A brand new Disney on Ice spectacular is coming to Newcastle in the autumn and this one is set to be bigger than ever.
Hosted by Mickey and Minnie Mouse, the show promises to wow audiences with a magical journey through both classic and modern Disney tales.
The ‘celebration of the century’ will feature more than 50 Disney stars who will be celebrating the legacy of Walt Disney, 100 years of magic.
Families will join the fun in an exciting opening number that salutes Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse as the original hosts of Disney On Ice, and launches a sing-along score of melodious masterpieces, stunning choreography, beautiful costumes and intricate sets.
Audiences will travel to the heart of Africa with Disney’s The Lion King, come along for an adventure in friendship with the gang from Disney Pixar’s Toy Story and watch in amazement as Belle breaks the Beast’s curse in the tale of Beauty & The Beast.
Fans will enter the magical kingdom of Arendelle from Disney’s Frozen and
journey up the North Mountain with hilarious snowman Olaf and rugged mountain-man Kristoff, as they help royal sisters Anna and Elsa discover that true love conquers all.
“This particular production is by far the largest Disney On Ice show we currently have touring bringing together everyone’s favourite Disney characters from Snow White, Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse Elsa and Anna,” said Producer Nicole Feld.
“Our vision is for audiences everywhere to dance and sing along to their favourite Disney songs, so we’ve included 30 tunes that they know and love.”
This year’s Disney On Ice production showcases some of Disney’s most beloved characters from 14 treasured stories. Audiences will find themselves dancing out of their seats as a collection of Disney melodies like “Hakuna Matata,” “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” and “Let It Go” fills the arena.”
Fans can rock out to “Turtle Rock” with Nemo, Dory, Squirt and his rambunctious turtle friends, and fall in love with a musical montage of dazzling prince and princess pairs skating to “At Last I See the Light,” “A Whole New World” and more.
“This is a show, more than any other, which is truly for everybody,” said Producer Kenneth Feld. “When I sit with the audience, I see those that are grandparents, like I am, enjoying a lot of the classic Disney stories, while young kids and parents really respond to modern day favourites like Frozen.”
Disney on Ice will run at the Utilita Arena October 2-6. Tickets are on pre-sale at a discounted price to those who sign up as priority customers until they go on general sale at 9am on Friday 10 May.
