32 Years ago "Pete's Dragon" Premiered Here's a flier from the Plitt Theaters which used to be across from the Shurbert Theater in the Century City Plaza
Like what they do in the El Captian, with live stage shows, Buena Vista Prod. used to send out tours to promote their New and Re Releases. At this theater you would have meet Pete's Dragon! which was the first stop on the tour!
3 Months later the tour cast went to New Zealand with the Kids of the Kingdom... Here's a program from the show there... and this is how you would have meet Elliott
The Brand New Parade! and my first job at the park.
Here's an article from the DL line 12/1/77
Here's a cast photo of everyone that was in the parade [This was taken backstage facing toward where the "New" parking structure now is... I miss that Arco station]
This is Marilyn Magness presenting a cake to the cast Marilyn staged and choreographed the whole parade
And Believe it or not, This is my "First" paycheck stub!
Wow! I cleared $8.57 and to think I was flying down from San Francisco to LAX then taking a Greyhound to the DL Hotel for rehearsals! [The flight was $12 , one way, the bus was $5 one way... you do the math!] I was working at DISNEYLAND!!!
