Disney Theatrical Productions

Disney Theatrical Productions formed in 1994 and operates under the direction of Thomas Schumacher. In November 1997, the company opened The Lion King which received six 1998 Tony® Awards including Best Musical, and the 1998 GRAMMY® Award for Best Musical Show Album. In addition to the Broadway and North American touring companies, the show can currently be seen onstage in London, Hamburg, Tokyo, Paris and Fukuoka. May 2009 marked the first-ever opening of a DTP show in Las Vegas: The Lion King at Mandalay Bay. DTP's inaugural production, Beauty and the Beast, played its final Broadway performance in July 2007 and is currently performing in São Paulo and Russia. Elton John and Tim Rice’s Aida opened on Broadway in March 2000, received four 2000 Tony® Awards and the 2000 GRAMMY® Award for Best Musical Show Album, and ran for four-and-a-half years. In 2009, Aida will re-open in Tokyo. Mary Poppins, a co-production by Disney and Cameron Mackintosh, opened in December 2004 in London, completed its successful run in January 2008 and recently finished a smash-hit UK tour. The Tony Award®-winning Broadway production opened in November 2006 at the New Amsterdam Theatre, where it continues to play, and the first US tour began in spring 2009 and an Australian production is set for summer 2010. Tarzan®, which opened on Broadway in the 2006-2007 season, is now an international hit with an award-winning production in Germany and a record-setting one in Holland that closed in May 2009. The Little Mermaid, which opened in January 2008, with a score composed by eight-time Academy Award® winner Alan Menken and the legendary Howard Ashman, with new lyrics by Glenn Slater, played on Broadway for almost two years and will begin touring the U.S. in summer 2010. In addition to producing musicals, DTP licenses stage performance rights to more than a dozen Disney musicals to schools, community groups and professional theatres around the world through Music Theatre International.
