Disney On Ice Presents ROCKIN' EVER AFTER, Beginning 8/31 in Lakeland, FL
Disney On Ice presents Rockin' Ever After. This new ice spectacular will launch a North American tour performing in more than 70 cities beginning on August 31, 2012 in Lakeland, Fla. Tickets for all 2012 engagements will go on sale July 20, 2012.
In a new twist on fairytale fun, favorite Disney characters compete to be the next superstar in comical segments leading up to the tales of show stopping princesses - Ariel, Rapunzel, Belle, and Merida from Disney--Pixar's BRAVE in her ice debut!
"The most exciting part of bringing a fearless and independent character like Merida to the ice for the first time is knowing that she has a powerful and inspiring message to deliver about finding the courage to determine one's own fate," says Producer Nicole Feld. "We think her story translates well to the ice and will really resonate with today's audience."
Produced by Feld Entertainment, Rockin' Ever After remixes the stories of Disney's most adventurous heroines with upbeat music and energetic choreography that will have audiences singing, dancing and cheering for their beloved Disney idols. Mickey and Minnie encounter the most talented performers in the land with an all-star lineup that includes Sebastian and the Daughters of Triton from The Little Mermaid, the rowdy pub thugs from Tangled and the spunky enchanted servants from Beauty and the Beast. The journey continues to the Scottish highlands where audiences will be captivated and star struck by Merida, as an exhilarating archery contest ensues for the right to marry the fiery redhead.
"Our challenge in developing Rockin' Ever After was figuring out how to highlight moments from these beloved stories in a way that reflects the type of entertainment that families value today," says Producer Juliette Feld. "By pulling elements from the talent show trend on contemporary television, we developed a truly unique way to lead into each fairytale."
