Disney 100: The Concert arrives in Perth next month!

To celebrate 100 years of Disney, MM Creative Productions is delighting Australian audiences with an unforgettable evening of live music, enchanting animation, and tales as old as time in Disney 100: The Concert.

Sydney audiences embraced this once in a lifetime centenary celebration selling out 4 shows at the iconic Sydney Opera House, with concerts on the Gold Coast and in Perth at the Riverside Theatre (PCEC) up next on the tour.

 

Audiences will be transported into the captivating world of classic and contemporary Disney animated film scores brought to life through the talents of Perth Symphony Orchestra led by preeminent Australian conductor Jessica Gethin and an all-star musical theatre cast.

Beloved songs from Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, The Little Mermaid, Mulan, The Lion King, Moana, Frozen, Encanto and more will be brought to life on stage along with original Disney animated footage projected live on a big screen.

Joining MM Creative Productions (MMCP) co-founders Amy Manford and Genevieve McCarthy on stage to perform these magical Disney moments are some of Australia’s brightest theatre stars – dynamic vocalist Chloe Zuel who most recently starred as Eliza in Hamilton The Musical, Cruel Intentions The 90’s Musical favourite and WAAPA graduate Drew Weston, Euan Fistrovic Doidge who starred as Joseph in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, and rounding out this incredible cast is TV and musical theatre star Mark Hill who was nominated for a Helpmann Award for his portrayal of Riff in Opera Australia’s West Side Story.

 

MMCP Artistic Director Amy Manford:

To perform this show to sold out audiences at the Sydney Opera House was magical for all involved, and we can’t wait to bring it home to Perth in April. Our 2021 performances sold out at PCEC and we’re looking forward to sharing the Perth stage again with some of Australia’s top talent to delight our hometown.

MMCP Executive Producer Genevieve McCarthy:

Disney 100: The Concert is a show of epic proportions that traverses both the classic and contemporary catalogue of Disney movie scores. It’s not often you get to see these songs performed with by a symphony orchestra so it’s very special for the audience, as well as us performing on stage. We love looking out to see an audience of all ages enjoying these beloved Disney scores from couples on date nights at our evening shows, to families, including often seeing three generations in one family enjoying a matinee together.

MMCP is the first female-founded organisation to secure the rights to the Disney In Concert brand globally and have worked in tandem with Disney Concerts (USA) to curate a brand new, never before seen program. MMCP was founded in 2020 after Genevieve and Amy returned home to Perth from London in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Twelve months later they successfully premiered ‘Disney In Concert: A Dream Is A Wish’ in Perth featuring the West Australian Symphony Orchestra.

Disney 100: The Concert is part of the official programme of Disney’s centenary celebrations worldwide.
