Favorite Playhouse Disney Pals Take Center Stage in Playhouse Disney Live!
Characters from Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Little Einsteins, My Friends Tigger & Pooh and Handy Manny share the stage for the first time in a new live touring production
For the first time, characters from four popular Playhouse Disney TV shows appear together live on stage for an unforgettable musical celebration. Produced by Feld Entertainment, Playhouse Disney Live! brings audiences into the colorful worlds of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Little Einsteins, My Friends Tigger & Pooh and Handy Manny.
Mickey's hosting a musical party at the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and everyone's invited! The story unfolds as the Playhouse Disney Postess delivers party invitations to all of Mickey's Playhouse Disney pals. The audience follows along as the pals venture off to find music in the Hundred Acre Woods, Sheetrock Hills and all over the world.
"We have a very demanding audience - kids - and we want to ensure we've exceeded their expectations for what could serve as their first theatrical experience," says Producer Kenneth Feld. "Playhouse Disney Live! brings characters that children love from their favorite Playhouse Disney TV shows to the stage in an exciting musical production. They will learn that music can be found everywhere as they sing and dance to music we've brought from all around the world."
Producer Alana Feld adds, "Throughout Playhouse Disney Live! we have placed interactive moments that children and parents alike will enjoy. Kids will pat, pat, pat with the Little Einsteins and even be called on stage to dance to the 'Hot Dog!' song, all while learning that everyone in the world can make music and it brings the world together."
The Little Einsteins, along with trusty Rocket, take audiences around the globe on a musical fieldtrip as they fly to China, India, Russia, Egypt, Italy, Japan, Spain and Africa to discover different music cultures. "It is so rewarding to see the children's excitement when they are asked to pat along with the Einsteins to power up Rocket," says Director Jay Smith. "And they even get to see them fly in Rocket across stage and onto our rear projection screen!"
Winnie the Pooh, Tigger and their friend Darby call upon the kids to help solve the mystery of their missing music. Smith adds, "When we go into the Hundred Acre Woods, we have fun with the audience making nature songs with birds and frogs and bees that appear on the screen buzzing, tweeting and ribbiting! Audiences are bound to have a blast making music for Mickey's party using the many sounds of the forest."
Everyone boogies in Sheetrock Hills with Handy Manny and his talking handy-dandy tools as they use their special talents to make an upbeat song to share at Mickey's party. The citizens of Sheetrock Hills add to the rhythm using bricks, brooms and buckets. "Everyone works together to create a dynamic tumble and dance number to a 'stomp'-like beat. It is incredibly energetic and a lot of fun to watch! The audience is clapping and singing along the entire time," says Director Patty Vincent.
The party comes together at the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse where the audience helps Mickey out with the four magic words "Meeska Mooska Mickey Mouse" to enter. Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy make their own music for the party and decorate the clubhouse for Mickey's big musical bash. Mickey reminds his friends that music brings everyone together as all of the Playhouse Disney pals take the stage and share their special songs. Playhouse Disney Live! will give children a treasured musical experience they will never forget.
