We may still be “in summer” but we just got chills! Our friends at Disney Cruise Line just announced that Frozen, A Musical Spectacular will make its way to the Walt Disney Theatre aboard the Disney Wonder! Starting November 10, 2016, guests sailing from Galveston, Texas will be able to relive the story of Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, Sven, and Olaf as Frozen comes to life on stage in this brand-new show unique to the Disney Wonder.
You’ll feel like you’re seeing the hit animated film “for the first time in forever” thanks to a fantastic flurry of theatrical techniques, modern technology, and iconic Disney storytelling. “The story of Frozen is one of the most iconic animated movies ever, so this is a unique and special opportunity to retell the story onboard the Disney Wonder, transporting guests right into the world of Arendelle,” said Kevin Eld, creative portfolio executive, Walt Disney Imagineering. With intricate costumes and sets, unbelievable special effects, and show-stopping numbers, Frozen, A Musical Spectacular will transport Disney Wonder guests to the fjords of Norway, no matter their cruise itinerary!
Tony® Award-nominated director Sheryl Kaller (Next Fall, Mothers and Sons) leads the talented team bringing the snowy story to the stage. The popular music and lyrics by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez—the creators of the Frozen film score—will be adapted from the screenplay by four-time Tony Award nominee Chad Beguelin (Aladdin, The Wedding Singer, Elf, Gotta Dance), and our favorite reindeer and the sweetest snowman will be just as vibrant on stage as they were on screen, thanks to dynamic puppetry by Michael Curry (The Lion King on Broadway). Rounding out the creative team are costume designer Paloma Young (Peter and the Starcatcher), choreographer Josh Prince (Beautiful: The Carole King Musical), scenic designer Jason Sherwood (Paint Your Wagon), and writer Sara Wordsworth (In Transit).
We can’t wait to see Frozen, A Musical Spectacular! Stay tuned to D23 for more exciting updates from Disney Parks and Resorts around the world.
