Why See Disney's Frozen: The Musical?
The Cold Never Bothered Me Anyway!
Samantha Barks is currently on maternity leave.
Grab your coat and get ready for the ice storm of Disney's Frozen. It continues to play in the West End at the refurbished Theatre Royal Drury Lane. Following a dazzling Broadway run, which garnered three Tony nominations, Elsa, Anna, Olaf, Kristoff, and Sven are ready to embark on the adventure of a lifetime as they bring the magic of Frozen to you!
Oscar-winning composer and lyric team Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez are the minds behind bringing this enchanting musical to life. The soaring score and stunning stage-craft led the production to receive critical acclaim on Broadway and earn the Tony nomination for Best Musical in 2018.
The Story of Frozen
Loosely based on Hans Christian Anderson's fairytale The Snow Queen, the story takes place in the Scandinavian surrounds of Arendelle, where two royal sisters, Elsa and Anna must grow up alone after losing their parents in a tragic sea accident.
Elsa, the elder of the two, must also contend with a secret - she has the power to create ice and snow with her bare hands, which she must keep secret, even from her sister, who nearly died whilst playing together as a little girl. By contrast, Anna is a sunny, albeit naive young lady who yearns for the outside world, having been isolated from Elsa since the accident.
When Elsa comes of age, she must take the throne as Queen, and the kingdom is reopened for her coronation - just for one day. Anna meets a handsome and charming Prince called Hans, who she instantly wishes to marry, much to Elsa's consternation. When the argument inadvertently reveals Elsa's powers, she flees to the wild North Mountain to live out a life of solitude and freedom. But Anna must find her sister and bring her back (with the help of an ice-seller, his reindeer and a talking snowman); otherwise, the fate of Arendelle will be frozen forever and left to the mercy of a cruel power.
