PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Dollywood has opened new holiday shows and new technology that features Dolly as a hologram.
Dollywood’s A Christmas Carol, uses the hologram to show the ghosts of Christmas. Dolly is the Ghost of Christmas Past, and it too months of recording and planning to put it all together.
"We pride ourselves in when you're watching this you feel like there's two actual actors on stage," Justin Bradley, Entertainment Manager. "We have to time it with our actors to make sure than when we hit go that everything falls into place."
Aaron Hunt plays Scrooge in the production. He says it's more of a challenge to act with the hologram.
"It's one of the more challenging things that I've done. But it's such a pleasure to be in on such a cutting edge technology to have a chance to do it and to really challenge myself," said Hunt. "The additional piece is that I have to think about the numbers on the stage. Dolly shows up at 4 she moves to 2, I have to make sure I counter to six."
Dollywood’s A Christmas Carol is running at Dollywood during the parks regular hours.
