Disney's 'Frozen' Musical Will Be Performed on A Disney Cruise Line

For the "first time in forever," the animated hit Frozen is getting the Disney Cruise Line theatrical treatment as a new stage show aboard the Disney Wonder.

"Frozen, A Musical Spectacular" debuts, along with a wave of new enhancements to the ship, on cruises starting Nov. 10, 2016, from Galveston, Texas.

The story will be presented like never before, with an combination of traditional theatrical techniques, modern technology and classic Disney whimsy, completely unique to the Disney Wonder production.

"We're so excited to bring 'Frozen, A Musical Spectacular' to the stage of the Walt Disney Theatre on the Disney Wonder," said Jim Urry, Vice President, Entertainment, Disney Cruise Line.

"The production is going to delight each one of our guests because it's a story for absolutely everyone in the family."

"Frozen, A Musical Spectacular" will follow the adventure of royal sisters Anna and Elsa as they embark on a journey to discover the meaning of sisterhood, inner strength and true love.
The show features dynamic costumes and sets and special effects.

The creative disciplines blend to create a seamless environment - blurring the lines between costume and scenic, set piece and video, puppet and puppeteer - and expand upon the most imaginative elements of the film.

"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.

To adapt this blockbuster animated feature into a quintessential stage production, Eld assembled a team of distinguished creative talent with Broadway credits and theatrical accolades.

The production is led by Tony Award-nominated director Sheryl Kaller ("Next Fall," "Mothers and Sons").

Joining the creative team are Tony Award-winning 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").

"Frozen, a Musical Spectacular" will feature music direction by Marco Paguia, projection design by Aaron Rhyne and lighting design by Rui Rita.

Dynamic puppetry by Michael Curry, whose designs are featured in Disney's Tony Award-winning Broadway musical "The Lion King," will bring exciting physicality to characters like Sven and Olaf.

A stand-out moment, the emblematic ballad "Let it Go" will be transformed into a full-fledged stage spectacle.

"Frozen, A Musical Spectacular" is based on the Walt Disney Animation Studios Frozen, which is the number one animated feature of all time. The acclaimed film earned two Academy Awards (2014) for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song.
