A few words on the Frozen show at Disneyland
I mentioned in my last post that there were a few technical difficulties. There were some costumes that weren’t cooperating and the mics would go in and out every once in a while.
I would like to say that this was one of the most intense live theatre experiences I’ve ever had and this is why: The Hyperion Theatre at Disneyland California Adventure where this show runs has an audience capacity of 1,984 people. So even if the adult:child ratio is 1:1, that’s almost 1,000 children in a single space.
Being quiet while someone is on stage singing “Let It Go.”
Here and there you hear parents telling their kids to shut the hell up because the kids are trying to sing along.
A thousand kids holding their tongues. The pent up energy was palpable. It was a flame sitting just out of range of a fuse.
I can’t say that each show is quiet like ours was, but it was both stressful and wonderful all at once.
