“A Year in the Life: Backstage to on Stage” changes to it’s summer set, featuring Cinematic Spectacular and the Superstar Parade


Earlier this year, we covered the opening of “A Year in the Life: Backstage to on Stage” at the Orange County Regional History Center. The display is set to change through out the year to fit the season and events that are happening at Universal Orlando. We’ve already seen the Mardi Gras stuff earlier this year, and now Backstage to on Stage has moved onto the summer display, which features Universal’s Cinematic Spectacular: 100 Years of Movie Memories and Universal’s Superstar Parade. The summer display will be available for viewing now through August 18th.

So what’s new to Backstage to on Stage?

While the information has not yet officially been released, the folks at the History Center were nice enough to not only provide photos of the new display, but provided information on what’s new. Check out the stuff below to see what’s new!


The exhibit will also feature a sampling of some summer costumes.
