Disney On Ice: Rockin’ Ever After Playing the Dunkin’ Donuts Center Providence, Now Through the Sunday, September 16th (Review)


Mickey and Minnie have searched the globe for the hippest and hottest acts to perform in the most sensational talent showcase to rock the ice, Disney On Ice presents Rockin' Ever After. This new ice spectacular will launch a North American tour performing in more than 70 cities, including Rhode Island on September 12th-16th.

In a new twist on fairytale fun, favorite Disney characters compete to be the next superstar in comical segments leading up to the tales of show stopping princesses – Ariel, Rapunzel, Belle, and Merida from Disney•Pixar's BRAVE in her ice debut! 

"The most exciting part of bringing a fearless and independent character like Merida to the ice for the first time is knowing that she has a powerful and inspiring message to deliver about finding the courage to determine one's own fate," says Producer Nicole Feld. "We think her story translates well to the ice and will really resonate with today's audience."

Produced by Feld Entertainment, Rockin' Ever After remixes the stories of Disney's most adventurous heroines with upbeat music and energetic choreography that will have audiences singing, dancing and cheering for their beloved Disney idols. Mickey and Minnie encounter the most talented performers in the land with an all-star lineup that includes Sebastian and the Daughters of Triton from The Little Mermaid, the rowdy pub thugs from Tangled and the spunky enchanted servants from Beauty and the Beast. The journey continues to the Scottish highlands where audiences will be captivated and star struck by Merida, as an exhilarating archery contest ensues for the right to marry the fiery redhead. 

"Our challenge in developing Rockin' Ever After was figuring out how to highlight moments from these beloved stories in a way that reflects the type of entertainment that families value today," says Producer Juliette Feld. "By pulling elements from the talent show trend on contemporary television, we developed a truly unique way to lead into each fairytale."

My Thoughts:

We got to attend the opening night show last night and had a blast.  This was the first time Arabella came with us, and at only 10 months old she had a blast.  She was clapping and smiling, along with Savannah as each of the popular Disney characters took to the ice.  Even though it was a school night, the event had a big turnout, as there were only a scattering of empty seats -- letting me know that other New England residents were excited about seeing this new show from Disney on Ice.

Since the last Disney on Ice that we attended at the beginning of the year, Savannah has since become a huge fan of Mickey Mouse, thanks to the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse on television.  So, as we walked into the arena and she was greeted with Mickey and friends souveniors, you can only imagine how excited she got.  Even though my husband and I agreed that she was set on toys, Daddy ended up picking up a small Mickey Mouse plush toy for the girls to play with during intermission. :-)

This show was the first time we saw from the recent hit Disney movie, Brave, take to the ice.  And, when she and other characters did, the crowd went crazy.  I watched both my daughters, as well as other families sitting around us, when this act started.  Everyone's eyes were glued to the ice, and when each portion of the act ended, everyone clapped and cheered.

Besides the Brave act, our family especially enjoyed watching Rapunzel and Ariel, the Little Mermaid skate.  I think the horse from the Rapunzel act stole the show, as cameras were flashing light crazy when the horse trotted out onto the ice.  It was neat to see this, and Savannah couldn't stop tugging at our sleeves, just to point on the horse.  And when Mickey and his gang (minus Daisy and Pluto) appeared on the ice, Savannah was in heaven.  She kept calling out to them, and was star shocked when Mickey and Goofy waved to her.  :-)

What a great time we had, even if it meant the girls went to bed later than usual.  I always love Disney on Ice shows, as they can be enjoyed by both young and old.  Even my husband, who usually isn't a fan of ice shows gets into it. :-)

Disney on Ice: Rockin' Ever After runs through Sunday at the Dunkin Donuts Center in Providence, RI.  So, if you are looking for a fun family activity to do together this weekend, why not head on over to the DD Center and pick up tickets and enjoy the show.  We ended up picking up tickets for the Sunday afternoon show, to go again with a few of Savannah's friends.
