Veterans of the Great White Way will take to the high seas with Mickey and Friends for special “Stars Set Sail” shows on select 2018 Disney Cruise Line sailings.
Guests aboard select Disney Magic, Disney Wonder and Disney Fantasy sailings can enjoy the return of Stars Set Sail events this year. This live concert series presented by Disney Theatrical Productions brings the stars of Disney’s Broadway and international shows to the Walt Disney Theatre as Broadway performers join cruisers for an evening onstage.
The 2018 program features Alton Fitzgerald White, who starred in “The Lion King” for a record-breaking 4,308 performances as the longest-running Mufasa on Broadway, and Jonathan Freeman, who both voiced the evil vizier Jafar in the original animated film “Aladdin,” and reprises the role on in the current Broadway show. Other names on the roster include Steve Blanchard, the longest-running Beast in “Beauty and the Beast” on Broadway, and Kara Lindsay, star of the original cast of “Newsies” on Broadway and the “Newsies” film.
Every “Stars Set Sail” voyage features a performance by the headliner, and may also include meet-and-greets with the stars during exclusive Q&A sessions, plus adults-only shows in the evening and theater classes for teens and tweens.
