Disney On Ice sets the gold standard with its newest skating spectacular, coming to the Lawlor Events Center on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Families can expect to get tangled up in the Walt Disney Studio’s 50th animated feature “Tangled,” with characters Rapunzel and Flynn, and enter the worlds of other favorite Disney princesses: Tiana, Cinderella, Jasmine, Ariel, Sleeping Beauty, Belle, Mulan and, the one who started it all, Snow White. Youngsters of all ages will enjoy setting sail with Peter Pan, Tinker Bell and the cantankerous Captain Hook and his pirate pals on an adventure beyond Never Land. Audiences will go trekking the wilds of Africa with Simba, Nala, Pumbaa and Timon as they discover the true meaning of the “Circle of Life.” And no one wants to be late to a very important date with Alice and the Mad Hatter as they march with the Queen of Hearts’ Army of Cards.
Disney On Ice choreographer Cindy Stewart said she is particularly proud of the innovative costumes of the Army of Cards, which are painted with red and black suits on opposite sides, so it is difficult for the audience to tell if a skater is going backward or forward.
“‘Treasure Trove’ brought with it exciting challenges,” Stewart said about the show’s choreography and costuming.
“Treasure Trove” will play at 7 p.m. Friday, 1 and 5 p.m. Saturday and 1 p.m. Sunday at Lawlor Events Center. Tickets cost $12, $16, $22, $35 for VIP and $45 for front row. To buy tickets, call 800-325-SEAT (7325), or visit www.ticketswest.com or www.disneyonice.com.
