Dolly Parton Using 3-D for Christmas Show
Dolly Parton is getting ready for her production of ‘A Christmas Carol’ at Dollywood theme park in Pigeon Forge, Tenn.
Along with eight new songs, the show is also set to use high-definition 3-D technology to present life-sized holograms of Jacob Marley and the Ghosts of Christmases Past, Present and Future, with the Ghost of Christmas Past being played by Parton herself.
“I love the fact that Dollywood grows with the times and we’ll have a hologram,” she says (quote via Examiner.com). “I think people will really love that I’m always going to be here.”
‘A Christmas Carol’ performances begin on Nov. 9 and run through Jan. 4 as part of Dollywood’s Smoky Mountain Christmas Festival.
Parton also recently announced a $300 million expansion plan for Dollywood that will span over the next ten years. Plans include a roller coaster opening in 2014 for kids ages four and up, as well as the construction of the 300-room Dream More Resort hotel, expected to open in 2015.
