Graceful performances, exciting songs, stunning sets and your favorite Disney characters all wrapped up into one show.
Watch as Disney’s “Frozen” comes to life on ice at the Wicomico Youth and Civic Center on Feb. 8-11.
“Disney On Ice: Frozen” brings together some of your favorite Disney characters. Hosted by Mickey and Minnie, the show features special guests such as Buzz, Woody, and other Disney Princesses, as well as the “Frozen” cast.
Join in on the adventure as Anna, Kristoff, Olaf and Sven work to find Elsa and save the kingdom from eternal winter. Help them as they battle through icy winds, snow storms and mystic trolls, and watch true love save the day.
Audience members can sing along to favorites like “Do You Want to Build a Snowman” and “Let it Go” while watching colorful performances on the ice.
“The costumes and set are so bright and fun,” said Vilma Lehtinen.
Lehtinen, who has been on tour with "Disney On Ice: Frozen" since September, said this has been her most exciting experience as a professional skater. Having started her skating career at the age of 5, Lehtinen says she never expected to be performing for Disney.
“When I was young, I was only focusing on competing,” said Lehtinen. “This is a whole different world.”
Lehtinen is part of a cast of more than 40 skaters who travel the country performing Disney classics on ice.
“We perform for a different audience every night. That’s my favorite part, I think,” said Lehtinen. “We get such a different reaction each time and it’s always fun to watch the little kids get so excited when they see Elsa.”
Children aren’t the only ones excited about the show — some parents seem to be even more thrilled.
“I grew up watching Disney movies,” said Kelly Kauffman, mother of two. “Seeing these shows up close is like a blast from the past for me. Plus, it’s nice to have something we as a family can really enjoy together.”
