Disney on Ice’s ‘Treasure Trove’: A story for every generation

Disney On Ice’s “Treasure Trove” opens the Disney vault with tales spanning from the first animated film to the 50th

All are invited to hit the ice with Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald and Goofy as they embark on a treasure hunt for some of the most popular Disney films. Audiences will experience a medley of animated Disney movies including the very first fulllength animated film, “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” and the 50th Disney film, “Tangled.” With eight movies and more than 50 Disney characters featured, Feld Entertainment’s Disney On Ice “Treasure Trove” has a story for every generation.

The show also includes moments from classic Disney films like “Peter Pan,” “The Lion King,” “Alice in Wonderland,” “Aladdin” and “The Little Mermaid,” as well as recent favorite “Princess and the Frog.”

The first story in the production takes audiences to Wonderland, where Alice, the Mad Hatter, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, and the White Rabbit are “Painting the Roses Red” for the Queen of Hearts.

Audiences will then escape to Never Land with Peter Pan and hang out in the Lost Boys’ hideout, complete with a slide.

The costume designs for the show had to be unique to each story and accurately depict the characters seen in the animated films, but also allow for movement on the ice. “The production focuses on commemorating the legacy of Disney animation, so it’s important that the costumes are true representations of the animated characters,” said costume designer Dawna Oak, who also serves as Feld Entertainment’s director of costuming. The production concludes with a captivating parade of all nine Disney princesses, bringing the production to a final culmination of excitement and adventure.

The shows, scheduled through Jan. 4 at 7 p.m., and Jan. 5 and 6 at 11 a.m., 3 p.m. and 7 p.m., are at the Izod Center, East Rutherford.

Tickets are $25, $35, $60 and $85 and are available through Ticketmaster. Ages 2 and older must have a ticket. The doors open one hour before the show.

The shows at the Prudential Center, Newark are scheduled for Jan. 17 and 18 at 7:30 p.m.; Jan. 19 at 1 and 5 p.m.; Jan. 20 at 2 p.m.; and Jan. 21 at 1 p.m.
