Disney-themed benefit show brings beloved characters to life at Savannah Center

The Mouse is coming back to Savannah Center.

“When You Wish Upon A Mouse 2” will offer a musical salute to Disney songs and movies.

Little Hannah Goldberg earned her mouse ears on stage last year during the Disney tribute show.
Carolyn Hoffman was Cinderella and returns for ‘When You Wish Upon A Mouse 2,’ which is coming in April to the Savannah Center.

The Smash Productions musical gala played to appreciative audiences last year. It will be held in Savannah Center, April 16 -17 at 7 p.m. and April 18 at 4 p.m.

The cast of local performers includes Barbara Byers, Barry Corlew, Billie Thatcher, Bob Stehman, Bill Krone, Bonnie Williams, Carolyn Hoffman, Holly Jeske, Janet Maloney, Jim Flynn, John Byers, Sally Spieth and Tony Brown.

They will sing and dance to selections from such Disney classics as: “Mary Poppins,” “Sleeping Beauty,” “Snow White,” “Beauty and the Beast” and “Peter Pan.”

Part of the proceeds will go to Villages Honor Flight and Operation Shoebox.

Tony Violanti is a veteran journalist and writes for Villages-News.com.

Villager Bill Krone was under the sea and will return this year for the Disney show as well.
