Chicago's United Center
Now - Jan. 31
The newest Disney On Ice spectacular, scheduled to appear at Chicago's United Center Jan. 20-31 and the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Ill., Feb. 2-7, promises to turn an ordinary day into an extraordinary one. Disney On Ice presents Let's Celebrate! features a magical montage of first-time and perennially popular Disney characters celebrating holidays and festivals from around the world.
Disney On Ice presents Let's Celebrate! will be the first time audiences see Princess Tiana and Prince Naveen from the just-released film, Walt Disney Pictures' The Princess and the Frog, live on ice.
Classic and contemporary Disney songs, an original storyline, brilliant costumes and high energy action will have audiences celebrating some of the world's most popular events without ever leaving Chicago - from Halloween with the Disney Villains, to a Valentine's Day Royal Ball, featuring the Disney Princesses. In a fun-packed, ice extravaganza, more than 50 characters from 16 Disney stories will converge and take audiences on a thrilling world tour to exotic destinations like Brazil for a Carnivale parade, Hawaii for a luau party and Japan for a Cherry Blossom festival.
"Disney On Ice presents Let's Celebrate! gives families a reason to celebrate no matter what time of year it is," says Producer Kenneth Feld. "This uplifting and unforgettable spectacle showcases different celebrations around the globe, and families will walk away remembering to celebrate the everyday joys and successes in their lives."
"Audiences are going to love this colossal celebration," says Producer Nicole Feld. "We take the most exciting holidays and special events and pack them into one monumental show. You can travel the world in style and experience all the fun and excitement with your favorite Disney characters, including the newest Disney Princess, Tiana."
To create this positively unforgettable party on ice, Kenneth Feld and Nicole Feld led a creative team of industry experts including choreographer Cindy Stuart, who's worked with Olympians Robin Cousins, Katarina Witt, Brian Orser and Rosalyn Sumners, assistant choreographer and former national competitor Doug Webster, and technical pair coach David Pelletier who, with his partner and wife Jamie Salé, won 2002 Olympic and 2001 World Championship titles. Also lending their considerable creative talents to the production were costume designer Vanessa Leuck from Broadway's The Little Mermaid, and lighting designer Alex Reardon who has designed concert lighting for artists including the Dixie Chicks, LeAnn Rimes, Motley Crue and Paul Simon.
