Performers pose after a musical number during Rogers: The Musical

An exciting announcement for Marvel fans!

In February 2023, Disneyland announced the fictional musical stage show ‘Rogers: The Musical’ will actually be coming to Disney California Adventure this summer! The one-act stage show runs at the Hyperion Theater on June 30, 2023 through August 31, 2023.

What is ‘Rogers: The Musical?’

In the first episode of the Hawkeye series on Disney+, Clint Barton is seen watching a musical number of a stage show based on the life of Steve Rogers, the first Captain America. The scene is a musical depiction of the Battle of New York from the first Avengers movie, retold in typical upbeat musical theater style.

Viewers of the show saw just a glimpse of this musical number as Clint looks down at the playbill and rolls his eyes.

However, as a post-credit scene at the end of the final Season 1 episode, we got to see the entire musical number, titled “Save the City” where Steve sings one of this famous quotes, “I can do this all day!”

Ever since Hawkeye aired in December 2021, Marvel fans have been begging to see ‘Rogers: The Musical’ grace the stage in real life.


‘Rogers: The Musical’ D23 Expo Debut 

Marvel fans received their wish at the 2022 D23 Expo, a Disney fan convention that takes place every other year in Anaheim, CA.

To kick off the Marvel, Star Wars, and 20th Century Studios presentation in Hall D23, a live band came forward playing the familiar opening notes of the song featured in ‘Rogers: The Musical.’

And the crowd went wild. I should know … I was there!

We got to see the entire ‘Rogers: The Musical’ number performed on stage, just as it appeared in the Hawkeye post-credits scene. I do believe it received the longest applause and loudest cheers of the entire 3 day D23 Expo.

‘Rogers: The Musical’ Coming to Disney California Adventure

Seeing the number live at D23 Expo only made Marvel fans want more of ‘Rogers: The Musical.” Many fans on social media pointed out that the Hyperion Theater at Disney California Adventure has been sitting empty since the 2020 pandemic closure. The Hyperion Theater just happens to sit between Avengers Campus and Hollywood Land, the perfect fit for a stage show based around a Marvel character from the 1940s. 

Well, the higher ups at Disney Parks must have heard the fans’ requests, because in February 2023 it was announced that a short one-act ‘Rogers: The Musical’ would in fact be coming to the Hyperion Theater for a limited run!

What is ‘Rogers: The Musical’ About?

This fun production will recount Captain America’s origin story, starting with a young Steve Rogers and joined by Peggy Carter and Nick Fury. The story was written by Hunter Bell. The show will not only feature the original song “Save the City” from Hawkeye, and “Star Spangled Man” from the film Captain America: The First Avenger, but will feature five new original songs written by Jordan Peterson, Christopher Lennertz and Alex Karukas just for this stage production. The Disney Parks Blog also hints we may see some additional Avengers make an appearance! 

When will ‘Rogers: The Musical’ Debut at Disneyland Resort?

The first day for ‘Rogers: The Musical’ at the Hyperion Theater will be June 30, 2023. The show will have a 30 minute run time and will play four times a day at 12:30 PM, 2:00 PM, 4:00 PM, 5:30 PM.

The show will perform Tuesday through Saturday, and will be dark Sundays and Mondays. The last shows will be on August 31, 2023.

How to Watch ‘Rogers: The Musical’

The show will use a Virtual Queue during its two month run. The Virtual Queue times are at 10:30am for the first two shows of the day, and 2:00pm for the remaining shows.

There will be a small amount of seats available for walk-up viewing options.

For anyone unfamiliar with how Virtual Queues work, here are some basics to follow:

“Rogers: The Musical” Review

(Slight spoilers ahead)

I was lucky enough to attend a preview of the show, and it was just as incredible as I had hoped it would be!!

It’s a full Broadway style production, with singing, dancing, moving sets, spectacular lighting, and fog/smoke effects.

The 30 minute production follows the life of Steve Rogers, from his longing to be accepted into the Army to being recruited as America’s first Super Soldier, to being frozen in ice, to meeting Nick Fury 70 years later.

The show’s highlight is the big ensemble number “Save the City” as seen in Hawkeye, but all of the show’s new songs are just as delightful, from the opening number “U-S-Opening Night” to the beautiful ballad “Just One Dance” with Peggy and Steve.

Audiences will love when Nick Fury sings (!!!) catching Steve up on what he missed while he was frozen in ice. Lots of fun easter eggs on the screen in the background!

‘Rogers: The Musical’ is a guaranteed SMASH hit for the Disneyland Resort! (That was a Hulk reference!) Before to catch this show before it ships out at the end of the summer!
