Drawn to Life, presented by Cirque du Soleil and Disney, is celebrating one year of amazing guests with acrobatics, animation and more since its world premiere at Disney Springs November 18, 2021.

“Creating a show is always special, but it doesn’t reach its full potential until we share it with our guests,” said Heather Reilly, Cirque du Soleil Company Manager. “Now one year and nearly 500 performances later, the show has truly evolved into a one-of-a-kind experience that could only be delivered by a combination of Cirque du Soleil and Disney. Our cast, crew and guests have all been part of making that happen.”

The family-friendly show tells the story of the love between a father and a daughter, drawing inspiration from Walt Disney Animation Studios’ 100-year heritage of storytelling. The show celebrates iconic Disney stories and characters through innovative design, quintessential Cirque du Soleil acrobatic performances, musical scores and brand-new animation lovingly created by Disney Animation artists.

Over the past year, audiences at Disney Springs have experienced a production featuring all the elements for which Cirque du Soleil has become renowned – an international cast; immersive all-original score performed live; larger-than-life costumes, props and make-up; and jaw-dropping athletic feats intertwined with a healthy dose of humor – all sprinkled with some Disney magic.

In 2023, Drawn to Life will offer Sunday show times for the first time, including a matinee show. Tickets for next year’s performances are available for purchase now at cirquedusoleil.com/drawn-to-life.
