Disney Cruise Line Hires The Beverly Belles and Give 5 Productions
When Mickey Mouse calls and asks you to put on a show on his gorgeous ship, you had better deliver a fantastic product. Hence, the lighting-fast development of our new show, “Swingin’ on the Sea with The Beverly Belles” for Disney Cruise Line.
The Beverly Belles take the audience on a fun-filled journey through Disney songs arranged in three-part vocal harmony and 1940s / big band style as Millie, Ginger and Rosie navigate their comical journey through life and love.
The Belles also performed their adult cabaret show "The Beverly Belles sing ModernRetro" - today's Top 40 in vintage style, inspired by Postmodern Jukebox.
And a fun dance workshop for guests called "Boogie Woogie with The Beverly Belles".
"Swingin' on the Sea" includes the songs: "In the Mood / When You Wish Upon A Star" mashup, "Friend Like Me" from Aladdin, Princess and Love Medleys, "Almost There" from Princess and the Frog, "You'll Be In My Heart" from Tarzan, "Remember Me" from Coco and much more!
It truly takes a village and we are so grateful for everyone who dedicated their time, talent and hearts to this project.
