Dis­ney on Ice’s Fol­low Your Heart will host eight per­for­mances at the Royal Farms Arena, Thurs­day – Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 27 – 30. In ad­di­tion to Find­ing Dory and Inside Out, the show is a great mix of more than 60 char­ac­ters, from old fa­vorites such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Fan­ta­sia to Toy Story and Frozen. Dis­ney on Ice would not be com­plete with­out Mickey Mouse and Min­nie Mouse, who will also make an ap­pear­ance on the ice.

“One of the most mag­i­cal things about Dis­ney On Ice is the per­form­ers’ abil­ity to au­then­ti­cally show­case the best qual­i­ties of Dis­ney char­ac­ters,” said Di­rec­tor Patty Vin­cent. “At our show, moms and dads are able to wit­ness the pro­duc­tion through the eyes of their chil­dren, al­low­ing them to reconnect with their fa­vorite char­ac­ters and mak­ing them feel like a kid all over again.”

The sto­ry­line for Fol­low Your Heart al­lows fam­i­lies to join in on the deep-sea ad­ven­ture as Dory, along with her friends Nemo, Mar­lin and Hank, em­barks on a life-chang­ing un­der­wa­ter ex­cur­sion. It also takes the au­di­ence into Ri­ley’s Emo­tions to help her find the con­fi­dence to win a hockey cham­pi­onship and to ex­pe­ri­ence the emo­tional roller­coaster of growing up.

“What makes this Dis­ney On Ice pro­duc­tion so special is the va­ri­ety of sto­ries about self-dis­cov­ery, courage and com­pas­sion,” said Ex­ec­u­tive Vice Pres­i­dent of Feld En­ter­tain­ment and Pro­ducer of Dis­ney On Ice presents Fol­low Your Heart Nicole Feld. “Each el­e­ment of this show was care­fully planned so our fans could ex­pe­ri­ence fa­vorite Dis­ney mo­ments while be­liev­ing in their own des­tiny.”

“We learn that fam­ily isn’t just who your mom and dad are, but it is also who your friends are,” said Sara Buck-Lalonde who por­trays Cin­derella.

She, along with Ra­pun­zel, Ariel, Tiana, Snow White and the rest of the Dis­ney Princesses show the au­di­ence the “power of the princesses.”

“The show is high im­pact and high en- ergy,” said Buck-Lalonde, who takes turns with the other princesses to per­form a silks and serial act. “It features ac­ro­bat­ics and tricks and some­thing for ev­ery­one. Kids of all ages love all of the danc­ing and singing, and their eyes light up when their fa­vorites char­ac­ters come out.”

Buck-Lalonde has been with the pro­duc­tion com­pany Feld En­ter­tain­ment since 2010 and has also starred in Dis­ney On Ice shows Princesses and Heroes and Let’s Cel­e­brate! She gets to per­form with her hus­band Sacha Lo­lade who lit­er­ally plays

her Prince Charm­ing. They have por­trayed the royal cou­ple for sev­eral dif­fer­ent Dis­ney on Ice shows.

“It’s been a re­ally great ad­ven­ture. We get to travel the world and go sight­see­ing to­gether,” she said. “But the best part is with­out a doubt skat­ing with the love of my life. We are look­ing for­ward to com­ing to Bal­ti­more and hope that ev­ery­one will come see Dis­ney on Ice presents Fol­low Your Heart.”
