(Mass Appeal) – Disney On Ice has skated into Springfield’s MassMutual Center for shows running through Sunday. Performer TJ Kehoe gives us a preview and shares what it’s like to be part of the performance.
Tickets for performances at the MassMutual Center are available at the MassMutual Center Box Office, at MassMutualCenter.com, or by calling 855-278-4667.
Disney on Ice presents Worlds of Enchantment, Feld Entertainment’s action-packed ice spectacular featuring four fun-filled Disney stories. Worlds of Enchantment showcases beloved characters from Disney and Pixar Cars, The Little Mermaid, and Disney and Pixar Toy Story 3, along with Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy. Joining these cherished characters are the stars of Disney’s Frozen.
Audiences will enter the fantastical world of Arendelle with royal sisters Anna and Elsa from the Academy Award® winning and number one animated feature film of all time, Disney’s Frozen. Anna, a girl with an extraordinary heart, embarks on an epic journey with the hilarious snowman Olaf and rugged mountain-man Kristoff to find her sister, the magical Elsa, whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter.
In Radiator Springs, life-size Disney and Pixar Cars characters – Lightning McQueen, Tow Mater and the crew – take their high-octane personalities to the ice. Featuring state-of-the-art, custom animatronics, their eyes and mouths move with every twist and turn on the frozen highway. Mater has amusing antics in store as the Cars characters rock the ice with jumps, spins and freewheeling fun.
