‘Drawn to Life,’ Cirque du Soleil Celebrates 1st Anniversary

The Disney Springs Cirque du Soleil spectacular, Drawn to Life, is celebrating its first Anniversary, and what could be more fitting for the show’s theme? The classic representation for a 1st anniversary is paper, which fits in perfectly with the show’s central storyline featuring an animator’s desk.

In celebration of its success, an additional performance is being added to the lineup starting January 8th as a Sunday matinee.

“Creating a show is always special, but it doesn’t reach its full potential until we share it with our guests,”
“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.”

said Heather Reilly, Cirque du Soleil Company Manager

Drawn to Life features an international cast of 68 artists from 19 countries; larger-than-life costumes, props, and make-up; an original score performed live; and jaw-dropping athletic feats intertwined with a healthy dose of humor – all sprinkled with some Disney magic.

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, dazzling choreography, and brand-new animation lovingly created by Disney Animation Studios artists.
