Disney on Ice to come to Birmingham for sparktacular show

Solihull Editorial 19th Oct, 2015 Updated: 21st Oct, 2016   0

ELSA, Anna and Olaf will be joined by Ariel, Lightning McQueen and all the favourite Toy Story characters when Disney on Ice stops off in Birmingham.

The new, refreshed production will be coming to the Barclaycard Arena from October 21 to November 1.

This year Mickey and Minnie Mouse, with all their friends, will be taking families on an adventure to four magical locations in the Worlds of Enchantment.

Audiences will start off with a visit to see Woody, Buzz and Jessie along with the rest of the life-sized Toy Story characters before they are taken down under the sea to sing all the favourite Little Mermaid songs with the crazy crab Sebastian and the beautiful Ariel.

Favourite characters from Cars will then take to the ice wowing all with their life-sized costumes and high-speed stunts ‘like you have never seen before’.

Audiences will then finish their journey in the fantastical wintery world of Arendelle with royal sisters Anna and Elsa who will be sharing their heart felt story of true love.

From wheels to waves, icy wonderlands to infinity and beyond, this is a show nobody will want to miss.

Keri Jones, who is a tour co-ordinator and former Disney on Ice skater, said they were really excited to get out on the road and see some of the great places across Europe.

She added: “We have only been going a few weeks so it is all very fresh and new.

“So far we have had really good reactions to this show and all popular stories – some of toys get the best reaction of the show when they come out and the cars are like nothing you have seen before.

“We have a little bit for everybody so everyone has such a good time.”

Keri said this year’s show was a slightly different version than what had ever been shown before so there would be something new for those audiences who saw the show last year.

She added that a lot of work went into making the show what it was including their amazing world class figure skaters from places across the globe, including Canada Ukraine and Russia and that in total they had 41 skaters, 13 crew and five members of staff.

She added that it took 12 hours to build the set and get it just right and four hours to take it down.

Producer Nicole Feld added: “Our re-­creation of Arendelle and the visual splendor on the ice sets the stage for the magical transformation from summer to winter.

“While it might seem obvious that Frozen is well suited for the ice, this Disney On Ice production will touch audiences emotionally through innovative show elements and world-class skating.”
