Radio City Rockettes Coming to Monmouth County

RADIO CITY ROCKETTES matawan library new jersey 2019

It’s never too early to get in the holiday spirit! Before rehearsals begin for the 2019 Christmas Spectacular, the Radio City Rockettes will visit six tri-state area libraries from September 23-27 for festive arts and crafts sessions with fans and families from local communities. One of these libraries are located right here in Monmouth County- Matawan!

Children and families will be able to take photos with the Rockettes, which will be instantly printed and framed inside a snow globe. The Rockettes will join local kids in decorating their snow globes to create a memorable keepsake. The visits are free and open to the public.

Beloved by generations of families and starring the incomparable Radio City Rockettes, the Christmas Spectacular is a one-of-a-kind tradition where the magic of Christmas in New York comes alive. The 2019 production features magnificent Rockettes dance numbers, stunning costumes, and immersive technology and visual effects. In 2018, the Christmas Spectacular introduced both a brand-new finale scene and all-new digital projections. The finale, “Christmas Lights,” begins at the conclusion of the “Living Nativity” scene, which has been performed as part of the Christmas Spectacular since its inception in 1933. The Christmas Spectacular continues to combine traditional numbers with cutting edge technology that extends the scenery beyond the stage to transport audiences from their seats right to the center of the action – from the North Pole, to Central Park, to a manger in Bethlehem. Tickets for the 2019 Christmas Spectacular are on sale now at www.rockettes.com/christmas.
