“I am so excited to join the Disney family and create a new show that is driven by my passion for dance and music,” says Mackenzie Ziegler. “I grew up loving all things Disney, so the opportunity to tell an inspiring story through dance and the greatest Disney music of all time is a dream come true. The show will be everything magical we love about Disney, with a modern dance twist that you have to come and see live. I can’t wait!”

At just 15 years old, Mackenzie Ziegler has become one of the most influential rising stars of Generation Z. She has made a splash in the entertainment industry garnering a massive social media presence of over 30 million followers across several platforms, and her music videos have collectively received over 200 million views. In August 2019, she was nominated for a Teen Choice Award in the category of “Choice Fashion/Beauty Web Star,” and the previous year she won a Teen Choice Award for “Choice Muser.”

As a singer, songwriter and recording artist, Mackenzie released her latest single “HOT” in July 2019. The single was her first release with Arista Records and showcased her growth as a rising artist. The new single came shortly after the launch of PRETTYMUCH’S Summer North American FOMO Tour, where she opened for the boy band throughout shows across the country.

In November 2018, Mackenzie released her album Phases, which featured the singles “Nothing on Us” and “Wonderful,” written by Grammy-nominated songwriters Sia and Jesse Shatkin. Prior to Phases, she released the single “Monsters (aka Haters)” and followed this success with her singles: “Teamwork,” “Breathe” and “What If.”

Mackenzie can currently be seen starring in the YouTube series “Total Eclipse” for the digital network Brat, on which she also serves as Executive Producer, and in the upcoming animated film “Ice Princess Lily” for DIRECTV. Last fall, Mackenzie competed on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars: Juniors,” and will next be seen in the sci-fi film “Let Us In.”

The show is created and directed by Amy Tinkham, who started her career as a professional dancer before moving into choreography for artists including Madonna and The Dixie Chicks. Most recently Tinkham was the creative director for Aerosmith’s Las Vegas residency show “Deuces Are Wild” and James Taylor’s 2017/2018 national tour. Guy Phillips is partnering with Right Angle Entertainment to produce Disney Dance Upon a Dream, and first worked together with Tinkham as producer of the “Dancing with the Stars” live tour.

MEAN GIRLS opened on Broadway in April 2018 to rave reviews at the August Wilson Theatre, where it continues playing to packed houses. The show had its world premiere at the National Theatre in Washington D.C., in the fall of 2017.

Cady Heron may have grown up on an African savanna, but nothing prepared her for the wild and vicious ways of her strange new home: suburban Illinois. How will this naïve newbie rise to the top of the popularity pecking order – by taking on The Plastics, a trio of lionized frenemies led by the charming but ruthless Regina George. But when Cady devises a plan to end Regina’s reign, she learns the hard way that you can’t cross a Queen Bee without getting stung.

BIOGRAPHIES:

JIMMY BUFFETT (Composer/Lyricist). Singer/songwriter/author Jimmy Buffett has become a legend of popular culture as the composer of such classic songs as “Margaritaville,” “Come Monday” and “Cheeseburger in Paradise.” He has recorded over 50 albums, most of which have gone gold, platinum or multi-platinum. His sold-out concert tours are an annual rite of summer passage for his multigenerational legions of fans, some affectionately known as Parrot Heads, many of whom are professionals by day and who dress in spectacular and outrageous tropical outfits and headwear when Jimmy comes to town. Born in the Gulf Coast town of Pascagoula, Mississippi, he was raised in Mobile, Alabama. He is a fourth-generation sailor and fisherman, a pilot, a surfer and a frequent traveler to remote and exotic places of the world, having become addicted to National Geographic magazine as a child. The lyrics to many of his songs are influenced by his travels all over the globe. As a best-selling author, he is one of only nine authors in the history of The New York Times Bestseller List to have reached #1 on both their fiction and non-fiction lists. Jimmy has received two Grammy nominations, numerous Country Music Association awards and was the recipient of one of the nation’s highest songwriting honors when he was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. And now Jimmy is heading back into the theatre world. The new musical Escape to Margaritaville features the music and lifestyle of Jimmy Buffett, from an original story, and includes both new songs and the most-loved Buffett classics. Speaking of Buffett classics, the most famous of them all, “Margaritaville” has been inducted into the 2016 Grammy Hall of Fame for its cultural and historic significance. Only those recordings that have influenced and inspired both music creators and fans for generations are considered for this most special honor.

GREG GARCIA (Book) created three back-to-back syndicated comedies: “Yes, Dear,” “My Name is Earl” and “Raising Hope.” He has written on a variety of other sitcoms, including “Family Matters” and “Family Guy,” and won an Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series for the pilot of “My Name is Earl.”  Garcia entered the world of musical theatre for the sole reason of hoping his oldest son Camden, a very talented actor at Boston University, would think he was cool. When he’s not writing, directing and producing TV shows, he likes to watch hockey with his son Nathan, play board games with his son Trace and walk Mabel the dog on the beach with his amazing wife Kim.

MIKE O’MALLEY (Book) is the creator of the award-winning television series “Survivor’s Remorse” on Starz. He also wrote on Showtime’s “Shameless” for the first four seasons. As an actor, he was nominated for an Emmy for his portrayal of Burt Hummel on “Glee” and recently appeared in the films Sully and Concussion. Television acting credits include: “Yes, Dear,” “Justified,” “My Own Worst Enemy,” “My Name is Earl,” “Welcome to the Family” and “The Mike O’Malley Show.” Film acting credits include: 28 Days, Deep Impact, Cedar Rapids, Eat Pray Love and Meet Dave. Way back when, he hosted the Nickelodeon shows “Get the Picture” and “Guts”. He is the author of two plays that have been published by Samuel French: Three Years from Thirty and Diverting Devotion. His play Searching for Certainty was adapted into the film Certainty, which won the Best Screenplay award at the Boston Film Festival. Born in Boston, and raised in New Hampshire, Mr. O’Malley resides in Los Angeles with his wife Lisa and their three children.

ABOUT ROALD DAHL AND HIS LEGACY

Roald Dahl (1916-1990) was a spy, ace fighter-pilot, chocolate historian and medical inventor. He was also the author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, The BFG and many more brilliant stories. He remains the world’s No.1 storyteller.

Sitting in a hut at the bottom of his garden, surrounded by odd bits and pieces such as a suitcase (used as a footrest), his own hipbone (which he’d had replaced) and a heavy ball of metal foil (made from years’ worth of chocolate wrappers), he went on to write some of the world’s best-loved children’s stories. His first children’s story, James and the Giant Peach, was published in 1961, was a hit and every subsequent book became a best-seller.

Today, his stories are available in 58 languages and, by a conservative estimate, he has sold more than 250 million books. Many of these stories have also been adapted for stage and screen, including the 1971 film classic Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Wes Anderson’s acclaimed Fantastic Mr. Fox, the multi-award-winning Matilda The Musical from the RSC with music by Tim Minchin, and Steven Spielberg’s blockbuster The BFG. The latest adaptation is Charlie and the Chocolate Factory The Musical which opened on Broadway in April 2017 following three golden years on London’s West End.

Review by John Delia

There have been several films and TV movies about Judy Garland and her sometimes troubled life, but in Judy a snippet of the final months of her life gives one last look at the “Over the Rainbow” wonder. Nicely directed and starring Renee Zellweger as the singer and actor, the movie Judy adds a nice farewell. I hear Oscar in the wind. Read more…
