Unlike folks in Florida, who can get their fill of live Disney shows basically anytime they want, life in the north comes with no such luxury. Which is why the upcoming Disney On Ice – Princesses and Heroes show is worth marking on your calendar.
This enchanting Disney production arrives in Indianapolis January 22-26, 2014 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in downtown Indianapolis. But you might want to bring a sweater, ‘cause all that ice can get cold!
Disney On Ice – Princesses and Heroes pulls out all the stops, from the multi-faceted storyline, colorful costumes and challenging choreography to the elaborate stage set, the centerpiece of which is a multi-level, cascading waterfall that uses 125 gallons of water.
So, what to expect at this year’s show?
Disney On Ice, an Overview…
The show offers condensed versions of classic ‘princess’ stories, moderated by Mickey, and even Tinkerbell. Who can forget such favorites as Sleeping Beauty and Prince Phillip; Belle and the Beast; Cinderella and Prince Charming; and Little Mermaid Ariel and Prince Eric? Even characters from more modern Disney fairy tales are included, like Tiana and Naveen from “The Princess and the Frog,” and Rapunzel and Flynn Ryder from “Tangled.”
One stage prop that will most definitely thrill the kids is a dragon that measures nearly 12 feet tall and 30 feet long. Oh, and did I mention he breathes real fire? The dragon is featured in the story of Sleeping Beauty and Prince Phillip.
And then there’s Prince Ali, who with the help of his Genie, shows Jasmine a world she never knew existed. This animated show was an instant classic back when it first came to theaters in the ’90s—ah, the memories!
And let’s not forget Belle, whose father is imprisoned by the Beast. When she offers herself in exchange for her father, she is shocked to discover that her captor to be an enchanted prince. Suffice it to say, her journey is filled with new friends and adventure!
I could go on, but then that wouldn’t leave anything to your imagination!
It’s not often that a production of this scale comes to Indianapolis, let alone a Disney production of this scale. Disney On Ice – Princesses and Heroes is a chance to experience these classic Disney stories with the kids. Just remember to bring a sweater!
