Even my sister’s FIVE-MONTH-OLD loved the show. His big round eyes were glued to the rink, his little head bobbing to the fabulous Disney music. And doesn’t Disney have the most fabulous music? Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid….
I think The Little Mermaid was my favourite part of the show (at least of the first half). Because the skater who played Ariel was a-ma-zing. I felt like I was watching Olympic-class skating.
After taking us through 4 Princess stories — Aladdin, Snow White (Rascal LOVED the Dwarfs!)….
…Sleeping Beauty (the music…!), Mulan, and Beauty and the Beast — there was an intermission. The Monkey and I ran downstairs and she DANCED with me, as if she herself were a princess! Did I mention she was, of course, wearing her Disney princess dress? Complete with RUFFLES and PINK? Motherbumper and Her Bad Mother‘s kids (whom we bumped into on the way out) were ALSO wearing their dresses!
After the intermission, we were treated to the entire Cinderella story….
Bippity bobbity boo! And we loved it.
I got teary-eyed at one point in the show. Because this production was so wonderful for the kids: the settings, the costumes, the choreography, the skating were all pretty spectacular — and it was all FOR THE KIDS. Fahklempt! And I got teary-eyed because the show succeeded in bringing ME back to my own childhood, and my dreams and belief in magic.
