Prepare to belt out your best ‘Let It Go’, because the Broadway musical adaptation of Disney’s hit 2013 film Frozen is making the trip to Australia in 2020.
The musical will arrive at Sydney’s Capitol Theatre between July 2020 and January 2021, marking the show’s first-ever international production, and will supposedly feature twice as many songs as the film.
Minister for Tourism and Major Events, Adam Marshall, said the seven month season is expected to attract over 73,000 visitors, delivering over $46 million in tourism dollars.
Disney Theatrical Productions President & Producer, Thomas Schumacher, said, “The moment the lights came up following a 2013 screening of Frozen, I phoned my colleagues at Disney Animation to ask ‘when do we bring it to Broadway?’
“It was immediately clear that this story of these two loving sisters would sing onstage. This creative team has created a glorious production and I’m delighted that Australia will be its first international destination.”
Meanwhile, New South Wales Premier Gladys Berejiklian said, “Frozen is one of the most highly acclaimed and sought after musicals currently in production. It is a global cultural sensation, and we are thrilled to have secured the musical adaptation for Sydney.”
Dates and cast members for the Australian run are yet to be announced. For more information, sign up at the Disney website.
