Disney on Ice Princesses & Heroes – Family Entertainment Review

Prince-Philip-battles-Maleficent

Have a little princess or wee prince in your family?  Then you need to go see Disney on Ice Princesses & Heroes!  We took our 8 and 6 year old to see the show and they loved it!  We have been in years past and Feld Entertainment never ceases to impress us year after year.

The choreography, set design, and costumes are fantastic!  This year’s show is based on different fairytales and the starring princesses and their heroes along side them.  Of course no Disney show would be complete with Mickey and Minnie who were our MCs for the event.  Tinkerbell also made her appearance to kick off the show and in between stories to magically change the scenery and story with her wand.

The show kicks off with Aladdin being chased through the market and meeting his princess Jasmine.  The wonderful skating in this act left us knowing that the show was going to be a good one.

Hi Ho, Hi Ho it’s off to work we go.  Snow White and her prince joined the show with 7 of the cutest sidekicks…the 7 dwarfs.  I must say that Dopey was as cute as can be and pretty funny too.

Beauty and the Beast is one of the faves in our house and this part of the show did not let us down.  The choreographing and costumes for “Be Our Guest” was fantastic!

Of course everyone’s favourite mermaid was along for the show with her faithful friend flounder, her sisters, Sebastian and King Tritan himself.  The story wouldn’t be complete without Ursula and I must say that her costume was phenomenal.

Hands down my son said the best part of the show was Sleeping Beauty when Princess Phillip fought the fire breathing (yes real fire) dragon to fight for his princess.  “It was SO cool!”

Probably the most famous princess of all, Cinderella, appeared in her carriage and danced her night away with her prince with amazing lifts and skating.

Last but not least we were dazzled by Rapunzel and Flynn Ryder taking the ice

Disney on Ice is a great family tradition and a show not to be missed!

THE LITTLE MERMAID

Ontario’s O-FISH-AL Family Musical!

Opening Night: Wednesday, November 27, 2013 at 7pm

For nearly over 20 years, generations of families have flocked to the Elgin Theatre for Ross Petty Productions’ annual holiday pantomimes, one of the longest-standing theatrical traditions in Ontario. With their 18th consecutive fractured fairy tale ahead of them, Ross Petty Productions has Toronto awash with excitement to catch THE LITTLE MERMAID live on stage from November 22, 2013 – January 4, 2014, a must-sea this holiday season.

The centuries-old tradition of British pantomime is a boisterously fun form of musical comedy for the entire family and this year, Ross Petty and his creative team are exploring the underwater world of Hans Christian Andersen in a story where anyFIN goes!

This year’s leading lady is musical theatre powerhouse, Chilina Kennedy. With the help of a motley crew of aquatic friends, the title character’s love-riddled quest to save the Toronto harbour is also aided by Dan Chameroy’s sea-lacious Dame Plumbum, and Marc Devigne, Canadian Idol season one finalist, starring opposite Kennedy as the buoy of her dreams

Second City funnyman Reid Janisse, who made his panto debut last year as Ham (the porcine Don Cherry), returns as Carl the Clown Fish while also penning the O-FISH-AL script. Petty himself is trading in his spanks for scales to play Ogopogo the evil sea wizard, radiant redhead Jordan Clark, winner of So You Think You Can Dance Canada season four, and star of Family Channel’s The Next Step TV series, will make her panto debut as Ogopogo’s slithery assistant, while fan-favourite Eddie Glen returns as Petty’s reluctant sidekick.

Shorely, Ross Petty’s interpretation of Canada’s mythical lake creature will bring a tsunami of boos and hisses at this year’s family-friendly fractured holiday entertainment!
