Audiences will journey up the North Mountain with the hilarious snowman Olaf, rugged mountain-man Kristoff and his loyal reindeer Sven as they help the royal sisters reunite along the way in a story full of action, adventure, magic and unforgettable characters.
“The most exciting part of bringing characters like Anna and Elsa to the ice is knowing that they have a powerful and inspiring message the resonates with audiences as the sisters discover the true meaning of love,” says Producer Nicole Feld, “As parents, we strive to find role models who will empower our children to find their inner strength and believe in themselves”.
Reach For The Stars is an exhilarating showcase of royalty, highlighting the stories of Disney’s most beloved heroines and their faithful companions with energetic choreography that will have audiences singing, dancing and cheering for their favorite Disney characters as they each embark on their own epic journeys. Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse guide fans through a whimsical wonderland where they encounter Sebastian and the Daughters of Triton from Disney’s The Little Mermaid, the rowdy pub thugs from Disney’s Tangled and the loyal enchanted servants from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast.
“By pulling together moments from classic Disney stories to the breakout feature film sensation Frozen and combining them with elements of comedy and music, we developed a truly unique way to re-tell each fairytale,” says Producer Juliette Feld.
Feld Entertainment has once again pushed its cast of world-class skaters to the limit with a Spanish web act featured during The Little Mermaid segment. Ariel transforms from mermaid to human when she emerges from Ursula’s cauldron, and dangles 35-feet over the ice, showing off her brand-new legs. During the Tangled segment, 2,000 feet of silk representing Rapunzel’s magical, golden tresses winds throughout the rafters of the arena and drapes down to the ice for use in a heart-stopping aerial displays as Rapunzel and Flynn Rider escape the tower, flying 25 feet up in the air and performing daring acrobatics.
“Audiences will be entranced as they watch Ariel pulled upwards and then rapidly twirl above the ice,” says Director Patty Vincent. “We wanted to capture the moments and attributes that truly define these beloved characters and we’ve really done that through these stunning athletic performances. That’s what makes Reach For The Stars different, we selected iconic scenes and then took our time on the details to create truly awe-inspiring performances. “
With its extreme talent and enchanting storytelling jam-packed into one show, Disney On Ice is sure to inspire audiences to Reach For The Stars. Everyone takes part from Gaston debating which of his many ‘talents’ he should perform; the harmless hooligans from Tangled unleashing musical mayhem with giant frying pans in hand; and the Daughters of Triton rocking out to a totally 80’s mix bridging the gap between generations and helping families to create memories to last a lifetime.
