Preview: Disney on Ice skates into CONSOL Center
Disney on Ice: Princesses and Heroes will skate into CONSOL Energy Center March 4-8 for nine magical shows.
Disney on Ice has become a Pittsburgh spring staple, bringing our most beloved Disney tales to life including their most recent megahit, Frozen.
This year’s show will feature a bevy of Disney princesses. Watch Ariel struggle to overcome Ursula’s spell in hopes of reclaiming her true love, Eric. Prince Phillip will race time to battle everyone’s favorite purple dragon, Maleficent, and awaken his Sleeping Beauty. In addition to these iconic characters, the show will also feature Aladdin‘s Jasmine and Aladdin, Frozen‘s Elsa, Anna and Olaf, Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast‘s Belle, Snow White, Rapunzel, and Tiana from The Princess and the Frog.
Little ones and adults alike will be in awe of the amazing flips and tricks the cast will perform on thin metal blades. Every year, the leaps get higher and the tricks more fantastic. You won’t want to blink and risk missing even a millisecond of the action.
As in recent years, the March production will feature characters from both contemporary and classic Disney films. With such a large and varied cast, you’re certain to see one of your favorite cast members come to life on the ice.
Disney on Ice is a magical experience for all ages but, for kids, it’s like taking a trip to Disney without having to leave Pittsburgh.
Every year the skaters’ beautiful costumes grow even more spectacular. Though their outfits are modified to optimize safety, you’ll be left wondering how these talented performers can still skate with such grace and precision in their elaborate costumes.
