Rehearsals Starting for Cirque du Soleil Drawn to Life

Disney Parks Blog gave us some exciting news. For anyone who has been looking forward to the brand new Cirque du Soleil show Drawn to Life, rehearsals have officially started. Jeremy Schoolfield shared this on Disney Parks Blog:

“There’s always a sense of excitement and anticipation when you walk into a theater, but even seasoned Cirque du Soleil artists were surprised by the overwhelming emotion they felt stepping back inside the iconic white tent at Disney Springs.

“Seeing everyone again, it’s like coming home. It’s like being with family. I really can’t wait to put this show together for everyone to see,” said David Rimmer, who is one of the high-flying teeterboard artists in the show. 

Drawn to Life presented by Cirque du Soleil & Disney is scheduled to open Nov. 18. A new collaboration between Cirque du Soleil, Walt Disney Animation Studios and Walt Disney Imagineering, this family-friendly show will be an exciting new addition to the entertainment lineup at Disney Springs and another incredible way to celebrate the Walt Disney World Resort 50th Anniversary.

For now, costumes and makeup are put away as artists focus on regaining skills and working together as a team.
