The malevolent world of the Disney villains takes a comical spin in “Villains Tonight!,” a musical spectacular premiering this spring aboard Disney Cruise Line. The revue-style show will debut March 20, 2010, on the Disney Magic and delight guests aboard the new Disney Dream cruise ship in early 2011.

“Villains Tonight!” is the first full-scale musical production dedicated to the Disney villains. The show is a family-friendly, fun-filled musical extravaganza that places these famous characters in some irreverent funny moments.

Disney Cruise Line assembled an all-star creative team headlined by the Tony-nominated Broadway writing team of Hunter Bell and Jeff Bowen (“[title of show]”), and features a “Who’s Who” of the Disney villains, including Disney’s newest scoundrel, Dr. Facilier from “The Princess and the Frog.” The show also features classic divas like Maleficent (“Sleeping Beauty”)and the Evil Queen (“Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”).

The show’s scenery takes guests on a dazzling journey through many villainous worlds, from the deck of Captain Hook’s ship to Scar’s Elephant Graveyard to Ursula’s Undersea Lounge. Never-before-seen interpretations of classic Disney villains come to life through extravagant costumes and artistic makeup.
