Musical Theatre Orange County (MTOC) proudly presents Disney’s The Little Mermaid Musical performances this summer July 21 through 30, 2017! Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen’s most beloved stories and the classic animated film, it is a wonderful love story for the ages.

He’s received critical acclaim for his portrayal of the King of Siam in The King and I and an 8-year run as Jafar in Aladdin, A Musical Spectacular, and many other roles across a 30-year career. Voice over includes World of Warcraft, and Quan Chi in the Mortal Kombat franchise. Ron has a passion for youth outreach, often performing in Pacific Symphony’s Family Concerts.
The beloved Main Street Electrical Parade at Disneyland is back home! Many have fond memories of experiencing it as children. Now they can take their own families as it has returned for a limited run until June 18, 2017! I have seen it for the first time, and it is wonderful! The dazzling parade made its world debut on June 17, 1972 bringing nighttime magic fun to the park, and it features classic Disney favorites like Cinderella, Peter Pan, and Alice in the Wonderland… The parade performed at Disneyland Park more than 3,600 times for more than 75 million guests until November 1996 before it started traveling around the world.

Along the way, she befriends a scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde (voice of Jason … READ MORE >>
You may have noticed that I was at Press Night of Disney’s The Lion King Musical with my son. I’ve seen it many years ago when it first came to Los Angeles in 2000. It was amazing then, and still wonderful today. Everyone remembers The Lion King, but imagine life-sized elephant puppetry and rhinos coming down the aisles of Segerstrom Hall while they sing “Circle of Life”. It was such a beautiful performance and the rest is nothing but amazing as well.
