A host of Disney and stage veterans will take the stage in Anaheim, California, as part of a concert at D23 Expo 2019. Disney on Broadway: A 25th Anniversary Celebration, hosted by Tony nominee Gavin Lee (Mary Poppins), will take place August 24 in Hall D23.
The roster includes Heidi Blickenstaff (Disney’s Freaky Friday, The Little Mermaid), Ashley Brown (Mary Poppins, Beauty and the Beast), Kissy Simmons (The Lion King), Josh Strickland (Tarzan), and Alton Fitzgerald White (The Lion King).
Backed by a six-piece band led by Jim Abbott, the group will celebrate Disney Theatrical Productions’ catalog of Broadway musicals, from 1994’s Beauty and the Beast to the latest: Frozen, which continues its run at the St. James Theatre.
Also at the Expo will be the premiere of a new virtual reality experience, allowing participants to take center stage (digitally) in numbers from Disney’s three current Broadway titles: Aladdin, Frozen, and The Lion King.
