On Saturday I went to see Hamners’ Unbelievable Variety Christmas Show and was highly entertained.
These talented performers definitely have the definition of “variety” down to a science because every time the curtain closed and opened again, I had no idea what kind of act I was in for next.
Although it’s a Christmas show, don’t expect to see all the holiday trimmings right away — the first half is the best of Hamners’ unbelievable variety from the year round show.
You’ll experience a bit of everything from ventriloquism and acrobatics to incredible vocal performances, magic, comedy and illusions. I was blown away by the things these performers were doing. I kept trying to figure out the magic tricks, but to no avail. Nevertheless, one particular magic act was centered around birds. The magician kept pulling bird after bird out of a simple cloth. It was incredible. And these were real birds, by the way. Several of them even flew across the audience directly overhead which made for an awe-inspiring, extraordinary experience.
I also really enjoyed the ventriloquist. She has perfected her craft so well that at times, it’s difficult to remember the doll isn’t really the one doing the talking. I can’t imagine how much time and practice it takes to actually make that act believable.
The acrobatics had to be my favorite part of the show though. The show features a Russian duo that perform some jaw-dropping feats of strength and agility. You’ll be amazed by all that they can do!
The second half of the show was starkly different with creative holiday sets, festive costumes and of course, Christmas music! It was a lot of fun and I could tell the performers were having a blast as well. Although the second half is purely a Christmas celebration, it still featured that unstoppable variety that keeps this fast paced show interesting.
