Disney Live! presents Mickey’s Magic Show features the special magic from legendary Disney films, performed right before the audience’s eyes: 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.
The Master Magician himself – Mickey Mouse – performs astonishing illusions along with Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother, Alice in Wonderland’s Mad Hatter, and professional illusionist Michael Barron. The magic is complimented by appearances from Disney princesses Belle and Snow White and Mickey’s pals from Toontown — Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy.
Kenneth Feld, producer of the Disney Live! shows and of the most successful live illusion show of all time, Siegfried & Roy, says:
“This one-of-a-kind show gives parents and children the power to see magic everywhere. We take them on an inspirational journey with the Disney characters where they learn to find the magic within and all around them. At the same time, families will see world class illusions that will truly take their breath away.”
Illusion Designer Jim Steinmeyer, who has worked with leading magicians David Copperfield, Lance Burton and Siegfried & Roy, brings more than 20 years of world-class experience to the illusions in the show, which include a dynamic sawing-in-half duet and an awe-inspiring levitation of Minnie set to blacklight.
“In every show we do, we try to exceed audiences’ expectations. With the sheer magnitude of the illusions, we are able to take the audience to a place far beyond what they would ever imagine. From the moment the magic begins on stage, audiences will be in for a visual surprise as they take part in a unique Disney experience.”
Mickey's Magic Show is at the Echo Arena, Liverpool from 29 August - 2 September.
