, , Comments Off on Disney Pauses Princess Concert Tour Amid COVID Concerns

The upcoming Disney Princess — The Concert tour has been postponed due to concerns over the spread of COVID-19, Disney Concerts announced Tuesday in a statement posted to Twitter and Instagram.

“Out of the best interests for the health and safety of our ticket buyers and their families, Disney Princess — The Concert shows scheduled to take place between Nov. 1 and Dec, 12, 2021 are being rescheduled to 2022,” the statement read. “Shows scheduled between Feb. 1 and April 16, 2022 remain as planned.”

Previously purchased tickets can be used for the rescheduled shows, but patrons can also contact their point of purchase for refund options.

The show celebrates popular Disney princesses through songs, animation and stories. The 85-city tour was expected to begin in Macon, Georgia, and include Broadway performers like Christy Altomare, who originated the role of Anya in Anastasia; Susan Egan, who played Belle in Beauty and the Beast; Courtney Reed, who starred as Jasmine in Aladdin; and Aisha Jackson, who portrayed Anna in Frozen. Anneliese van der Pol, who is known for her work on Disney Channel’s That’s So Raven and Raven’s Home, will also star in the production.

The postponement follows news last week that Aladdin on Broadway is currently pausing shows for two weeks after breakthrough COVID-19 cases within the company.
