Cue the Sing-a-long to Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious

Of all the secrets to Disney’s success — the belief in perpetual childhood, the ability to fix life’s problems with a healthy sprinkling of pixie dust, the uncanny ability to fit a life’s worth of baggage into one smart handbag a la Mary Poppins — the tightly held veil of magic and mystery is what makes it all work. And the place where this animated alchemy best reveals itself is within a Disney soundtrack. In the new exhibition “Disney: The Music Behind the Magic,” explore the role that musical scores have played in Disney’s popularity from film to Broadway from 1928 onward. See vintage sound effect instruments, Broadway set designs, costumes, LPs, storyboards and much more from A to Zip-a-dee-doo-dah on display at the Norton Museum of Art, 1451 South Olive Avenue in West Palm Beach. The exhibit is on view until September. Call 561-832-5196 or visit www.norton.org. Admission is $8 for adults.
June 6-Sept. 6, 2009
