Disney on Ice Presents #Frozen Coming to #Baltimore in October

5/23/14

Feld Entertainment, Inc., Brings the #1 Animated Movie of All 
Time to Life with Disney On Ice presents Frozen in Baltimore
 
Tickets On Sale Now for Touring Skating Spectacular
Featuring Dynamic Sisters Anna and Elsa, Appearing for the First Time in a Live Production
Feld Entertainment

No compensation was received for this post.  I am a Feld Family Ambassador, and in exchange for my time and efforts in attending shows and reporting my opinion within this blog, as well as keeping you advised of the latest discount offers,  Feld Entertainment has provided me with complimentary tickets to Feld shows and opportunities to attend private Feld pre-Show events.  The opinions and views are my own.

Attention Disney Frozen Fans!  Feld Entertainment, Inc., the worldwide leader in producing live touring family entertainment, announced that its 34th Disney On Ice spectacular will bring the Academy Award® winning and number one animated feature film of all time, Disney’s Frozen, to life.   

We've been to Disney on Ice presents Let's Celebrate! and absolutely loved it.  There's no doubt that my little Frozen fan is going to be head-over-heels about this latest ice show!  And I'm sure your kids will too!

Disney On Ice presents Frozen will be at Baltimore from October 29th to November 2nd for 9 performances at the Baltimore Arena; tickets are on sale now!

The Academy Award® winning tale will be told live for the first time in this production, capturing the dynamic between two royal sisters, Anna and Elsa.  Anna, a girl with an extraordinary heart, embarks on an epic journey to find her sister, the magical Elsa, who is determined to remain secluded as she finally feels free to test the limits of her powers.    Rugged mountain man Kristoff, his loyal reindeer Sven, the lovable and hilarious snowman Olaf and the mystical trolls help Anna along the way in this story about love conquering fear.  Audiences will get to sing along with such musical masterpieces as “Let it Go,” “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” and “Fixer Upper.”

“In our more than 30 years of producing Disney On Ice shows, Feld Entertainment has been waiting for a film like this,” says producer Nicole Feld.  “While it might seem obvious that Frozen is well suited for the ice, this Disney On Ice production will touch audiences emotionally through innovative show elements and world-class skating.”

Frozen directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee add, “Seeing audiences around the world embrace Frozen has been the experience of a lifetime.  And to now have the chance to consult with the talented team at Feld Entertainment and watch their creation come to life on ice, is thrilling.”




In Disney On Ice presents Frozen, Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse take the audience through the magical story based in Arendelle, with special appearances by beloved Disney princesses and favorite characters from Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story and Finding Nemo and Disney’s The Lion King, who come together to prove that true love is the greatest power of all.  

Director Patty Vincent says, “Our goal is to showcase these heartwarming characters in a way that allows the audience to cheer and sing along throughout this emotional journey.”

To create a completely immersive experience for the audience, the set design will encompass the space from the ice surface up through the air, drawing everyone into the story and closer to the characters. Families will feel that they are trekking up to the North Mountains with Anna, Kristoff and Sven, and they will tangibly experience the storm inside Elsa.  Elsa’s magic will be enhanced by state-of-the art special effects while her emotions will be conveyed through powerful skating. 

Location:


Baltimore Arena, 201 W Baltimore St, Baltimore, MD 21201

Strawberry Shortcake Fun Under the Sun now on DVD @fheinsiders #sponsored

I received a copy of Strawberry Shortcake Fun Under the Sun as a Fox Home Insider. No other compensation was received and all opinions are my own.
 Fox Home Entertainment, kids cartoons


Strawberry Shortcake: Fun Under the Sun is now available on DVD {released May 13}.  My daughter was really excited to receive this in the mail.  She loves watching Strawberry Shortcake!   This DVD was particularly timely because we are looking forward to fun summer weather, bathing suits, and time in the pool.

One of the great aspects of this series is that the music is upbeat and fun and there are good lessons written into the story line.  Themes include friendship, telling the truth, and learning to work together.  There are 71 minutes of family-friendly entertainment for everyone to enjoy, including a music video that will get your kids dancing.  The Attic baby also loves the printable coloring pages!  And I love that she is enjoying one of my favorites from childhood.


Synopsis:

Join Strawberry Shortcake and her berry best pals on some sweet sunshine adventures! Blueberry makes a berry big blunder when she overhears Strawberry and thinks her friend is taking all the pals on a tropical vacation. After Blueberry makes some very funny attempts to make things right, Orange Blossom tries to build the girls their own fabulous resort. When they all work together to make it Berry Bitty City-style, it’s perfect...so perfect, in fact, that TV host Mavis Maraschino decides to do a segment on Cherry Jam right then and there! Will the girls ever get the Fun Under the Sun they’ve been dreaming of?
 

Special Features
      “It’s A Beautiful Lovely Wonderful Day” Music Video  
       Printable Coloring Pages
