SALISBURY,MD — After a summer that has alternated from sweltering heat to week-long rainstorms, many area parents have struggled to keep their kids from going stir-crazy.
On Sunday, Aug. 11, the Wicomico Youth & Civic Center will welcome a new Disney show which offers the best of both worlds — pirates and princesses — along with the timely comforts of an air-conditioned interior. Two showings will be offered, at 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. Tickets start at $20.
“We don’t traditionally book many entertainment shows during the summer, as we realize that many people want to be outside enjoying the sunshine,” said Kristen Conn, director of marketing and public relations for the Wicomico County Department of Recreation, Parks & Tourism. “When the opportunity does arise though, we usually do look to dates later in the summer. By this point the newness of summer has faded a bit, and people don’t mind a break from the heat.”
In “Pirate and Princess Adventure,” two popular shows from the Disney Junior television network, “Sofia the First” and “Jake and the Never Land Pirates” combine for a new production produced by Feld Entertainment.
“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 are falling in love with Sofia and Jake, and we are thrilled to bring these popular Disney Junior characters to the stage for the first time ever.”
I think all of us have fond Disney memories — whether it was something as grand as meeting Mickey in person at Disney World, or as simple as seeing one of their classic movies on screen for the first time,” Conn said. “The excitement they’re able to capture in everything they do is truly magical, and it’s something that both children and adults can feel. After witnessing the live show, families are sure to have a memorable family outing.”
