This time, we are so excited to take our audience on a whole new adventure and show them a night at the movies through our eyes.” Jenna continued, “This is going to be so much fun performing familiar and iconic movie moments reimagined live on stage and set to our dancing for our fans. We can’t wait for the audience to see it!”
