The first performance of Frozen the Musical happens in two and a half weeks and the cast is now hard at work in rehearsals! They are joined by principal cast members Jelani Alladin (Kristoff), Greg Hildreth (Olaf), John Riddle (Hans), Robert Creighton (Weselton), Kevin Del Aguila (Oaken), Timothy Hughes (Pabbie), Andrew Pirozzi (Sven), Audrey Bennett (Young Anna), Mattea Conforti (Young Anna), Brooklyn Nelson (Young Elsa), Ayla Schwartz (Young Elsa), Alyssa Fox (Elsa Standby), Aisha Jackson (Anna Standby) and Adam Jepsen (Sven Standby).

Based on the blockbuster movie, "Frozen" was adapted to the stage by the husband-and-wife songwriting team of Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez. Caissie Levy is playing Elsa and Patti Murin is playing Anna. "I screened a rough cut of Frozen- I couldn't believe what I was looking at on the screen was a ideal Broadway musical", he said.

"The narrative arc is so strong, we can go quite deep", said director Michael Grandage, who won a Tony Award for "Red".

Frozen will play its out-of-town tryout at the Buell Theatre in the Denver Center for the Performing Arts August 17 - October 1, 2017.

The show will feature more than twice as much music as the 2013 animated film so parents can breathe easy knowing kids will probably walk away with something other than "Let It Go" stuck on replay.

Lee added, "For us what drove us, what inspired us was the deeper emotions, was the more adult themes that were in it".
