Robin Johnstone, one of the skating stars in Disney on Ices Princess Wishes, insists that the production appeals to boys just as much as it does girls. We have a prince slaying a dragon and Aladdin and the Genie, she says. Boys like that. But theres no denying the girl-centric appeal of Disneys latest skate extravaganza, which features center-rink solos from Ariel, Belle, Cinderella, Mulan, Jasmine, Sleeping Beauty, and Snow White.
Unlike many Disney on Ice productions, Princess Wishes doesnt follow a narrative. Rather, the characters make wishes -- all of which involve sparkly tiaras, accessorized gowns, and ice skates. Were doing jumps and spins and kicks, says Johnstone. Thankfully, our costumes are skater-friendly. Theyre not short little dresses.
