Attention New Jersey and New York residents who love all things Disney and/or ice skating.
Disney on Ice presents Magic in the Stars is HERE!!! Right here in NJ and NY through November 19, 2023!!! What's so fun about this one is that it will include characters and music from SO MANY of the Disney and Pixar movies we know and love, including Frozen 2, Encanto, Aladdin, Tiana, Moana, Rapunzel, Cars, Toy Story, and more! For even more fun, add on the pre-show Character Experience that includes games, storytelling, crafting and interactive time with Elsa and Mirabel, and photo ops to boot!
Magic in the Stars NY / NJ 2023 Upcoming Schedule:
We're heading to the show in Newark this weekend, and I honestly don't know who's more excited... me or the kids!! HA! It's our first Disney on Ice show, but hopefully not our last!! Be sure to follow us on Instagram for live coverage and a fun highlights reel!!
More Disney on Ice shows will be coming to the NY/NJ/NYC area early in the new year (these will make great Christmas presents)!
Get tickets for any Disney on Ice Shows here!
Here in Northeastern New Jersey, we live close to Manhattan but that doesn't mean we want to go all the way into the city and pay $200 a ticket for actual on-Broadway shows several times a year. But I have great news, there are some AMAZING venues with Broadway level (or near Broadway level) performances right here in our own backyard!! To make it easier for you (and myself), I've compiled a list of where to see plays and musicals in Northeastern / Northern New Jersey (Essex & Union Counties). Do yourself a favor and sign up for their electronic or snail mail newsletters so you don't miss out on some great musicals, dance performances, plays, and more!
These shows and theaters often feature performers right on the cusp of their careers exploding, you'll find these theaters listed in countless Playbill bios!) The sound and performances is top quality, but won't break the bank!
Some Universities with great Performing Arts departments and student shows:
There are TONS of performing arts centers and theaters throughout the area, I can't begin to list them all! Just head to google to find some closest to you or holding events you like best (concerts, musicals, comedy, etc). They make for a great date night with your partner, mommy and me cultural outing with a child, girls night out, you name it! And they're close enough you could add dinner and Uber and still not pay as much as you would for a Broadway show in Manhattan!!
