From the Mouseketeers, “We are so pleased to give our support to the restoration of Walt Disney’s birthplace home. Every Mouseketeer is a part of Walt and Roy’s unparalleled creative legacy and we are thrilled to give back a bit of that magic with this event.” Todd Regan, Executive Director, The Walt Disney Birthplace added, “We really are all Mouseketeers at heart and this performance will surely bring back memories of that bygone era when we would all sing along to those iconic Mickey Mouse Club songs. To know this will beneﬁt the birthplace of the man who started it all makes it even more of an honor.”
As a special opening act, we are thrilled to welcome "Letters from Home," a patriotic tour-deforce featuring the bombshell duo of Courtney Groves and Erinn Diaz, who will be performing a range of classic hits from the 1940's. This event is in conjunction with the annual “Creativity Days,” a free community event held at The Walt Disney Birthplace in the neighborhood of Hermosa. Last year’s inaugural festivities featured a visit and performance from Dick Van Dyke and the Vantastix.
