Description And Comments
Set on a dedicated stage between Buzz Lightyear and Carousel of Progress, Stitch's Supersonic Celebration combines an old-fashioned variety show with a bit of the high-tech audience interaction seen in Tomorrowland's Monsters Laugh Floor Comedy Club and Epcot's Turtle Talk with Crush. The premise is that Stitch interrupts television coverage of a galactic party hosted by a clichÃ©d emcee. Stitch appears in a large video display above the stage, watches a couple of live dance numbers and interacts briefly with members of the audience. For the finale, an Elvis-jumpsuit wearing Stitch shows up in person to perform The King's Rubberneckin' on stage.
The problem is that none of the dance numbers, audience participation or jokes fit together into anything resembling a themed show. In ten minutes' time the audience gets go-go dancers, break-dancing robots, The Miracle's Love Machine, an alien Elvis impersonator and a bit about blowing up a planet by mistake. The show could be improved by dropping one of the musical numbers or a couple minutes of dialog for more audience interaction.
Incidentally, the party the show is celebrating is "Galaxy Day," billed as "a special celebration throughout the galaxy where everyone celebrates everything worth celebrating." Throw in a couple of "magical's, " "wishes" and "dreams" and you've got Disney's next marketing slogan.
The audience stands outdoors during the show. Attending a late-afternoon performance will allow you to avoid sunstroke and fits in really well to most of our touring plans.
