Debuting at Disney's Hollywood Studios in 1989, this improv troupe of entertainers brought the glamour of the Silver Screen to Hollywood and Sunset Boulevard - the perfect example of "streetmosphere" that adds to much to the parks. Sadly, the long term future of these performers now lies in doubt as the Walt Disney Company continues to lay off staff in light of the impact of COVID-19. Whilst not capturing headlines like new rides or shows, these entertainers contribute so much towards what makes the Disney parks special and their loss will be sadly felt.
