Fans of Disney musicals can enjoy an evening of their favorite songs sung by – who else – former Broadway Disney Princesses.
“Disney Princess – The Concert,” which features four theater veterans known for their Disney performances, is set to tour more than 80 cities, including two performances in Anaheim on Sunday, February 27. The show features over 30 Disney favorites, including “Let It Go,” “A Whole New World,” “Colors of the Wind,” and “A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes.”
The actresses will play as themselves, not costumed Disney characters. They are expected to share their personal stories of playing their characters on Broadway.
“Orange County has always been a community that supports the arts,” veteran Broadway performer Susan Egan, who originally starred as Belle in “Beauty and the Beast,” said in a statement. “As a graduate of the Orange County School of the Arts, I am especially grateful because this program put me on the path and gave me the tools to pursue my dreams. I’m thrilled now to both produce and star in “Disney Princess – The Concert” and to have the opportunity to perform in my hometown… and bring this joyful production to the community I love. most.
