Disney Live! Mickey's Magic Show

De makers van Disney On Ice presenteren Disney Live! Mickey’s Magic Show, een show die Disney Magie een nieuwe inhoud geeft! Een unieke combinatie: Disney characters en professionele illusionisten geven samen een live show die kinderen van alle leeftijden zal betoveren.

Bibbidi-bobbidi-Boo! Laat je betoveren!
Meestergoochelaar Mickey Mouse laat fantastische illusies zien, samen met Assepoesters petemoei, de Gekke Hoedenmaker uit Alice in Wonderland en de professionele illusionisten Brad Ross en Fred Moore. De magie is compleet met de Disney prinsessen Belle en Sneeuwwitje. En natuurlijk mogen ook Goofy, Donald Duck en Katrien niet ontbreken.
Zie hoe de vodden van Assepoester omgetoverd worden in een prachtige baljurk, hoe Prinses Jasmine op wonderbaarlijke wijze gaat zweven en hoe de betoverde bezems uit Fantasia Minnie van haar voeten vegen.

De beroemde illusie-designer Jim Steinmeyer heeft gewerkt met wereldberoemde illusionisten als David Copperfield en Siegfrid & Roy. Al deze ervaring heeft hij meegenomen naar deze show. En dat is te zien aan de spectaculaire en verbazingwekkende acts.

Magisch plezier voor de hele familie
Kinderen zijn niet zomaar publiek. Als echte tovenaarsleerlingen krijgen zij de kans om onderdeel van de show te worden.

Geniet van de speciale Disney Magie met heel veel Disney vrienden, originele Disney muziek, betoverende kostuums en fantastisch illusionisme. Natuurlijk is de hele show Nederlands gesproken


Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy and Daisy Duck come together with world-class magicians live on stage. The interactive theatrical event features special moments from legendary Disney films. You’ll see Cinderella’s rags turn into a beautiful ball gown in a split second, Aladdin’s Princess Jasmine levitates into the air and the enchanted dancing brooms in Fantasia help sweep Minnie off her feet. Then watch, as the Master Magician himself - Mickey Mouse - performs astonishing illusions and makes your favourite Disney Princesses: Ariel, Belle, Cinderella, and Snow White appear out of thin air. There’s a helping hand for Mickey by Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother, Alice in Wonderland’s Mad Hatter and two of Mickey’s illusionist Pals, Brad Ross and Alex Gonzalez. NIA

Just watching Disney’s theme park parades and productions and best movies can often seem like pure magic. And the idea of combining Disney themes with illusion seems like a natural. While “Disney Live! presents Mickey's Magic Show,” a touring show that combines Disney and magic, is a very professional production, somehow, the combination of Disney and illusion falls somewhat short of its synergistic potential.

Great Illusions and Cast

The production features excellent illusion that are well presented. As one would expect, there are dancers, musical numbers, excellent lighting and great props and sets. It’s a professional, high-level production that lives up to standards of Disney and the art of magic.

The show has been clearly designed towards younger children with short attention spans. The humans, Brad (Brad Ross) and Benny (Alex Gonzales), tend towards the zany, wacky and over-the-top personas of Saturday morning television hosts. If you don’t have young kids, these energetic performances can become a bit irritating. I recommend the show to kids ages six through ten. At the morning show that I attended, there was a crowd filled with restless, young children-those under five.

Disney Magic

While the combination of Disney and illusions seems a natural, many illusions fall rather flat. The illusions are well designed, lit and executed, but when Cinderella quickly changes into her ball gown, or Jasmine levitates, it’s seemingly no big deal. The theatrical presentation of magic in the context of these characters is seemingly what they already do. And it’s easy to just go along and see something that should be amazing, but just view the feat as one would in a movie.

The show features the usual cast of Disney characters: Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy, as well as Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland, Jasmine, Belle and Snow White. A running theme is Benny’s attempt to learn and perform magic. As Minnie says to Benny, “Never give up...everyone has magic inside of them.” And as you would expect--this is a Disney production--Benny does rise to the task.

Magic in the Air

Interestingly, the first half of the show features Disney set pieces and songs and creative adaptations of classic illusions, while the second half, after intermission, features more sequences where the illusionists competently perform stage standards such as linking rings, sawing in half and metamorphosis.
