Disney magic shared with area special-needs kids


A little Disney magic was shared with children from the Dayton Deaf Kids and Teens Club on Thursday at the Wright State University Nutter Center.

As many as 25 children and teenagers from the club, a program of the Deaf Community Resource Center Inc., and Horace Mann Middle School received special treatment as part of the "Disney on Ice celebrates 100 Years of Magic" show being performed this weekend.

The group was treated to a Disney story reading by one of the skaters appearing in this weekend's performances; a sound and lights team demonstration on how Disney magic is made; a production number that left them feeling the magic of Disney On Ice through balloons and the music/sound vibrations; and a meet-and-greet from some of the stars of the performance.

The performances at the Nutter Center began Wednesday and continue at 7 p.m. today, 7 p.m. Friday, 1 and 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Tickets are on sale and available at the Nutter Center ticket office, Ticketmaster, online at www.ticketmaster.com or by calling (800) 745-3000.
