and special effects...7 video screens wrap around you with the gorgeous artwork of Thomas Kinkaid...4 incredible vocalists with amazing talent...a band led by a Grammy-award-winning composer...new original songs interspersed with old classics...even "snow" falling on the...
