Disney's pirates, princesses to bring adventure to Reading
Updated On: May 21 2013 01:26:34 PM CDT
The characters from two of Disney's most popular TV series will be appearing together on stage in Reading this fall.
Feld Entertainment, producers of Disney On Ice and Disney Live!, will present Disney Junior Live On Tour! Pirate and Princess Adventure at the Sovereign Center on Nov. 8.
The new stage show features characters from the hit Disney Channel shows Sofia the First and Jake and the Never Land Pirates.
"The Feld Entertainment mission of providing quality live entertainment experiences that the entire family enjoys starts with Disney Live! because it is often a young fan’s first theatrical experience," said producer Alana Feld. “Children everywhere are falling in love with Sofia and Jake, and we are thrilled to bring these popular Disney Junior characters to the stage for the first time ever."
In an original storyline, Mickey and Minnie will lead the audience on an exciting adventure that will have families rooting for their favorite pirate, Jake, and Disney's first little girl princess, Sofia, the show's producers said.
A special interactive pre-show will feature Doc McStuffins, the loveable 6-year-old doctor to toys and stuffed animals.
Audiences will then embark on a journey to the magical world of Enchancia, where Sofia, her step-siblings Amber and James, and the entire kingdom are preparing for the annual friendship festival. Sofia has the honor of delivering the perfect gift to her royal subjects at the celebration, and the one-and-only Cinderella visits the castle to help Sofia in her mission to find just the right present.
The excitement continues when families cast away to Never Land, where Jake and his Yo Ho pirate friends Izzy and Cubby are in a race against time to locate a mysterious treasure-filled volcano. Danger, thrills and adventure lurk around every turn when they battle Captain Hook for the ultimate prize. Peter Pan makes a special appearance, aiding the team in their heroic quest, and with the help of Tinker Bell’s pixie dust, Jake and his crew fly above the stage in their journey.
In 2012, "Doc McStuffins" and "Jake and the Never Land Pirates" ranked as cable TV's top 2 series for all kids ages 2-5.
Launching at the top in 2013, "Sofia the First" is cable TV's #1 series year to date among kids 2-5 and girls 2-5.
