Lear deBessonet is set to direct with choreography by Chase Brock.

With tunes like "Go The Distance", "Zero to Hero" and "I Won't Say (I'm In Love)" Hercules boasts as having one of the conglomerates most memorable scores. Whether you're new to the story or and long-time fan, Hercules' tale of discovering your true potential, with a little help from your friends, is the perfect summer ointment! 

What is Hercules about

In Ancient Greece the gods on Olympus reign supreme. Disaster strikes when Zeus' (the king pin of all the Greek gods) newborn son, Hercules, is kidnapped and turned into a demi-god by the terrible god of the underworld, Hades. With Hercules no longer allowed on Mount, Olympus Hercules is adopted by a humble farming couple. 

As Hercules grows into a teenager he begins to realise that his super-human strength may be the key to finding out who he really is. Setting out on a quest become a hero, young Hercules meets Phil, a cynical Satyr who was once a great trainer to the heroes. But Hercules doesn't have long before he has to meet his match - an army of titans directed by none other than Hades himself... 

Will Hercules be able to rescue Greece in time?

A Star Is Born

Released in 1997, Hercules is a part of Disney's canon of great 90s animated hits! With the likes of Danny DeVito, Tate Donovan and Josh Keaton all lending their voices to the movie Hercules was nominated for a Golden Globe and an Academy Award. Now with the love of Disney at an all-time time high, it seems only fair that Hercules steps back into the spotlight!
