Walt Disney History Alive!
A special program about Walt Disney sets the stage for the glow walk later this evening.
A portrayal of Walt Disney is an evening of memories of an animation visionary. Though his name has become synonymous with the monumentally successful company he created, a young Walt Disney struggled to create an animation company in Chicago, Illinois, and Kansas City, Missouri, before moving to Los Angeles, California, in 1923. After losing the rights to some of his early animated characters, he finally struck Hollywood gold with the creation of Mickey Mouse and received Academy Awards for two short films in the late 1920s and early 1930s. His ambitions in animation were finally realized with the 1937 release of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, which became, in its day, the highest grossing sound film of all time. Walt Disney is portrayed by James Frommel of Maidsville, WV.
The program is outdoors at the Twin Falls Campground campfire stage and begins at 5:00 p.m. The program is about 45 minutes with an opportunity to ask questions and interact with the character. The evening is a History Alive! program made possible by the West Virginia Humanities Council. Free to attend and open to the public. Attendees at History Alive! get a glow stick at the program conclusion.
The Glow Walk occurs at the park amphitheater at 8:30 p.m. Arrival to park should occur by 8:00 p.m. to get a glow stick (as supplies last) and to get prepared for this go-glow evening. Bring glow sticks or bracelets, if possible, to make it more festive. Dimmer flashlights with red cellophane can also be useful.
