Tickets are on sale now at Computicket.

Disney on Ice celebrates 100 Years of Magic in a once-in-a-lifetime skating spectacular that brings together the legacy of Disney in the tradition of Disney on Ice quality that has entertained more that 135 million guests worldwide to date! With features from seven blockbuster all-time favourite movies;  The Lion King, Aladdin, Toy Story, The Incredibles, Beauty and the Beast, Mulan and Finding Nemo that have a worldwide box office total of over 2 billion dollars and are listed in the Top 100 Movies Ever Worldwide by www.the-movie-times.comDisney On Ice is not-to-be-missed family entertainment!

Disney fans of all ages will be singing along and clapping to many of the 24 memorable Disney tunes such as “When you wish upon a star” from Pinocchio; “A whole new world” from Aladdin; “Can you feel the love tonight?” and “Hakuna Matata” from The Lion King and “You’ve got a friend in me” from Toy Story.

With Mickey and Minnie leading the fun, audiences enjoy breathtaking production numbers choreographed by Emmy Award®-winner Sarah Kawahara.  Kawahara previously worked with Michelle Kwan and choreographed the skating segment for the Opening Ceremonies of the 2002 Winter Olympics.

Complementing Kawahara’s fabulous skate sequences are the memorable tunes compiled by music directors Art Kempel and Stan Beard that bring the wonderful memories of Disney to life on ice. Scenic Designer David Potts and Lighting Designer LeRoy Bennett create the mood and settings that showcase extraordinary Disney moments.

Outfitting this cast of more than 60 characters was the challenge facing Costume Designer Scott Lane. His dazzling designs range from Mickey’s Marching Band, to the “It’s a Small World” dolls, to the stars of Mulan and Finding Nemo. The bright colors and minimal structure in the Nemo costumes allow the characters to move freely in order to mimic the natural movement in water.  Renowned designer Bob Mackie also lends his talents to a red sequined evening gown worn by Minnie.

Scenic Designer David Potts, who has worked on numerous Broadway productions, creates a theatrical atmosphere on ice. Skaters weave around and enliven the “It’s a Small World” sequence amidst sparkling floats that turn into a radiant light parade; a blanket of snow and an avalanche fall as Mulan battles the Huns; and a giant present is opened to reveal Buzz Lightyear as he’s first introduced to that favorite toy cowboy, Woody and his pal Jessie.

Don’t miss this wonderful Disney entertainment skating spectacular. Join Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Pumbaa and their many Disney friends in celebrating 100 !
