Disney Live Returns To Scotland With Three Classic Fairy Tales
Thursday, 21 January 2010
Disney Live! will present the newest Disney stage show, Three Classic Fairy Tales at Braehead Arena from Friday, March 5.
Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald and Goofy guide audiences on a fun-packed journey through the universally popular fairy tale stories of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Cinderella, and Beauty and the Beast. The audience will help bring the magical stories come to life by singing and clapping along with Mickey and his friends.
This Disney spectacular is currently on a UK-wide tour and is expected to attract over 10,000 people during its three day run at Braehead Arena, Glasgow.
The adventure begins when the Disney Live! friends embark on an unexpected quest and find a magical storybook hidden in Mickey's attic. They turn the pages and discover Snow White as she searches for her one true love, Cinderella getting ready the ball and Belle from Beauty and the Beast as she finds happiness in the most unusual place. Along the way, the audience will be invited to join in on the fun by solving clues and singing classic Disney songs, such as "Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo," "Heigh Ho" and "Be Our Guest."
More than 25 Disney friends make appearances during this spectacular live performance, where moments from each story are brought to life through the terrific transforming set, captivating choreography, innovative lighting and breathtaking costumes. Produced by award-winning family entertainment producers, Feld Entertainment, the dynamic show will create an unforgettable experience for kids and adults alike.
"The interactivity in this show and the connection that the audience will have with the Disney stars is unlike anything we've done before," said Producer Alana Feld. "We wanted to create a show that evokes different emotions and in the end leaves the whole family with a smile on their face."
A highlight of the show is the uniquely constructed set that spectacularly transforms throughout the production, from Mickey's attic, to Snow White's enchanted forest and the dramatic castle where Cinderella first laid eyes on Prince Charming, before finally becoming a quaint town in France where the story of Beauty and the Beast unfolds. Tony Award® winning Costume Designer Gregg Barnes has created incredible costumes that sparkle and shimmer under the show lights.
Steven Armstrong, Director of Marketing in the UK for Feld Entertainment, said: "This show was built specifically for the whole family to experience together. The children in particular will leave the show feeling as though they have been on stage with Mickey, Minnie, and their favourite fairy tale friends."
"Playhouse Disney Live! presents Three Classic Fairy Tales makes an ideal first-time theatre trip for younger children. Performances are selling out very quickly indeed, so anyone who has not yet bought tickets should contact the Braehead Arena box office as soon as possible."
The show, which is brought to Scotland by Feld Entertainment, runs from March 5 to March 7, 2010. Tickets are on sale now, priced from £13.00, and can be purchased from the Braehead Arena box office on 0844 277 6062.
