Feld Entertainment Inc., producers of "Disney On Ice" and "Disney Live!," is bringing top performing cable TV series for preschoolers to the stage in "Disney Junior Live On Tour! Pirate & Princess Adventure" presented by Stonyfield YoKids Organic Yogurt. Featuring characters from the smash hits "Sofia the First" and "Jake and the Never Land Pirates," the 2014-15 tour of this production launched a 100-city national tour earlier this month. Tickets for the Sunday, Aug. 3, performances at the University at Buffalo Center for the Arts are now on sale.
"The Feld Entertainment mission of providing quality live entertainment experiences that the entire family enjoys starts with 'Disney Live!', because it is often a young fan's first theatrical experience," said producer Alana Feld. "Children everywhere have fallen in love with Sofia and Jake, and we are thrilled to bring these popular Disney Junior characters back to the stage."
In this original storyline, Mickey and Minnie lead the audience on an exciting adventure that will have families rooting for their favorite pirate, Jake, and Disney's first little girl princess, Sofia. "Disney Junior Live On Tour! Pirate & Princess Adventure" begins with a special interactive pre-show featuring the loveable 6-year-old doctor to toys and stuffed animals, Doc McStuffins. Children and their parents will sing the "I Feel Better" song, along with Doc as she provides tender love and care.
Audiences will then embark on a journey to the magical world of Enchancia, where Sofia, her stepsiblings, Amber and James, and the entire kingdom are preparing for the annual friendship festival. Sofia has the honor of delivering the perfect gift to her royal subjects at the celebration, and the one-and-only Cinderella, visits the castle to help Sofia in her mission to find the right present.
The excitement continues when families cast away to Never Land where Jake and his Yo Ho pirate friends, Izzy and Cubby, are in a race against time to locate a mysterious treasure-filled volcano. Danger, thrills and adventure lurk around every turn when our swashbuckling friends battle Captain Hook for the ultimate prize. Peter Pan makes a special appearance, aiding the team in their heroic quest, and, with the help of Tinker Bell's pixie dust, Jake and his crew fly above the stage in their journey.
