Skating Spectacular Showcases
A Magical Medley of Holidays and Celebrations
With More Than 50 Favorite Disney Characters
Local families are invited to turn an ordinary day into an extraordinary one when Disney On Ice presents Let’s Celebrate! arrives in the Chicago area for performances Jan. 22 - 26 at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Ill., and Jan. 29 - Feb. 9 at Chicago’s United Center. Featuring more than 50 classic and contemporary Disney characters, Let’s Celebrate! is a captivating compilation of favorite holidays and celebrations from around the world, jam-packed with fun surprises and spectacular skating.
Favorite 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. The whirl-wind tour includes stops in Brazil for a Carnival parade, Hawaii for a luau with Lilo and Stitch, and Japan for the Sakura cherry blossom festival, along with invitations to a frightfully festive Halloween party with Jack Skellington and his Disney Villain friends, and a lavish Valentine’s Day Ball with the Disney Princesses.
“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.”
From twisting and fire-twirling Hawaiian luau dancers to the zombie-like movements of the ghoulish groupies in the Halloween segment, choreographer Cindy Stuart adds high-energy and a unique style to each performance number. Audiences get a taste of New Orleans, where Tiana’s story takes place, in a Mardi Gras performance that is packed with upbeat jazz-influenced choreography and music.
In the Valentine’s Day segment, seven extraordinary pairs of Disney Princesses and Princes skate to contemporary remixes of classic songs from each princess’ story and then come together for a large number to “That’s How You Know” from Walt Disney Pictures’ Enchanted. At a Very Merry UnBirthday Party, a fast-paced skating frenzy ensues as the characters toss around the Mad Hatter’s hat. Then a uniquely choreographed precision skating number follows with Sorcerer Mickey bringing 15 skaters in broom costumes to life and sweeping across the ice in a synchronized formation.
