Performer Spotlight: Tacks @ Red Car Trolley News Boys

“That’s why we can hardly wait…”

Well, hi there Tacks!

A grin from Tacks!

Okay, yes, I’m always sold on a smile. And this guy has a great one!

Whenever I approach a Red Car Trolley News Boys show at Disney California Adventure, just getting a glimpse of him singing and dancing there makes my day better!

If the Disneyland Resort is defined by its ability to make you forget your troubles and leave the cares of the world outside, then this guy is an ambassador of that cause!

He totally exemplifies that positive Disney outlook whenever I see him. There’s such good cheer and exuberance in every performance he gives. And this is combined with an air of sweetness and gentleness that matches so well with the bygone era of dreamers that he represents.

And yet, this charming guy is never afraid to look silly and always adds little moments of goofy interactions with his fellow News Boys – whether that’s holding his baseball bat wrong or playing around with their newspapers.

I know you can’t see his face, but I’m sorry, I just LOVE this photo. It pretty much perfectly defines this guy’s sense of humor and what he’ll do to amuse the crowd. Plus Shorty and Kip’s expressions are priceless!

Anyone having this much fun being silly makes the crowd watching have an enjoyable time, too!

Wanna buy a newspaper? Why, sure!

Seriously, how could anyone not like someone this upbeat?

And I for one, am always super happy to see him out ‘selling newspapers’ on Buena Vista Street – because it always makes the news of the day that much better!

Is he your favorite performer?
