Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC) look forward to welcoming the first Disney On Ice show featuring the much-loved sisters Anna and Elsa from the number one animated film of all time, Disney’s Frozen, when it arrives at the GE Oil & Gas Arena from 11th to 15th March 2015!

 

Get ready to enter a world of enchantment as Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse bring the most magical moments from across the Disney Kingdom to the UK in Disney On Ice presents Magical Ice Festival.

 

You may have noticed that the show has taken over the Tower at AECC – with the Disney Princesses on display from now until March!  Today we welcome princesses from Love Rara who are excited to be part of this!

 

In a new twist on fairytale fun, comical segments from everyone’s favourite Disney characters set the scene for the show-stopping on-ice stories of princesses Ariel, Rapunzel and Belle.

 

Plus, enjoy a special appearance by Anna and Elsa from the Academy Award® winning and number one animated feature film of all time, Disney’s Frozen! Audiences will journey up the North Mountains with the hilarious snowman Olaf, rugged mountain-man Kristoff and his loyal reindeer Sven as they help the sisters along the way in a story full of action, adventure, magic and unforgettable characters.

 

“In (our) more than 30 years of producing Disney On Ice shows, Feld Entertainment has been waiting for a film like Frozen, ” says producer Nicole Feld. “The most exciting part of bringing characters like Anna and Elsa to the ice for the first time is knowing that they have a powerful and inspiring message that resonates with audiences as the sisters discover the true meaning of love.”

 

Produced by Feld Entertainment, Magical Ice Festival is an enchanting mix of royalty, highlighting the stories of Disney’s most beloved heroines with energetic choreography that will have audiences singing, dancing and cheering their favourite Disney characters as they each embark on their own epic journeys. Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse guide fans through an enchanting wonderland where they encounter Sebastian and the Daughters of Triton from Disney’s The Little Mermaid, the rowdy pub thugs from Disney’s Tangled and the loyal enchanted servants from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast.

 

“By pulling together moments from classic Disney stories to the newest feature film sensation Frozen and combining them with elements of comedy and music, we developed a truly unique way to re-tell each fairytale, ” says Producer Juliette Feld.

 

Brian Horsburgh, AECC’s Managing Director commented, “the response to this show has already been tremendous, proving the Magical Ice Festival to be the one to see in 2015.  Disney productions are always very popular at the GE Oil & Gas Arena, and we’re sure the Magical Ice Festival will be a great family event, for all ages!”
