Stepping Out
A 'Treasure Trove' of Disney favorites on ice
From film to skating spectacle
By Karen Bloom
Simba and Nala and their friends join in the Circle of Life in a dramatic sequence from “The Lion King.”

Holiday treats make way for Disney treasures as Disney On Ice’s latest spectacle, “Treasure Trove,” is ready to enchant families during its run at Nassau Coliseum next week, Jan. 10-13.
Audiences will be treated to a medley of their favorite animated Disney movies throughout the years, including the very first full-length animated film, “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” and the 50th Disney film, “Tangled.” With eight movies and more than 50 Disney characters featured, “Treasure Trove” has a story for every generation, according to the Disney folks. 
Mickey and Minnie – assisted by Donald and Goofy – lead the way as they embark on a treasure hunt for the best of the Disney film legacy.
“We’ve chosen some of the greatest gems from the Disney treasure chest for this production,” said Producer Nicole Feld. “We went through our entire portfolio of Disney On Ice shows, trying to bring something very different to audiences. We wanted to pick action-packed stories that really resonated with not only kids today, but with their parents as well. “Treasure Trove” has everything from the swashbuckling pirates in “Peter Pan” to the comedic duo Timon and Pumbaa in “The Lion King.”
The production is jam-packed with characters and segments from the beloved Disney film vault. It includes moments from classic Disney films like “Peter Pan,” “The Lion King,” “Alice in Wonderland,” “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” “Aladdin,” and “The Little Mermaid,” as well as new favorites “Tangled” and “Princess and the Frog.”
The goal was create to a fast-paced action-packed show that explores classic stories in a contemporary way, according to Director Patty Vincent. “This treasure hunt is a fun, cute way to thread all these stories together,” said Vincent. “Families still love the classic stories and we’ve put a new twist on them.”
