Today, Disney Cruise Line announced that in November 2015, the endearing characters and captivating music of the animated film Tangled will enchant audiences once again, this time as an original stage show spectacular at sea aboard the Disney Magic. This is the first time the beloved Disney tale has been adapted for the stage.
The show will stay true to the storyline from the hit feature film—with a few special twists to create a live staged production—featuring favorite characters like Rapunzel, Flynn Rider, the villainous Mother Gothel and Maximus the police horse. Elaborate costumes, groundbreaking puppetry and stunning set designs transform the 977-seat Walt Disney Theatre into a fanciful Bavarian kingdom, immersing audiences in Rapunzel’s world and making them feel a part of her story.
The production includes a bevy of top-notch theatrical talent including acclaimed composer Alan Menken and lyricist Glenn Slater, the pair behind the original soundtrack for Tangled. Complementing the score from the film, three new songs weave a delightful combination of narrative, humor and theatrics into the performance. Additionally, the stage show will feature creations by master puppet designer Michael Curry, dazzling costumes by Tony Award®-winning designer Paloma Young and remarkable set designs by scenic designer Bradley Kaye.
Tangled: The Musical complements the lineup of Disney Cruise Line-exclusive live entertainment performed every voyage aboard the Disney Magic, joining Twice Charmed: An Original Twist on the Cinderella Story and Disney Dreams… An Enchanted Classic. The new show will premiere during the Nov. 11 four-night Bahamian sailing aboard the Disney Magic. To read more about Tangled: The Musical visit the Disney Parks Blog.
