Disney Exploring, Casting for Limited Run Musical at Disney California Adventure’s Hyperion Theatre

Through an audition posting on DisneyCareers.com, we now know that a limited run musical is coming soon to the Hyperion Theatre at Disney California Adventure. But just what could it be?

What’s Happening:

  • Disney Live Entertainment is seeking submissions from musical theatre performers for an exciting new Broadway-caliber theatrical production at the Disneyland Resort, planned for a limited run in the state-of-the-art, indoor, 2000-seat Hyperion Theater at Disney California Adventure.
  • This new musical project will come to life through the creativity of Disney Live Entertainment in partnership with book writer Hunter Bell and featuring music by Emmy-nominated and Grammy-winning composer Christopher Lennertz.
  • According to the OC Register, Bell wrote the book for Villains Tonight on the Disney Cruise Line, while Lennertz served as music director on Disneyland’s new Wondrous Journeys fireworks show.
  • Pure speculation on our part, based on the roles that are currently posted for auditions, but could we be seeing an expansion and adaptation of Rogers: The Musical?
  • Rogers: The Musical is an in-universe Broadway show about Captain America himself, Steve Rogers. We got to see the wonderful opening number from the show, “Save the City,” in the first episode of Hawkeye on Disney+.

  • Alternatively, the “Greek chorus” note has many fans thinking of Hercules.
  • Additionally, like Villains Tonight, the show could possibly be something that mashes together several different properties rather than retelling a single story the way past Hyperion productions (such as Aladdin and Frozen) have done.
  • When asked about the new show, Disneyland officials stated:
    • “We’re excited to be exploring a new, limited-time offering for the Summer of 2023 and looking forward to sharing more at a later date.”

  • The Hyperion Theater has remained shuttered at Disney California Adventure since the park’s pandemic closure in March 2020. The most recent show to be featured was Frozen: Live at the Hyperion.
  • Prior to that, the ever-popular and long-running Disney’s Aladdin – A Musical Spectacular ran from 2003-2016.
