    I heard that they're bringing the Blue Man Group afterwards. But that's a rumor.
    I do like the idea of a Hercules adpation though.
    I lurk.

    Instead of having a musical show about a particular Disney animated movie, why not use the Hyperion for something totally original?

    Since the theatre is set in Hollywood, I think it should host an extravagantly lavish musical show. With high-energy dancing & singing. Along with awesome props and lots of colorful costume changes.

    It could have themes from Vaudeville to the Big Bands, to Hollywood & Broadway. And if anyone knows where I'm going with this, then you're absolutely right!

    Why not bring back an up-dated version of *Show Biz Is*...that Disneyland used to show in the 80's? That type of style would fit perfectly inside the Hyperion Theatre. I'm sure it would go over really well.

    My second choice would be an up-dated version of *Steps In Time* without the ridiculous fairy-Godmother/kids. That show has so much potential if they just did it right. I loved all the high-energy dancing/singing, it was great!

    And even tho I love Aladdin, I'm personally getting tired of shows based soley around Disney animated movies. It's OK (I guess) for Disneyland, but for DCA and the Hyperian, it needs something really different and unique. And no, the Blue Man Group does NOT count as original.

    But tell me, has anyone actually heard of Aladdin going away anytime soon? I have a feeling it will be gone by the end of the summer season or at some point this year...that's my PO.

    With all this talk of "off the shelf" and "on the back-burner" it seems the only thing that DCA is really missing is the kitchen sink!

    I have always wanted to see one of Disney's full length Broadway musicals housed there- like Beauty and the Beast or Lion King- just move the L.A. cast there. You could do two shows a day, three with double casting of principals, and I bet it would boost DCA's attendance since a park ticket is about what you would pay to see a show like that. I know the Hyperion can handle a show the size of BATB. Just a thought, but one I have had everytime I go to DCA.

    I love that idea, dramaqueen...

    But I really I think they should make a Pixar musical (Just kidding!).
    Well, light travels from the sun. Then, bounces off of our planet, and back into our eyes so we can perceive color. My body can intercept that light and dance around on it!

    Little Mermaid, Hercules, Hunchback, Beauty and the Beast, even Mulan.
    If it is done as well as Aladdin, I am sure it would be enjoyable.
    As for the ballet, I think if they were done as temporary special event shows from time to time they could be very succsesful. The long running shows must appeal to a much more diverse audience.

    That's cool!

    And with no dialogue, they won't have to insult us with politically correct, patronizing revisonism. They can focus on spectacle and beauty.
    I think this is on the right track. Something bigger on artistic value and less on pure commercialism.

    I think it would be hard to replace Aladdin since it is so well rounded. Lots of comedy, romance, action, etc... A replacement show would have to include all of these aspects in order to keep a theme park crowd entertained. At least that's my opinion.

    I think a Hercules show could be good.
    Lion king would be good but I would rather have original not taken from acual Broadway.
    The same for BATB
    Little Mermaid would also be good.

    The reason it should stay a Disney movie is that kids would rather see a show that they know the characters than a show with unknown people to them.

    Which for the most part Hercules does have. It even has the ability to have contemporary pop culture built in as was done in the film with Air Hercs, Herculade, etc. I'm just not sure how beating monsters aspect of the film would be carried out...

    At Christmas, I would love to see a short adaptation of Disney's version of Babes in Toyland on stage. They could bring it back every year. Could have some great spectacle with the oversized toys and battles...

    My Ideas.

    once a year do a LARGE magic music days type festival with college, high school, jr high bands from all over performing in the theatre. (a great oportunity for kids and increased park sales from parents entering the parks). but like i said only once a year. A theatre that big would be amazing to perform/see performances in.

    I like the bigger style broadway shows twice or mabe 3 times a day.

    The original idea for the theater was to have a day show and then a different night show. Lke what they have now during the day and a brodway show at night with a special tic. it would be pay for the show and for $25 you could get the park for the day or the other way around and the show would start later and when it let out the park would be closed. But before this could happen they would have to build the loby and restrooms. Whithout restrooms the show could only be no more than 45 min. in leangth. the theatre is able to hold two full sized brodway shows in it and is one of the most advansed theatres anywhere.
