It’s hard to imagine a childhood without the magic of Walt Disney.

Devised and Directed by Paul Laidlaw, the show brings the magic of Disney to York, in a unique way. Journeying through the decades of Disney that have enchanted audiences of all generations from Steamboat Willie in 1928 up to the hits of today such as Moana and Frozen.
Paul about the show:
“Along with the brilliant work done by Walt Disney’s team of creative artists, designers, writers and voice artists there is no question that the success of his animated and live action films owed a great debt to the talented composers who provided the songs and scores which made his films so memorable. From Frank Churchill through the Sherman Brothers to Elton John and Alan Menkin a team of dedicated and inspired men provided some of the most romantic, witty, beautiful and exuberant songs ever to appear on the silver screen. ‘When You Wish Upon A Star’ is a tribute to those who created the music which was the very essence of Walt Disney’s timeless magic.”
When You Wish Upon A Star plays for 4 performances only, 4 – 6 October with a Saturday matinee at The Joseph Rowntree Theatre, York.
