FMB 2011 Show Idea. Members: Tell Me What You Think

I have stumbled across a show that may totally fit our needs and fulfill my wish to have a happy and upbeat show that is not too cheesy.  The show is based on Disney's "Fantasmic" live show that is presented each night at Disney World's Hollywood Studios and Disneyland theme park.  It uses elements of the original Fantasmic score, as well as Mussourgsky's Night On Bald Mountain and The Sorcerer's Apprentice by Paul Dukas.  The middle movement is a medley of Beauty and the Beast and Part of Your World from The Little Mermaid.

It is my front-runner right now.  Please feel free to comment, FMB members.  Please remember I do not post anonymous comments, so if you don't have a Google account that you comment with, be sure to leave your first name after your comments.
