New Videopolis Stage Show?
« on: January 18, 2013, 07:42:04 PM »
Since no one else has started a thread about it, @insideDLP on Twitter recently tweeted news/rumours about a possible new stage show as the stage is currently under refurbishment.





When asked if the preparations were for a new stage show, he replied - "Let's say that new entertainment is planned for the coming months. ;-)"

So who knows what's planned for that stage, although any form of entertainment is more than welcome to the parks!

I hope they are going to put shows on again, last few years I have only seen them  playing the cartoons on the screens.    :)                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            (Mdw) the shows are in Videopolis in Discoveryland, thy used to put on 1/2 hour shows ie. The Lion King, Mulan, The Hunchback  and lots more.
they were all very good and have been missed over the last few years.

The first few times we went to DLRP there was always something happening on the stage. It was great, specially on a cold day when you needed a rest. Yet the last two times we have been it has just been cartoons. But the little mice are still there, who are adorable!  

Fingers crossed for May, would love to take my daughter to see a show.

That'd be great!

Lion King has been over for how many years now?  It's about time something descent comes back there.
The dancing groups I've seen while eating there, weren't all that great, in my honest opinion.

I can't think they'd renovate it, to not use it properly ... So here's our hopes up!

I've always considered the stage to be under used, a waste of a good asset. Last summer however, when I was there, they had school dance groups from all over the world, they were great and it was lovely to see the kids enjoying themselves. They should use it more often for such things.
How wonderful for youngsters to perform in a Disney Park. Great memories are made of such things :)  =D>

Wow I didn't realise they had shows like that. We went in 2011 and don't think anything was on. Fingers crossed

Our favourite by far was Mulan, the work those people put into that show was just incredible, and everytime the person slide down that pole made me think he was going to hit his head on  the ground! Hopefully we may have some news by the time we go in 5 weeks would be great to see the stage being used again

Mulan was also my favourite, we saw it during our Christmas visit in 2000, fabulous show and I agree about the acrobats coming down the pole headfirst, the head missed the floor by inches. This is one show I would like to see back at Videopolis. :D

We normally visit in January, when its uber cold, and we used to enjoy popping into the Videopolis to grab a bit to eat and watch the Lion King show, good memories!

It has been a shame that there were no shows in Videopolis for years now. I really enjoyed Lion King when it was on, I hope they will do a show of similar quality.

I got the opportunity to go under the stage back in december and a lot of the lifts and stuff had been prepped to be moved so it was obvious something was going to happen :)

Would I be right in saying that there are no stage shows in Disneyland Park?
I remember when there was shows in Videopolis, The Chapparel Stage and the theatre by Fantasyland station. I am really looking forwards to the evening show when I go back for the first time in years on Sunday but will be odd not seeing any other shows.

Yes, the whole resort has no permanent stage shows (excluding the Playhouse Disney puppet show in WDS).
