We get asked every year about our entertainers, past and present – do any of them turn their fun summer gig into a career?

Sure! We have lots of success stories to tell from over the years.

And one more HoliStar will twinkle on Broadway tonight.

That’s right – Nick Burroughs opens on Broadway tonight.

Yes, Broadway.

As in New York City.

In the Tony Award-winning smash hit Kinky Boots.

Nick is understudy to Billy Porter (the lead) and Billy gets tonight off.

Do you remember Nick from our “Vinyl Daze” cast from 2012?

Here he is with the full ensembles two years ago:

In 2012, Nick was nominated for Entertainer of the Year for the entire theme park industry and was one of three finalists. Here’s the nomination reel:

Congratulations to all of our entertainers from over the years – whether you’re opening on Broadway, singing and dancing on a cruise ship, directing community theater, teaching music to others, or singing a sweet lullaby to your child (or grandchild) tonight, you’ve touched many lives with your talent.

And Nick – from all of us – Break a Leg tonight!
