Getting carried away by the magic of Disney can happen in your living room, at the movies, in a theme park or on Broadway. Now it will take to the stage at the McAllen Performing Arts Center on Thursday, when some of the theater‘s most talented and brightest stars hope to wow audiences like Ariel, Elsa, Belle and more.

Disney Princess – The Concert arrives in McAllen on Thursday, bringing the stars of the stage with it for a one-night-only show at the performing arts center, located at 801 Convention Center Blvd. The show starts at 7 p.m.

For Broadway star Syndee Winters, 36, the concert is not just for kids but also for those who are kids at heart.

“What’s special about this show is that it gives an opportunity to those young-at-hearts who loved princess movies in the days of VHS tapes, who would show up in their tape and watch ‘Aladdin,’ and they just grew up but they never stopped loving princesses,” Winters said. “Now they have a place where they can come and sing, dress up and really have fun.”

While not wanting to give the element of surprise, Winters said the show will include classics like “Part of Your World” from “The Little Mermaid”, “Reflection” from “Mulan”, “Beauty and the Beast” from “Beauty and the Beast” and other princess classics.

These songs will be performed by Winters and other Broadway stars – Sarah Uriarte Berry who played Belle in ‘Beauty and the Beast’, Christy Altomare who played the original ‘Anastasia’ and Isabelle McCalla who played Princess Jasmine from “Aladdin”.

Winters explained Tuesday that being part of the concert not only brought back her childhood, but also brought her back to her breakthrough role on Broadway.

She began her career on a Broadway tour in 2012 when she played the role of Nala in the musical “The Lion King,” which toured nationally.

“I remember who I was with, the company of The Lion King, what this show and this character did for my life and just the memories that I created and will continue to create,” Winters said with a your evocator.

She also starred in ‘Motown: The Musical’, ‘Pippin’ and ‘Hamilton’.

But this Thursday concert speaks to him on another level, something that every fan dreams of.

“I’m thrilled to be a part of Disney Princess – The Concert because it truly brings together four incredible Broadway stars – all women who have played princesses on Broadway – to celebrate the music from all of the animated Disney Princess movies.” , Winters said.

The first half of the tour wrapped up in April and for many participants it was their first outing since the pandemic.

Being part of those memories for people who lacked stimulation means a lot to Winters.

“It felt like a healing experience full of joy and excitement,” she added.

“We celebrate them (the princesses) by sharing our behind-the-scenes stories of what it was like to be princesses on Broadway and some fun facts about princesses in movies,” Winters enthused in her voice. “We totally include them, break the fourth wall, we do a giant chant. It’s a good time.

Seeing the fans’ excitement is also special for Winters, who enjoys watching the audience.

In one city, her performance of “Beauty and the Beast” left people in tears, an experience that makes her even more emotional today just thinking about it, “because I remember where I was at the time in my life when I watched that movie and that music is just iconic.

Winter explained that throughout these shows she had many moments that stood out for her throughout the tour.

“The music, the behind-the-scenes stories I think are fun, and also being able to sing along with a giant group of people,” she said. “It’s like a shared consciousness. We all know the music and we will all sing with all our hearts.

Winters added that hearing the audience’s participation throughout the show brought her joy.

“I love listening to little girls sing ‘Let It Go.’ It’s so much fun!
