It’s almost time to assemble for the premiere of “Rogers: The Musical” at the Hyperion Theater in Disney California Adventure park! As part of the Disney100 celebration at Disneyland Resort, this all-new, one-act live theater production will perform for a limited-time engagement from June 30 through Aug. 31, 2023.
As we previously shared, this classic tale of heroes, time travel and romance features a talented cast of singers and dancers telling the story of Steve Rogers – Captain America, joined by Peggy Carter, Nick Fury and select members of the Avengers.
If you’re just as excited for the show as I am, here are the top four details to know before you go:
1. A timeless story of a timeless hero, “Rogers: The Musical” has something for everyone
Exploring universal themes of heroism, romance and self-discovery, “Rogers: The Musical” is an exhilarating and heartfelt experience for Super Hero fans, theater enthusiasts and families alike. Avengers aficionados will appreciate creative interpretations of iconic objects and moments from Steve’s journey, while theater fans will love the eclectic array of musical styles in the score and the show’s original choreography.
“Rogers: The Musical” at Disney California Adventure park is inspired by the fictional Broadway musical theater sequence featured in the first episode of the Disney+ series “Hawkeye.” This new musical project will come to life through the creativity of Disney Live Entertainment in partnership with book writer Hunter Bell, star and book writer of the Tony Award-nominated “[title of show],” and will feature five all-new songs with music by Grammy-winning composer Christopher Lennertz and lyrics by Jordan Peterson, Christopher Lennertz and Alex Karukas. Plus, fan-favorites songs “Save The City” from the Disney+ series “Hawkeye” (written by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman), and “Star Spangled Man” from the film “Captain America: The First Avenger” (written by Alan Menken and David Zippel).
2. Joining the complimentary virtual queue on the Disneyland app is highly recommended
“Rogers: The Musical” is scheduled to perform several times per day, Tuesday through Saturday most weeks during its limited-time engagement, June 30-Aug. 31, 2023. You’ll be able to access viewing areas for “Rogers: The Musical” through a virtual queue system* available only via the Disneyland app.**
Each day that “Rogers: The Musical” is performing, distribution for the complimentary virtual queue will begin at 10:30 a.m. PT for the first two show times of the day and 2 p.m. PT for the remaining show times of the day.
How-to details on the virtual queue system are available at Disneyland.com. Joining the virtual queue is not required to view “Rogers: The Musical,” but it is highly recommended. If the virtual queue reaches capacity, you can check in at the Hyperion Theater before “Rogers: The Musical” begins for any walk-up viewing options.
3. You can fuel up with limited-time food and beverages fit for a Super-Soldier
During the limited-time run of “Rogers: The Musical,” select locations across Disney California Adventure park will serve patriotic and heroically-themed food and beverages, such as the cherry, vanilla and blue raspberry shake; sausage and pepperoni wrap; and pastrami pretzel dog. Vending carts outside the Hyperion Theater will also offer a “Rogers: The Musical” popcorn bucket that comes with red, white and blue kettle corn at the time of purchase. Check out the list of menu items over at @DisneyEats!
You may choose to buy a “Rogers: The Musical” Premium Viewing Experience package from the Studio Catering Co. Truck in Hollywood Land. Available in limited quantities per performance, the package includes a “Rogers: The Musical” popcorn bucket with kettle corn and choice of bottled beverage, plus access to lounge seating before the show, priority choice of seating in the theater, a souvenir lanyard and access to a unique photo opportunity.
4. Commemorative offerings and merch salute the show
You can remember your “Rogers: The Musical” experience with themed offerings available during the show’s special engagement. For a limited time, two Magic Shots from Disney PhotoPass service make you the main character with an opportunity to pose with Captain America’s shield in front of the Hyperion Theater marquee.
The new musical is also commemorated by collectible merch available near the Hyperion Theater, including a T-shirt, magnet and ornament. Additionally, at the Super Store Featuring Avengers Campus shop in Hollywood Land, you can gear up with a wide assortment of Avengers merch and apparel.
