Disney will debut “Tangled: The Musical” on the Disney Cruise Line in November 2015.
The movie is being adapted for the first time on the stage aboard the Disney Magic. Academy Award-winning composer Alan Menken and Grammy Award-winning lyricist Glenn Slater adapted the score and story for the stage as well as writing three new songs.
The show features the characters from the movie, including Rapunzel, Flynn Rider, the villainous Mother Gothel and Maximus the police horse. The story, according to Disney, follows the “adventure of Rapunzel as she escapes the confines of her tower and the clutches of Mother Gothel, who wishes to shield the secret of Rapunzel’s magical golden tresses and royal roots. Rapunzel strikes up an unlikely friendship with the suave, crown-stealing bandit Flynn Rider, and together they face ruffians, thugs and a budding romance on a hair-raising journey.”
“Tangled: The Musical” will premiere on the Nov. 11 four-night Bahamian sailing aboard the Disney Magic. The Disney Magic will sail four-night Bahamas and five-night Western Caribbean cruises from Miami beginning Sept. 30 through the new year.
