Adapted from the Disney film and original 1844 fairy tale by Danish author Hans Christian Andersen The Snow Queen, Frozen is brought to fresh theatrical life in this luxurious new musical.

Frozen’s journey sweeps audiences up into its thrilling world of adventure and classic comedy. While it does feature true love, the story has become beloved around the world for breaking the princess mould of girls needing to be saved by a prince, instead, focusing on the bond of two sisters, Elsa and Anna.

The opportunity to work in Australia late last year alongside Frozen’s remarkable cast, crew and orchestra creating the first international production of this gorgeous show was one of the joys of my career.
