Glasgow - Braehead Arena - Friday 5 and Sunday 7 March 2010
When the curtains are drawn back to reveal the newest stage show experience - Disney Live! Three Classic Fairy Tales, audiences will find themselves on an enchanted adventure journeying through the awe-inspiring stories of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Cinderella, and Beauty and the Beast.
Tony Award winning producer Kenneth Feld says: "With genuine Disney characters, familiar songs and nostalgia hidden in each storyline, Disney Live! presents Three Classic Fairy Tales is one of the closest and most intimate Disney experiences that we have ever produced. Whether the audience knows the stories or not, they will leave the show inspired by the quality of the performance and the unwavering spirits that these beloved princesses have. This show was built specifically for families, for kids, for people familiar and unfamiliar with the stories and for everyone that believes dreams really do come true," added Kenneth Feld. "We want then to walk away with a feeling of wonderment and the memory of a heartwarming live experience!"
The Disney Live! adventure begins when Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy embark on an unexpected quest and find a magical storybook hidden in Mickey’s attic. The four pals curiously turn the pages and discover Snow White as she searches for her one true love, Cinderella getting ready for her magical night at the ball and Belle from Beauty and the Beast as she finds happiness in the most unusual place. Along the way, the audience will be invited to join in on the fun by solving clues, clapping along and singing time-honored songs, such as 'Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo', 'Heigh Ho' and 'Be Our Guest'.
This Disney Live! production features behind-the-scenes collaboration from some of the greatest creative talents in live entertaintnent. They were challenged to develop show elements that would appeal to audiences from around the world and also engage people that might be unfamiliar with the featured tales. Director Sherilyn Draper says: "These stories paved the way for us because the themes of courage, believing in oneself and love, are undeniably universal. We wanted to tell these tales with as much vivid detail and imagination as possible, but we also had to keep the show easy to follow."
This attention to detail can be seen throughout Scenic Designer Stanley Meyer's uniquely constructed set. Starting from Mickey's attic, the set transforms into an enchanted forest where audiences meet Snow White as she wishes at the well and they also encounter the Seven Dwarfs traipsing through the lush woods on their way to work. The set then transforms into a brilliant castle where Cinderella first laid eyes on Prince Charming. Finally, the set is converted into a quaint town in France where the story of Beauty and the Beast unfolds.
The lighting takes front stage in Disney Live! presents Three Classic Fairy Tales and is key to helping expand the environment. Lighting Designer Norm Schwab says: "The lighting is very impactful and helps reflect the scene. During Cinderella's ball we created a scene so luminous that it feels delightfully enchanted. However. when audiences encounter the Evil Queen from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, they will witness thunderous hues of light created tor a very different kind of enchantment; one that is almost chilling."
Beyond highlighting the elaborate sets and stunning costume the lighting is also at the forefront of cutting edge of technology. The performers have sensors attached to their costumes so that lights can automatically follow wherever they move. Tony Awards winning Costume Designer Gregg Barnes threaded together glittering embellishments to give the performers standout garments that sparkle and shimmer under the show lights by using lavish layers, exotic trimmings and yards of flowing fabric. He admits that the stories provided him with more than enough inspiration to create a vision for his stunning designs. Gregg Barnes says: "What's spectacular about this production is that it lends itself to several different looks. In one act, the audience will see incredible range in the costumes from the simple villagers in Beauty and the Beast to the glamorous gowns in Cinderella's ball."
The Choreographer of this Disney Live production, Robert Mackey, says: "The classic songs found in this show are sometimes elegant and soft, and sometime very upbeat. They allow a variety of high-energy movements, sharp precision and elegant formation."
