From a press release:

Over 460 days after the Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza closed its doors due to COVID-19, the Wilkes-Barre Township venue made its first post-pandemic indoor show announcement today.

Disney on Ice presents “Mickey’s Search Party” is bringing magic to audiences of all ages through dynamic moments that take place on the ice and in the air. This adventure will deliver compelling storytelling through multi-leveled production numbers on Thursday, Aug. 19 through Sunday, Aug. 22.

Embark on a quest with Mickey Mouse and pals as they follow Captain Hook’s treasure map for clues to find Tinker Bell after he attempts to capture her magic. Journey across the Marigold Bridge with Miguel from Disney/Pixar’s “Coco” into the magnificent and mystical Land of the Dead and discover a vibrantly colorful performance with skeletons atop sway poles dancing over the audience in a beautiful cultural celebration of family. Travel to the wintry world of Arendelle and sing along with Elsa as video projection creates a kaleidoscope of crystals to help build her ice palace. Witness Belle lift into the sky as the enchanted chandelier comes to life high over the ice. Buzz Lightyear, Woody, and Jessie demonstrate the power of teamwork when they recruit the Green Army Men for a daring rescue in Andy’s room. Laugh hysterically as the hilarious pirates flip, tumble, and twist on tumble tracks, stilts, and more in an effort to showcase their talents for Captain Hook. Sail away with Moana on her daring voyage across the ocean and bravely encounter the fiery wrath of Te Ka. And make memories with your whole family during “Aladdin” and “The Little Mermaid” as the search party becomes an all-out celebration.
