The Avenue News - - FRONT PAGE - By: LISA HAR­LOW

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.
