All-New Disney On Ice Premieres in Baltimore
Mickey’s Search Party is live October 10 – 14
Disney On Ice’s newest show, Mickey’s Search Party, is set to hit the ice at the Royal Farms Arena Wednesday – Sunday, October 10 – 14, for nine performances. Your favorite characters from Frozen, Beauty and the Beast, Coco and more will be on hand to entertain audiences on ice and even in the air.
Mickey’s Search Party will feature a collection of Disney characters fans know and love portrayed by decorated performer-athletes who push the boundaries of what is possible. Their theatrical talent combined with this innovative Disney On Ice production elevates the live entertainment experience and will leave families with memories to last a lifetime.
Joined by Mickey and Minnie Mouse, live hosts will welcome everyone into the magical world of Disney, setting the stage for an interactive adventure. Guests will take part in a search for clues to find Tinker Bell after Captain Hook tries to capture her magic. Scenes include multi-level production numbers by skaters, performers and acrobats.
“Our goal with any show, no matter where you are in the world, is to deliver transformative performances that captivate audiences time and time again. With this production of Disney On Ice, we have brought the magic closer to guests than ever before by having the audience become an integral part of advancing the narrative as each story unfolds,” said producer Nicole Feld.
“We have pushed the action past the ice, expanding the stage beyond our traditional surface,” Feld added. “The excitement will not only happen in front of fans, but all around them with characters emerging from the stands in unexpected places for one-on-one delightful moments.”
Some of the highlights of the show include:
In the opening number, Club Mickey Mouse-inspired performers will hype up the crowd through cutting-edge figure skating choreography and hoverboard tricks on the ice. Air tracks will also allow the pirates aboard the Jolly Roger to flip, tumble and twist to greater heights as they attempt to
showcase their talents for Captain Hook.
As Miguel from the movie Coco crosses the marigold bridge, he finds himself in the mystical Land of the Dead. In this colorful performance, skeletons on sway poles swing back and forth over the audience in a dazzling display in a celebration of family.
Through video projection, Arendelle builds from the ground up, and ice harvesters from Frozen use extreme skating to launch themselves from the mountainous, wintry slopes delivering an performance as they chop their way through blocks of ice.
In another newly designed act, the iconic chandelier scene in “Be Our Guest” from Beauty and the Beast comes to life as Belle and the enchanted objects become a rotating carousel using aerial silks.
Aerial straps combined with adagio pair skating will elevate Ariel’s transformation from mermaid to human creating a spell-bounding sequence high above the ice with Prince Eric to the classic song, “Kiss The Girl.”
Creative costume design and fabrication will enhance the scenes as the ensemble imitate life “Under the Sea” from Disney’s The Little Mermaid and will also give the illusion the ice is enveloped in flames as Moana encounters Te Ka on her daring voyage to restore the heart of Te Fiti.
