The other day, when we were at Disneyland, I was talking to the guys about Snow White: An Enchanted Musical. Something like 6 years ago, back in the corner of the park, Disneyland put on a Broadway-caliber musical based on the 1937 feature film.

It was awesome. Not only was the set super-elaborate, but the songs were slightly redone to sound more modern. Last night, I discovered that the whole show is up on YouTube. Check out this clip, at about the 3:50 mark. To update the sound, Snow White's vocal part was dropped an octave.

SWaEM is just part of a grand tradition of elaborate staged musicals at Disneyland. I recall seeing Beauty and the Beast on that same stage, years before it went to Broadway, and a really cool Hunchback of Notre Dame stage show. The stage for that one is still around, I think. You can see it from the train.

Now, that part of the park is reserved for little girl birthday parties or something. It's a shame. I wish they would continue to put on stuff like this.
