In November 2015, the endearing characters and captivating music of the animated film â€œTangledâ€ will enchant audiences once again, this time as an original stage show spectacular at sea aboard the Disney Magicâ€”the first time the beloved Disney tale has been adapted for the stage. â€œTangled: The Musicalâ€ will immerse audiences in Rapunzelâ€™s fairytale world through lavish production numbers and spellbinding music. Three new songs created exclusively for this show by Academy Award-winning composer Alan Menken and Grammy Award-winning lyricist Glenn Slater will bring the story to life onstage. The show will stay true to the storyline from the hit feature filmâ€”with a few special twists to create a live staged productionâ€”featuring favorite characters like Rapunzel, Flynn Rider, the villainous Mother Gothel and Maximus the police horse. The story follows the thrilling adventure of Rapunzel as she escapes the confines of her tower and the clutches of Mother Gothel, who wishes to shield the secret of Rapunzelâ€™s magical golden tresses and royal roots. Rapunzel strikes up an unlikely friendship with the suave, crown-stealing bandit Flynn Rider, and together they face ruffians, thugs and a budding romance on a hair-raising journey filled with classic Disney playfulness and whimsy that will delight audiences of all ages. New Songs Debuting with Film Favorites Acclaimed composer Alan Menken (â€œThe Little Mermaid,â€ â€œBeauty and the Beastâ€) and lyricist Glenn Slater, the prolific pair behind the original soundtrack for â€œTangled,â€ teamed up again to adapt the score and story for the stage. Complementing the score from the film, three new songs weave a delightful combination of narrative, humor and theatrics into the performance. In addition to new melodies, audiences will enjoy live performances of favorite songs from the movie, including â€œWhen Will My Life Begin,â€ â€œMother Knows Best,â€ â€œI Have a Dreamâ€ and the Grammy Award-winning ballad, â€œI See the Light.â€ Adapting â€œTangledâ€ from Screen to Stage Elaborate costumes, groundbreaking puppetry and stunning set designs transform the 977-seat Walt Disney Theatre into a fanciful Bavarian kingdom, immersing audiences in Rapunzelâ€™s world and making them feel a part of her story. Disney assembled an all-star creative team to develop this extravagant production, with director Gordon Greenberg and choreographer Connor Gallagher joining Menken, Slater and a bevy of top-notch theatrical talent. Master puppet designer Michael Curry, whose extraordinary creations are featured in Disneyâ€™s Tony Award-winning musical â€œThe Lion Kingâ€ on Broadway, is breeding a brand-new pedigree of puppetry in Maximus, the rambunctious police horse whose exaggerated demeanor becomes even more hilarious with the addition of the whinnying puppet performer within. This cleverly constructed character is sure to be the â€œmaneâ€ attraction of every scene he steals. Dazzling costumes created by Tony Award-winning designer Paloma Young will bring the flair and vibrancy of the animated world to life onstage in â€œTangled: The Musical.â€ The townspeopleâ€™s bright hues and Rapunzelâ€™s feminine florals are perfectly balanced by the bristly browns of the rugged thugs and royal regalia of the kingdom officials, creating a sensational fusion of colors, patterns and textures. Remarkable set designs by scenic designer Bradley Kaye (Disneyâ€™s â€œAladdinâ€”A Musical Spectacularâ€) will transport audiences to storybook locales that include Rapunzelâ€™s tower home, the outlandish Snuggly Duckling tavern, a brightly adorned kingdom town and the resplendent lakeside setting of the iconic floating lanterns scene from the film. New Show Joining Line Up of Exclusive Stage Productions â€œTangled: The Musicalâ€ complements the line-up of Disney Cruise Line-exclusive live entertainment performed every voyage aboard the Disney Magic, joining â€œTwice Charmed: An Original Twist on the Cinderella Storyâ€ and â€œDisney Dreamsâ€¦ An Enchanted Classic,â€ which will feature a new segment from the blockbuster animated hit â€œFrozenâ€ beginning in summer 2015. â€œTangled: The Musicalâ€ will premiere during the Nov. 11 four-night Bahamian sailing aboard the Disney Magic. The Disney Magic will sail four-night Bahamas and five-night Western Caribbean cruises from Miami beginning Sept. 30 through the new year.
