Disney on Ice to skate into Glasgow

A host of colourful Disney characters are set to descend upon The SSE Hydro in Glasgow later this week when Disney on Ice’s 25th anniversary show skates into town.

The children’s show, entitled Silver Anniversary Celebration, honours the skating spectacular’s 25th anniversary and features scenes from some of Disney’s most well-known classics including The Lion King, The Little Mermaid, Peter Pan and Frozen.

The show follows Mickey and Minnie Mouse as they embark upon the ultimate sightseeing holiday with their friends, during which they visit London, the African Savannah, the depths of the sea and the wintery town of Arrendalle.

Producer Kenneth Feld, of Feld Entertainment, explained: “It’s an extraordinary show and a family vacation all rolled into one incredible night. You really get a sense you are travelling right alongside Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and their friends. We can’t wait for the UK audience to celebrate the Silver Anniversary of Disney on Ice with us.”

The show features a cast of over 50 internationally-renowned professional skaters and a score comprising countless Disney classics including Under the Sea from The Little Mermaid, I Just Can’t Wait To Be King from The Lion King, You Can Fly from Peter Pan and Let It Go from Frozen.

Felt Entertainment, the production team behind the tour, also recently announced plans to bring Marvel Universe Live to Scotland next year. The live action show features more than 25 superheroes and villains (including Spider Man, The Hulk, Wolverine and Captain America) doing high-energy stunts, world-class motorcycle tricks and aerial manoeuvres.  Having already toured the USA, the show has since been hailed as the most technically advanced live show in the world.

Disney on Ice, The SSE Hydro, Exhibition Way, Glasgow, Thursday 28 April – Sunday 1 May, 11am, 3pm and 7pm, from £17.60, 0844 395 4000.
