“Frozen JR.” tells the tale of two sisters named Elsa and Anna. Elsa was born with magical powers beyond her control, and finds that she must go into seclusion to protect her younger sister. Elsa has to come out in the open for her coronation as queen, but her powers prove to be stronger than she thought, and she mistakenly plunges the entire kingdom of Arendale into perpetual winter.
She flees the kingdom to avoid further damage, only to be pursued as a criminal by the frightened and angry citizens of Arendale. Can her sister find her and bring her back safely to restore Arendale back to normal?
Audiences can follow Anna’s Odyssean journey and meet the colorful characters she teams up with to attempt to find and reunite with her beloved sister.
Drawing inspiration from Hans Christian Anderson’s tale of “The Snow Queen,” “Frozen JR.” has been transformed from a feature film into a broadway musical with classic songs and heroic characters that only Disney Studios could create.
Disney’s “Frozen JR.” is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.
