‘Mickey and the Magical Map’ Opening May 25 at Disneyland
Mickey Mouse and some of his most magical friends are embarking on exciting musical adventures in the all new Mickey and the Magical Map live show that opens next month in the newly refurbished Fantasyland Theater at Disneyland.
In the show, the sorcerer Yen Sid directs his singing and dancing Mapmakers to paint a map that is capable of taking dreamers to any place imaginable. And, once again, sorcerer’s apprentice Mickey Mouse lets his curiosity get the best of him and he allows the map’s magical powers to take him – and the audience – on a journey of imagination with the Mapmakers.
This journey is set to an original song, “Journey of the Imagination,” along with music from classic Disney films. Other Disney characters will make appearances during the show including King Louie, Pocahontas, Mulan, Rapunzel and Flynn Ryder, Princess Tiana, and Sebastian.
“Each new show we create is a chance to push storytelling in a new direction,” said Michael Jung, Theatrical Development Executive, Walt Disney Imagineering Creative Entertainment. “At Disney, we love the challenge of continuously looking at our classic tales and most recent stories to see how we can bring live entertainment and excitement to today’s audiences.”
The show was written by Carolyn Gardner and is directed by Tracy Halas. Steve Bass is the production designer and the creative director is Sylvia Hase. The music is produced by Bruce Healey, supervised and arranged by Timothy Williams and supervised by Matt Walker. The show producer is Ray Coble.
Mickey and the Magical Map is a highlight for 2013 at the Disneyland Resort, and can only be seen at Disneyland.
