今回わかること

今回のオーディション情報で、私が読み取った事実をまとめます。

  • オーディションてきっちり半年間隔なんだー。前回半年以上という契約だったのが今回は1年以上に伸びてる
  • 前回はシンガー(BBB、ミニー・オー・ミニー、スルーフット・スーほか)も募集したけど今回は少なくとも同時ではない
  • 30周年のパレードに出そうなフェイスキャラが分かった。ラプンツェルやティアナ、メリダはいまのところいない。

以下、事実からの妄想です。

一番の論点は、ミニー・オー・ミニー、およびホースシュー・ラウンドアップペコス・グーフィーのフロンティアレビュー(スルーフット・スーとダイヤモンド・ジム)のシンガーオーディションが同時に発表されていないこと。前回は同様のオーディションが世界各地で五月雨式に行われ、前回メモではロンドンでシンガーオーディションが行われています。今回はオーストラリアだけなので、今後別途シンガーオーディション実施される可能性も残されています。ビッグバンドビートのシンガー募集も行われないと整合性が取れないわけですし。

ミニー・オー・ミニーに限っていうと、シアター・オーリンズには2007年からニチレイフーズがスポンサーがついていることに注目すべきでしょう。

LINK:ニチレイ プレスリリース 2007年 | 株式会社ニチレイフーズ/株式会社オリエンタルランド 「東京ディズニーランド」「東京ディズニーシー」スポンサー契約締結のお知らせ

facebookページにも進出のNi-gata traders ?さんがウォッチしていましたが、TDRのスポンサーは5年単位であるという報道もあり、そうなるとスポンサードは2012年9月あたりまで(休園分がどうなっているか不明)。シアター継続は少なくともある前提とすると、楽観シナリオとしてはシンガーとの現契約(2012年7月より6カ月以上)は半年程度延長、スポンサードが完了するまでは現状維持という可能性もあります。気になるのは以前の株主総会で強調していた「天候変化に強いエンターテイメント」。雨に強い形に強化したパレードに傾倒するのかも、という可能性もあります。もしくはシアターの全天候化なんですが、いかんせんシアター・オーリンズはキャパが小さすぎる。

余談ですが、たまに出てくる裏付けなしの「ショーベースを半年程度改築して…」については、団体利用のパーク・ファン・パーティーを開催できなくなるため、もし真実ならば該当のページに何らかの注記が行われるはず。このへんもウォッチしてください。

最良シナリオとしては、30周年スタートと同時の新ショースタートだと思っていましたが、その場合、同一タイミングで“新ショー”のオーディションが行われてしかるべきです(参考:DCA新ショー「Minnie’s Fly Girls Charter Airline」2月17日スタート | dpost.jp)。ともあれ、Twitter上でよくある「終わるかも」的な噂よりは一段上の情報群で、妄想がひろがりんぐ。しばらくは盛り上がりそうです。

●Disney Character Look-alikes
8月31日 ロンドン
(メルボルンと同内容)

懸念されていたミニー・オー・ミニー、およびホースシュー・ラウンドアップペコス・グーフィーのフロンティアレビューのシンガー募集がかかりました。そして注目すべきは契約期間。シンガーのみ2013年2月から「7カ月間」(その他はメルボルンと同じく1年間)契約となっています。同時に募集のかかったビッグバンドビートのタップダンサーも1年間です。これは先のシアターのスポンサー契約期間(2013年9月まで?)と呼応するような…。

ともあれ、ミニー・オー・ミニー、ホースシュー・ラウンドアップペコス・グーフィーのフロンティアレビューについては30周年スタート後もある程度継続がほぼ確定したのではないかと。

#ペコス・グーフィーのフロンティアレビューとホースシュー・ラウンドアップの役名を間違っておりました。申し訳ありません(どちらも見たことがなく…)
