Disney on Broadway is heading back to D23 Expo 2019 to present an exclusive concert, “Disney on Broadway: A 25th Anniversary Celebration” in Hall D23 on Saturday, Aug. 24 at 3:30 p.m.
The 75-minute concert will be hosted by Tony Award-nominee Gavin Lee (“Mary Poppins,” “Beauty and the Beast”), and will feature Heidi Blickenstaff (“Freaky Friday,” “The Little Mermaid”), Ashley Brown (“Mary Poppins,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “On the Record”), Kissy Simmons (“The Lion King”), Josh Strickland (“Tarzan”), and Alton Fitzgerald White (“The Lion King”).
The performers will be accompanied by a six-piece band, led by Jim Abbot, as they perform selections from Disney on Broadway productions like “Beauty and the Beast,” “The Lion King,” “Tarzan,” “Aida,” “The Little Mermaid,” “Newsies,” “Aladdin,” “Mary Poppins,” “Freaky Friday,” and “Frozen.”
If you want a chance to become a star yourself, head over to the D23 Expo show floor, as Disney on Broadway will debut a new virtual reality (VR) experience. This brand-new VR theatre will put you in center stage, right in the middle of the big production numbers from “Aladdin,” “Frozen,” and “The Lion King”.
