A new ad­ven­ture waits be­hind each of nine doors in Dis­ney stage show

Chattanooga Times Free Press - ChattanoogaNow - - FRONT PAGE - STAFF RE­PORT

Mickey Mouse, Min­nie Mouse, Don­ald Duck and Goofy will open doors to un­for­get­table Dis­ney mo­ments dur­ing two per­for­mances of “Dis­ney Live! Mickey and Min­nie’s Door­way to Magic” at McKen­zie Arena on Fri­day, Feb. 16.

This new, spell­bind­ing stage pro­duc­tion is filled with grand il­lu­sions that will de­light the young and young at heart. The au­di­ence joins Mickey, Min­nie, Don­ald and Goofy as they step through nine magic doors that are mys­te­ri­ous por­tals into un­for­get­table mo­ments show­cased in the an­i­mated fea­tures “Tan­gled,” “Aladdin,” “Cin­derella,” “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” “Fan­ta­sia” and “Toy Story.”

With ev­ery turn of a door­knob, a new sur­prise is en­coun­tered.

See the Fairy God­mother trans­form Cin­derella’s rags into a beau­ti­ful gown in a split sec­ond; the “Toy Story” gang defy the di­men­sions of Andy’s toy box with the help of green Army men; and the stage de­but of Ra­pun­zel and Flynn Rider as they rise into the sky amid float­ing lanterns.

“This show is about bring­ing to life the mag­i­cal places and mo­ments

that ex­ist with the world of Dis­ney in a very au­then­tic and mod­ern way,” says pro­ducer Alana Feld. “By us­ing magic and il­lu­sions, we’ve reimag­ined iconic scenes and en­hanced them, cre­at­ing a great con­nec­tion to the char­ac­ters and sto­ries for our au­di­ences.”

The au­di­ence is en­cour­aged to in­ter­act with Dis­ney char­ac­ters us­ing magic words given by Tinker Bell. When Mickey and friends en­cour­age fam­i­lies to wig­gle their fin­gers, stomp the ground and make some magic all around, they as­sist in mov­ing along the plot.

“What’s ex­cit­ing about this show for me per­son­ally is that it’s the first Dis­ney Live! I have pro­duced since be­com­ing a mom,” says Feld. “Now when I’m de­cid­ing on con­tent, I au­to­mat­i­cally think how my daugh­ter will re­spond to it and how ev­ery­thing cre­ated by our amaz­ing team of pro­fes­sion­als is geared to­ward mak­ing ‘ Mickey and Min­nie’s Door­way to Magic’ a way for fam­i­lies to fall in love with Dis­ney all over again.”
