Disney Cruise Line announced a lineup of Disney on Broadway stars who will be performing on select cruises this year.
The “Stars Set Sail” cruises will offer performances where the Broadway stars will share their Disney journeys via song. In addition, they'll be featured in exclusive Q&A sessions, meet-and-greets, adults-only shows, theater classes for teens and tweens.
Two of the performers boast with Disney connections that extend beyond Broadway. After playing Broadway’s original Belle, Susan Egan voiced Meg's role in Disney Animation’s Hercules. Prior to his roles in Disney Theatrical productions, Jonathan Freeman was the voice of Jafar in the animated film Aladdin.
Heidi Blickenstaff is set to star in upcoming Freaky Friday musical Disney Channel Original Movie.
Following is the lineup by cruise ship. Disney Dream is not included due to the short-nature of the itineraries.
