And in other exciting news, star Queenslander, TV personality and mother of two, Shelley Craft is returning for a second year as the national ambassador!! “I know every one of these stories! I have such fond memories from my own childhood, as well as my time working on Saturday Disney. Now a mum of two young girls who LOVE these stories and characters, I’m thrilled to be partnering with Disney On Ice for a second year – and so is my family!” said Shelley.
“Disney On Ice has become a tradition for my family and for the past five years, my daughters and I have traveled to Brisbane to see the show. Each year we create new memories, which I value dearly,” said Shelley.
ABOUT THE SHOW: Mouse-ter of Ceremonies Mickey Mouse, sweetheart Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy take to the ice with their friends from beloved Disney movies that span decades from Pinocchio to Frozen. Travel to the heart of Africa with Disney’s The Lion King, come along for an adventure in friendship with the gang from Disney•Pixar’s Toy Story and watch in amazement as Belle breaks the Beast’s curse in the tale of Beauty and the Beast.
Making their Disney On Ice debut, Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde from Zootopia enlist the crowd to help solve an off-ice caper that must be cracked for the on-ice action to begin. Guests will also enjoy a special appearance by royal sisters Anna and Elsa from the number-one animated feature film of all time, Disney’s Frozen. Enter the kingdom of Arendelle and journey up the North Mountain with hilarious snowman Olaf and rugged mountain-man Kristoff as they help the sisters discover that true love conquers all.
“This particular production is by far the largest Disney On Ice show we currently have touring bringing together everyone’s favorite Disney characters from Snow White, Donald Duck, Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse to Elsa and Anna,” said Producer Nicole Feld. “Our vision is for audiences everywhere to dance and sing along to their favorite Disney songs, so we’ve included 30 tunes that they know and love.”
MAKING MEMORIES: Creating memories is synonymous with Disney On Ice, who recently surveyed Australian families about their own childhood memories. The survey of more than 8,000 people revealed the most treasured childhood memory for people was a ‘specific family activity’ (55%), followed by a ‘specific holiday overseas with the family’ (14%), a ‘specific family celebration’ (12%), a ‘major life event e.g. first day of school’ (6%) and ‘receiving a specific toy/game’ (5%).
The survey also found that ‘work pressures’ were a key obstacle for people when creating lasting childhood memories for their child/children, nominated by 57% of respondents. This was followed by ‘conflicting family schedules’ (15%), ‘technology’ (14%), ‘limited or no time with grandparents’ (9%) and ‘academic expectations’ (5%).
Produced by Feld Entertainment, Disney On Ice celebrates 100 Years of Magic will open in Perth on 15 June 2018 and travels to Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Newcastle and Sydney through to 23 July.
