Harry and Judy's RV Trip
15th Jul 2014 - Summer 2014
Day 10-July 15, 2014-Dublin's Irish Tenors and Le Grand Cirque and HARRY BREAKS INTO SHOW BIZ

Day 10-July 15, 2014-Branson, Day 3

Beautiful day, high of 78 and sunny, but went down to 65 by 10PM

Started off the day checking the charge card accounts and found one of our cards was used by someone other than us.  What a great way to start the day.  But the charge card company was great and we should have another card delivered to us tomorrow at the resort reservation office so we won’t have to hang around and wait for it.  Of course, we have lots of automatic payments made through this card so we’ll have to change all those.

Our first show at King’s Castle Theater was at 2PM-Dublin’s Irish Tenors and Celtic Ladies-5 men, 4 ladies.  Great show.  Beautiful lighting, costumes, arrangements and music.  We had great seats, second row center, as we usually do when we get the tickets through the visitor’s center.   This one started with a tribute to the armed forces, again playing the songs and having the vets stand.  They sang many different styles from Irish standards, Italian opera, Elton John, Tom Jones, Adele, Freddie Mercury, The Andrews Sisters, Hallelujah and lots more.  They closed with I Believe and Never Walk Alone.  Great voices, great harmony!  One of the best shows we’ve seen.  Because we saw this show we could get discount tickets to another show in this theater.  Our choices were New Jersey Nights, Dancing Queen Tribute to ABBA or Le Grand Cirque.  Le Grand Cirque was the one performing tonight which is the only night we have free.  We could have gotten the same seats but we opted for fourth row center aisle.   Went back to the condo but we didn’t have much time before we had to leave for the next show at 7:30.

Le Grand Cirque-No Words throughout the whole show…but everybody was mesmerized throughout the whole show.  A non-scary clown mime opened the show by leading a conga line with four people in the audience right out the back door.  They had no idea where they were going.  And it only got better! This “clown” was like the ring master. He had the entire audience involved in lots of funny skits and even got Harry up on stage to shake his booty.  A lot of kids at this show, even little ones and everybody was engaged in this clown and his games. Lots of action, hula hoops, wheel of death, aerial and chiffon acts, chair balancing and juggling (by a 10-yr. old).  This was by far the most amazing, entertaining, daring show we’ve seen.  And,let me repeat, not one word was said.  I thought maybe they didn’t speak English until we met them and found out they’re from Florida and of the 12 performers there’s a mom, dad, daughter and three sons, including 10 year old Élan.  GREAT SHOW-I would go back again and again.  What a great way to end the day!

After the show we went to Andy’s Frozen Custard because all that booty shaking got Harry hungry.
