Things to do planner: Disney on Ice, truTV's Michael Carbonaro, Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood Live

MOUSE-CAPADES: Disney on Ice

A century of Disney history hits the ice at Amalie Arena Thursday through Sunday for what will undoubtedly end up being a massive sing-along. In Disney on Ice: 100 Years of Magic, characters from Frozen, Toy Story, Lion King and other favorites perform as little (and big) audience members can't help adding their voices to Let It Go, You've Got a Friend in Me and Hakuna Matata. The "Mouse-ter of Ceremonies" of course is Mickey Mouse, with his sweetheart Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy and a parade of Disney princesses including Cinderella, Rapunzel, Ariel, Snow White and Frozen's Anna and Elsa. You can show off your moves at the dance-along preshow. Tickets are $15 and up. Lap-sitting kids under 2 are free. Performances are at 7 p.m. Thursday and Friday; 11 a.m., 3 and 7 p.m. Saturday; and 1 and 5 p.m. Sunday at Amalie Arena, 401 Channelside Drive, Tampa. disneyonice.com.

TRU TO FORM: Comedians Michael Carbonaro and Sean Donnelly

Two of truTV's most popular funnymen will be performing in the Tampa Bay area this weekend. Comedy magician Michael Carbonaro is a prankster who makes unsuspecting subjects think they are having a crazy day. Like the customer at the shipping counter who sees him pull a bowling ball out of a flat box or when the kitten he's holding in a pet store inexplicably morphs into a pigeon. His hidden-camera "Magic Clerk" segments on The Tonight Show led to his hit television series, now in its second season. On Saturday, Carbonaro returns to his improv comedy roots with a live show at Ruth Eckerd Hall laced with audience interaction, video clips and his signature magic. The show is 7:30 p.m. Saturday at 1111 N McMullen-Booth Road, Clearwater. $36.50. (727) 791-7400. rutheckerdhall.com.

Sean Donnelly, a regular commentator on the truTV clip show World's Dumbest, is also a veteran of the late-night talk shows and Last Comic Standing. He has popped up in everything from Broad City to Inside Amy Schumer, and he's the co-host of the podcast My Dumb Friends with Dan St. Germain. He performs Thursday through Sunday at Side Splitters Comedy Club, 12938 N Dale Mabry Highway, Tampa. $10-$16.50. (813) 960-1197. sidesplitterscomedy.com.

TIGER BEAT: Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood Live

Remember those hand puppets on Mister Rogers' Neighborhood when we were kids? The award-winning PBS television series Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood continues the legacy of the late Fred Rogers by animating the characters who lived in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe. You can see the show come to life with "an interactive musical adventure" on stage at the Mahaffey Theater at 3 p.m. Sunday. Daniel is the son of the original Daniel the Striped Tiger, the meek worrywart tiger from Mister Rogers' Neighborhood. Daniel Tiger ends up getting in situations that are both entertaining and educational, but he always ends up being a good neighbor. Tickets are $22.50-$42.50 at 400 First St. S, St. Petersburg. (727) 893-7832. themahaffey.com.
