Third And Final Show Added Due To Overwhelming Demand ‘Disney’s The Little Mermaid Live In Concert’

Sara Bareilles And Rebel Wilson Lead All-Star Cast In Disney's The Little Mermaid Live In Concert At The Hollywood Bowl Along John Stamos and others!

Sara Bareilles And Rebel Wilson Lead All-Star Cast In Disney’s The Little Mermaid Live In Concert At The Hollywood Bowl Along John Stamos and others!

Fans of Disney’s animated classic, DISNEY’S THE LITTLE MERMAID, will now have another chance to see ‘DISNEY’S THE LITTLE MERMAID LIVE IN CONCERT’ at the Hollywood Bowl on Monday, June 6.  The first two nights of this concert event sold out within hours when it was announced that an all-star cast of performers would be singing the songs from the Oscar® and Grammy®-winning score as the film plays on the Bowl’s movie screen accompanied by a full, live orchestra. Tickets for the third and final concert go on sale at ticketmaster.com at 10:00am Pacific on Wednesday, April 27.

For this performance, Disney Legend JODI BENSON will be singing in the role of Ariel.  She joins REBEL WILSON (“Pitch Perfect 1 & 2” and “How To Be Single”) as Ursula and the singing cast which includes JOHN STAMOS (“Grandfathered”) as Chef Louis, TITUSS BURGESS (“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”) as Sebastian (whom he originally played on Broadway in DISNEY’S THE LITTLE MERMAID), NORM LEWIS (“Porgy and Bess” and “Scandal”) as King Triton (whom he also originally played on Broadway in DISNEY’S THE LITTLE MERMAID), DARREN CRISS (“Glee”) as Prince Eric and JOSHUA COLLEY (Broadway’s “A Bronx Tale: The Musical”) as Flounder.

For this performance only, the Opening Guest Stars will include original Disney animation voice talents SUSAN EGAN, who was Meg in the Disney animated feature film HERCULES as well as the first Belle on Broadway in DISNEY’S BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, and BRAD KANE who was the singing voice of ALADDIN in Disney’s animated feature film.

This will be a special family event at the Hollywood Bowl filled with an ocean of treats including a fireworks spectacular, costume contest, and other surprises.

“I’m so thrilled and incredibly blessed to be invited once again to sing at the Hollywood Bowl—and this time as my beloved Ariel during this unique commemoration of our movie, ‘The Little Mermaid,'” said Jodi Benson. “It’s such a special honor to celebrate my 30th anniversary with the Walt Disney Company by standing on the Hollywood Bowl stage and singing the beautiful music of the brilliant Howard Ashman and Alan Menken. I am truly honored and eternally grateful to Howard and Alan and our directors, Ron Clements and John Musker, for allowing me to bring Ariel to life and to be ‘part of your world’ for all of these many amazing years.”

“I’m so excited to be singing live at the Hollywood Bowl with an amazing cast of singers,” said Rebel Wilson. “I’ve never been to the Hollywood Bowl so for my first time there, to actually be invited to sing, is such an incredible honor. THE LITTLE MERMAID is one of my absolute favorite movies. Alan Menken is a complete genius and I am really looking forward to meeting him at rehearsals. I am beyond a fan-girl. I hope to do the amazing Pat Carroll [the original animated singing voice] proud performing Ursula’s song. It’s just such a delicious role that I’ve always wanted to play. This will be such a great event for the whole family to attend.”

As DISNEY’S THE LITTLE MERMAID plays on the Hollywood Bowl’s movie screen, a 71-piece orchestra and 12-person choir will be performing the film’s Oscar-winning score and songs live to film.

Beloved musical numbers from DISNEY’S THE LITTLE MERMAID including “Under the Sea,” “Kiss the Girl,” “Poor Unfortunate Souls” and “Part of Your World” will be performed live on stage by the all-star cast, accompanied by orchestra. Also in store will be performances of a few of the songs from the Tony®-nominated Broadway adaptation of DISNEY’S THE LITTLE MERMAID with music by Alan Menken and lyrics by Glenn Slater. Music Supervisors for the show are Grammy®-nominees JULIA MICHELS & JULIANNE JORDAN (“Pitch Perfect 1 & 2”).

The concept of performing an animated musical live to film was embraced enthusiastically last Halloween by sold-out crowds with DISNEY’S TIM BURTON’S THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS LIVE IN CONCERT AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL. The producing team has reunited to present DISNEY’S THE LITTLE MERMAID LIVE IN CONCERT AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL. The producers are Andrew Hewitt & Bill Silva Presents, Laura Engel & Richard Kraft and Tim Fox & Alison Ahart Williams, in association with Disney Concerts. Concert creative direction is by Richard Kraft.

DISNEY’S THE LITTLE MERMAID LIVE IN CONCERT is produced under license by Disney Concerts, a division of ABC Inc. Disney Concerts currently licenses 14 different concert packages including, Fantasia, Pixar In Concert, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Alice In Wonderland, Frozen, Ratatouille, The Pirates of the Caribbean series (episodes I-IV), and Silly Symphonies, which last year accounted for approximately 325 performances in some of the world’s top venues including Lincoln Center, Royal Albert Hall, Sydney Opera House, Tokyo Forum and the Hollywood Bowl.

Doors will open at 6:30PM with a costume contest to follow, and the concert begins at 8:00PM.

Adventures by Disney Introduces New 2017 Itineraries

New 2017 Adventures by Disney Itineraries--New Rhine River Vacation

New 2017 Adventures by Disney Itineraries–New Rhine River Vacation

Adventures by Disney, a leader in guided group travel worldwide, recently revealed new itineraries for 2017, including an expansion of popular river cruising vacations with AmaWaterways, as well as enhancements to family journeys to China and Australia.

Sailing with AmaWaterways, the premier luxury river cruise line, Adventures by Disney river cruises offer a new way for families to experience the heart of Europe in a way that is active, immersive and easy. In addition to offering a second season of Danube River sailings, Adventures by Disney will expand offerings to include sailings along the Rhine River in 2017. The new Rhine River itinerary gives adventurous travelers the opportunity to experience the beauty of four countries – France, Switzerland, Germany and the Netherlands.

Combining the award-winning service and luxury of AmaWaterways with the proven family travel expertise of Adventures by Disney, these river cruise sailings offer a vacation experience that is all-inclusive and hassle-free. Designed with guests of all ages in mind, travelers can customize their trip to fit their family’s needs by choosing from a variety of activity options offered at ports along the Rhine River and onboard each day.

“Last year, river cruising itineraries on the Danube River sold out rapidly, proving that families are eager to enjoy this immersive and luxurious new way to travel through Europe with Adventures by Disney,” said Ken Potrock, senior vice president of Adventures by Disney. “For 2017 we dreamt even bigger, expanding our offerings to include not only the already popular Danube sailings, but also exciting new experiences along the Rhine River. Here we can make unforgettable vacation memories a reality for even more travelers by offering family river cruise sailings that are effortless, personalized and exhilarating.”

Guests will sail on the Rhine River aboard the all-new, 170-passenger AmaKristina, a river cruise ship being custom built by AmaWaterways with families in mind. Family-friendly design elements include sets of connecting staterooms and suites, some of which accommodate three- and four-person families, and other details that lend themselves to luxury family vacations. Adventures by Disney has also worked closely with AmaWaterways to reimagine shipboard spaces and activities, offering unique programming for kids, teens and adults.

New Adventures Coming in 2017

  • Savor unique local dining, including Swiss fondue, a French macaron cooking class, German chocolate tasting and more.

A post-cruise land package is also available in Amsterdam at the conclusion of the Rhine sailings, offering a visit to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Kinderdijk and a private farewell dinner.

“AmaWaterways is ecstatic to continue working with Adventures by Disney, further expanding the options for family travelers seeking a unique way to explore Europe,” said Kristin Karst, co-owner and executive vice president of AmaWaterways. “A Rhine River cruise with Adventures by Disney, aboard the beautiful AmaKristina, will offer families an immersive, unforgettable experience.  They will have the chance to witness firsthand the beauty, history and culture of the region’s most breathtaking destinations, while creating memories that will last a lifetime!”

Enhanced Itineraries to Visit Shanghai Disney Resort in China, Gold Coast in Australia

New United States Vacations Allow Travelers to Discover America

The new 2017 itineraries join an existing lineup of more than 35 other guided group vacations to destinations on six continents, including three recently announced vacations to the diverse United States locales of Central Florida, Montana, and Washington, D.C. & Philadelphia. Debuting in summer 2016, each of these weeklong trips is filled with activities unique to the destinations. In Central Florida, families will enjoy unprecedented backstage access and VIP experiences at Walt Disney World Resort, airboat through Florida marshlands and thrill to a visit to the “Space Coast.” Montana offers glamorous camping, or “glamping,” near Yellowstone National Park and a stay at a dude ranch in Big Sky. And American history comes alive during a visit to the nation’s capital, and the United States’ first capital city.

Whether travelers are setting sail in Europe, exploring exotic destinations in far-off lands or savoring the majesty of America’s national parks, Adventures by Disney offers exceptional service and hands-on, active experiences that appeal to travelers of all ages.

Bookings for all 2017 vacations open on April 22, 2016. For more details and to book reservations, call 1-800-543-0865 or contact a travel agent.
