DISNEY ON ICE: It's Magical

The day has finally arrived!

I don't have to answer Kate's question of "Are we going to watch Frozen today?" anymore.

Although to be honest, I have been milking this event for all it's worth.

"You want me to take you to watch Frozen? Then you had better..."

Works like a charm.

My 5 older kids remember the Disney on Ice shows we went to when they were younger, but this is the first for Kate, and it is also the very first time the Academy Award winning and Number One Animated Feature film of all time Frozen will be staged.
Queen Elsa made it snow
The buzz at the Singapore Indoor Stadium before the show started was palpable, and mini Elsas in all manner of fancy blue dresses were out in full force.

The colourful display of a whole gamut of Disney merchandise added to the festive atmosphere, and there were snacks on sale like huge buckets of popcorn and ice slushies in oh-so-irresistably-cute cups.

The older kids still remember Mrs Pots and Chip (cup) which I had bought for them probably 10 years ago at Disney On Ice.

It is so nice to be back at a show which brought back such fond memories of their childhood.
Disney Figurines
The show commenced promptly at 7pm, with Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy and an energetic team of skaters crisscrossing the square rink.

It put Kate right in the mood as she loves Mickey.

We were sponsored VIP tickets and being up close in the 6th row really helped to keep Kate attentive throughout the 2 hour show.

What surprised me was that the teens enjoyed the show as much as Kate.

#3 is in Dance CCA and she was intently watching the Mermaids perform so gracefully on their skates. Their choreography, costumes and energy levels gave her much to aspire towards.

The highlight of Rapunzel's segment was Maximus the horse, the brilliant floating lanterns and the skating thrills!
Tangled
During the 20 minute intermission, we had time to buy some popcorn and browse the merchandise.

Well into the second set, while the older girls were riveted by the storylines, twirls and leaps and elaborate sets, Kate started getting impatient and kept asking, "Where is Elsa?"
Beauty and the Beast
Finally, the cast of Frozen emerged!

It was probably what most of the little girls in the audience were waiting all evening for.

Kate, along with many of the little kids sang their hearts out to the familiar tunes.
Queen Elsa
Sophia Adams, a two-time competitor in the United States National Championship, who plays Queen Elsa, certainly did not disappoint.

While I still don't get why little girls all over are so in love with the Elsa character in Frozen, I must say that Adams, who is half-Koaren, cuts a very striking figure as Elsa and I really liked her stage presence.
Awesome!
After the show, I asked the teens what they enjoyed about the show. "Everything! It's all so pretty!"

Kate, not one to be left out of anything, chipped in, "I love Elsa. Mummy, I want to learn to ice-skate."

Ah, the success of any production is when it inspires, isn't it?
