As part of the Disney100 celebration, Disneyland Resort
presents “Rogers: The Musical” – an all-new, one-act musical theater production – at the
Hyperion Theater in Disney California Adventure Park for a limited time, June 30 through Aug.
31, 2023. A classic tale of heroes, time travel and romance, the approximately 30-minute show
features a talented cast of singers and dancers telling the story of Steve Rogers – Captain
America, joined by Peggy Carter, Nick Fury and select members of the Avengers.
The real-life production of “Rogers: The Musical” draws inspiration from the fictional Broadway
musical theater sequence featured in the first episode of the Disney+ series “Hawkeye.” This
new musical project will come to life through the creativity of Disney Live Entertainment in
partnership with book writer Hunter Bell, star and book writer of the Tony Award-nominated
“[title of show],” and will feature five all-new songs with music by Grammy-winning composer
Christopher Lennertz and lyrics by Jordan Peterson, Christopher Lennertz and Alex Karukas.
The show will also include fan-favorite songs “Save The City” from the Disney+ series
“Hawkeye” (written by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman) and “Star Spangled Man” from the film
“Captain America: The First Avenger” (written by Alan Menken and David Zippel).
“Rogers: The Musical” is scheduled to perform several times per day, Tuesday through
Saturday most weeks during its limited-time engagement. Guests can check
and the Disneyland app* for show times.
A timeless story of a timeless hero
Exploring universal themes of heroism, romance and self-discovery, “Rogers: The Musical” is an
exhilarating and heartfelt experience for Super Hero fans, theater enthusiasts and families alike.
As the story follows Steve’s journey becoming Captain America and his relationship with Peggy
Carter, Avengers aficionados will appreciate creative interpretations of iconic objects and
moments, such as Steve’s notebook and the use of the Time Stone to revisit his past.
“Rogers: The Musical” will be super powered by an eclectic array of musical styles, including
five new original songs written for the Disneyland Resort production and unique arrangements
of “Star Spangled Man” and “Save the City.” Covering genres such as big band jazz, modern
funk, classic orchestra and more, instrumental recordings heard throughout the show were
brought to life by a 60-piece orchestra. From a romantic ballad to an action-packed battle song,
the emotional music is complemented by original choreography that incorporates dance styles
from across the decades.
Developed by an expert team at Disney Live Entertainment, the creative direction for “Rogers:
The Musical” at Disney California Adventure Park transforms the Hyperion Theater stage for
each scene through a combination of layered two-dimensional scenery, physical set pieces and
the theater’s 2,200-square-foot video screen.
