The Disney On Ice celebrates 100 Years of Magic show will be at Arena Birmingham in the city centre from October 16 to 20 as part of a UK tour.

Audiences of all ages are set to be spellbound by the magical journey through classic and modern Disney tales as they are retold on the ice in precise detail with larger than life costumes.

An opening number will honour Walt Disney's most prestigious and early creation of Mickey Mouse, along with his pals including his cute girlfriend Minnie Mouse.

Mickey will host the event as he introduces more than 50 unforgettable Disney characters for sing-along scenes and breathtaking ice dance choreography performed by a talented cast.

Among the tales being retold will be The Lion King, Pixar's Toy Story, Beauty and The Beast and Frozen. Frozen has become a firm favourite with Disney on Ice regulars who revel in entering the kingdom of Arendelle to see snowman Olaf and Kristoff help sisters Anna and Elsa.

Producer Nicole Feld said: "This particular production is by far the largest Disney On Ice show we currently have touring, bringing together everyone's favourite Disney characters from Snow White, Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse to Elsa and Anna.

"Our vision is for audiences everywhere to dance and sing along to their favourite Disney songs, so we've included 30 tunes that they know and love."

Songs in the big scale production show include Hakuna Matata, from The Lion King, You've Got a Friend in Me from Toy Story and the hugely popular Frozen anthem Let It Go.

When I sit with the audience, I see those that are grandparents, like I am, enjoying a lot of the classic Disney stories, while young kids and parents really respond to modern day favourites like Frozen."
