There’s always a sense of excitement and anticipation when you walk into a theater, but even seasoned Cirque du Soleil artists were surprised by the overwhelming emotion they felt stepping back inside the iconic white tent at Disney Springs.
“Seeing everyone again, it’s like coming home. It’s like being with family. I really can’t wait to put this show together for everyone to see,” said David Rimmer, who is one of the high-flying teeterboard artists in the show.
Drawn to Life presented by Cirque du Soleil & Disney is scheduled to open Nov. 18. A new collaboration between Cirque du Soleil, Walt Disney Animation Studios and Walt Disney Imagineering, this family-friendly show will be an exciting new addition to the entertainment lineup at Disney Springs and another incredible way to celebrate the Walt Disney World Resort 50th Anniversary.
For now, costumes and makeup are put away as artists focus on regaining skills and working together as a team.
The story of Drawn to Life brings timeless Disney Animation classics and characters to life in an unforgettable way through the use of innovative design, acrobatic performances, dazzling choreography, original music, brand-new animation lovingly created by Disney Animation artists, and some extra touches of Disney magic.
