Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

IT HAS been confirmed that in Autumn 2020, Frozen, the stage adaptation of Disney’s animated film, will re-open the Theatre Royal Drury Lane, which is currently undergoing a £45 million refurbishment and renovation project.

Frozen, which opened on Broadway in March 2018 and was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Musical, is brought to the stage by a multi-award-winning creative team, led by Tony® and Olivier Award-winning director Michael Grandage.

It has a book from Academy® and BAFTA Award-winning Jennifer Lee and features the songs from the original film, alongside a brand-new score from Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, the Grammy® and Academy Award®-winning songwriters behind the global phenomenon Let it Go.

When their kingdom becomes trapped in perpetual winter, fearless Anna joins forces with mountaineer Kristoff and his reindeer sidekick to find Anna’s sister, Snow Queen Elsa, and break her icy spell. Although their epic journey leads them to encounters with mystical trolls, a comedic snowman, harsh conditions, and magic at every turn, Anna and Kristoff bravely push onward in a race to save their kingdom from winter’s cold grip.

The stage production has set and costume designs by Christopher Oram, lighting design by Natasha Katz, choreography by Rob Ashford, sound design by Peter Hylenski, video design by Finn Ross, puppet design by Michael Curry, and musical supervision and arrangements by Stephen Oremus.
