ANAHEIM, Calif. (March 22, 2013) – Disney California Adventure Park brings two new storylines to its popular family experience, “Disney Junior —Live on Stage!”  Joining the current stories of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and Jake and the Never Land Pirates are two of Disney Juniors’ top-rated shows: Sofia the First and “Doc McStuffins.”

“Disney Junior —Live on Stage!” continues the imaginative, family-based fun that comes from being part of a live audience.  The entertaining show pops to life with bright visuals and whimsical scenery, while four mini-episodes of playful Disney storytelling invite guests to dance and sing along.

Fans of “Sofia the First” and “Doc McStuffins” will enjoy interacting with these new characters from Disney Junior’s popular new series. Young Princess Sofia is known for showing every little princess-in-training how to sparkle – inside and out. Doc McStuffins cares for and nurtures toys in need. When the Doc is in, she really knows her stuff, consulting her Big Book of Boo Boos to help diagnose and mend her toy friends.

In the live show, guests will visit the kingdom of Sofia the First as she’s learning to perform a magic spell for her dad’s royal ball.  Guests also will enjoy a song-filled visit with Doc McStuffins and her stuffed animal pals, learning how important it is to cheer on your friends.

“Children will adore seeing their newest friends from Disney Junior onstage in our show,” said Elissa Hogan, Creative Director for “Disney Junior – Live on Stage!”  “We bring the characters to life with great music and great stories, and the children really get to be a part of the adventures.”

“Disney Junior – Live on Stage!” is scheduled to run several times a day at Disney California Adventure Park, in Hollywood Land. The updated show opened February 15 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World.
