The 2015 Mankato Area 77 Lancers will be traveling to Orlando, Florida and performing at the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World!  The show theme for the year is entitled "Joy".   The music for this production comes from "Reflections of the Earth" by Gavin Greenaway, and is most well known for its use in Disney's "Illuminations" show which can be seen nightly at EPCOT.  The show will aim to express and share the joy of our student performers as they thrill audiences with exhilarating music and movement.
