Disney On Ice Treasure Trove
Hit the ice with Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald, and Goofy as they embark on a treasure hunt for some of the most popular Disney films ever. Audiences will experience a medley of their favorite animated Disney movies throughout the years including the very first full-length animated film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, and the 50th Disney film, Tangled. With eight movies and more than 50 Disney characters featured, Feld Entertainment’s Disney On Ice Treasure Trove has a story for every generation.
During the Disney On Ice presents Treasure Trove Press Conference held November 29 at the Gloria Maris Banquet Hall in Gateway Mall, the press was treated to a preview of what will happen in the most anticipated ice show in the country.
“We’ve chosen some of the greatest gems from the Disney treasure chest for this production,” says Producer Nicole Feld. “We went through our entire portfolio of Disney On Ice shows, trying to bring something very different to audiences. We wanted to pick action-packed stories that really resonated with not only kids today, but with their parents as well. Treasure Trove has everything from the swashbuckling pirates in Peter Pan to the comedic duo Timon and Pumbaa in The Lion King.”
Before the action begins, audiences have the opportunity to get fit with a taste of what Disney On Ice skaters do to prepare themselves for every show. Disney/Pixar’s The Incredibles lead a warm-up routine that will have everyone up on their feet. Audiences will stretch with Mrs. Incredible, run in place with Dash, pump iron with Mr. Incredible, and work up some extra energy with Violet. The warm-up routine promotes keeping kids active, while also allowing them to participate in the show.
“Crowd interaction is a key component to the Disney On Ice experience. We want the audience to feel as if they’re a part of the show, and that’s evident in this production,” says Producer Juliette Feld. “Rapunzel and Flynn share a special moment with an audience member when they release a lantern together, Sebastian invites everyone to be a part of the rhythm during ‘Under the Sea,’ Peter Pan and Tinker Bell encourage the crowd to echo the crocodile’s ‘tick tock,’ and Aladdin stops to shake hands with guests in Agrabah.”
Audiences will be amazed to see how many of their favorite Disney films and characters are featured. The show includes moments from classic Disney films like Peter Pan, The Lion King, Alice in Wonderland, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Aladdin, and The Little Mermaid, as well as new favorites Tangled and Princess and the Frog.
Bringing such a wide variety of Disney animated features to life presented an interesting challenge for the show’s creative team. “I love the contrast between the very first animated Disney treasure, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, and the most recent, Tangled,” says director Patty Vincent. “I went back to the archives to re-watch Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, so that I could appreciate the fact that we’re going from the 1930s to today in one production. It’s amazing to see where we came from and where we are now, not only with the animation but also with the storytelling.”
