Jubilee! Like “The Wizard of Oz” when the man behind the curtain revealed, visitors to “Jubilee! All Access Backstage Walking Tour” will find it’s not what’s in front of the footlights but what’s behind the stage that provides the real show.
Learn everything you’ve ever wanted to know about those legendary Las Vegas showgirls – how they change costumes, what it takes to make each show a spectacular success and how many times during every show do the showgirls have two minutes to climb two flights of stairs, change costumes, headdresses and hair and make it back down the stairs to be in place, just as the curtain rises.
The Backstage Tour allows you to see, up close and personally, how sets are changed, how stages resolve and how this spectacular production has thrilled millions over the past 30 years. You’ll also meet a Jubilee! Showgirl who will discuss what happens backstage that the audience never knows, such as getting your shoe caught in one of the lifts…and you’ll visit the various dressing rooms for a close-up look at the fabulous costumes, concocted of feathers, crystals, glitter and silks by talents such as Bob Mackie and Pete Menefee.
By tour’s end, you’ll be even more amazed than you were in the audience…and much more appreciative of the phrase, “The show must go on!”
