Broadway is coming to the great outdoors of the Dr. Phillips Center's Frontyard Festival and, appropriately, it'll be for a night of music dedicated to Disney's stage smashes.

For one weekend only — March 20-21 — the Frontyard Festival will host an original musical production, The Music of Disney on Broadway, packed to the brim with stars of Disney musicals singing all the hits.



The event will feature Michael James Scott, who played the Genie in Aladdin and is no stranger to the Frontyard Festival after his Fierce Christmas solo show; Ashley Brown, the star of Mary Poppins; Kissy Simmons, who portrayed Nala in The Lion King; and Tarzan himself, Josh Strickland, from Tarzan.

The featured singers will be backed by a live band as they tear through showstoppers from the musicals they starred in as well as selections from Frozen, Hercules, the Little Mermaid, High School Musical and more.



Tickets to The Music of Disney on Broadway are available now.
