“The Adventure of Rhythm” will be at the Storyhouse Stage in Adventure Isle from June 3 to October 7, 2024. The show takes guests “on an adventurous musical journey around the world, combining different music styles with distinct rhythms, live performances, beloved Disney stories and rarely-seen Disney characters.” There will be different versions of the show.

A group of performers dance in front of a backdrop of stacked glowing boxes with musical notes. A single performer sits in a spotlight on the left, operating control panels or machinery.

The original story follows a team of archeologists who specialize in researching music and instruments from cultures around the world. They are in Adventure Isle to share the stories and rhythms of their travels. They set off on a journey to find the “Rhythm of Adventure” with an original musical number featuring live drummers and dancers.

A costumed character dressed as Marie, a white cat, performs on stage with five dancers dressed in red hats and matching outfits, striking poses with their arms up. A cityscape backdrop is behind them.

“The Adventure of Rhythm” features five music styles: regional, big band, hip hop, Latin jazz, and pop. In different versions of the show “each of the five music styles takes [guests] on one of two adventures.” Each adventure features different characters.

“The Adventure of Rhythm” will include music from “Moana,” “Mulan,” “Pinocchio,” “The Aristocats,” “The Lion King,” “Aladdin,” “Wreck-It Ralph,” and “Turning Red.”
