Featuring music and lyrics by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, and a book by Jennifer Lee, Frozen quickly garnered critical acclaim, winning 7 WhatsOnStage Awards and receiving 4 Olivier Award nominations, including Best New Musical. Director Michael Grandage and his creative team, including set and costume designer Christopher Oram, brought the story to life on a grand scale, highlighted by a dazzling array of 154 costumes and a set adorned with tens of thousands of crystals.

Director Michael Grandage said today: “It has been a joy to be part of the Frozen journey in London. Working with the team at Disney, the brilliant creative team, and the incredible cast have made this one of my happiest theatre experiences.

“Frozen opened in the UK on the heels of the pandemic, and it was glorious to welcome back audiences, many of whom were coming to the theatre for the first time. To introduce so many to the power of theatre and hopefully cultivate a life-long love for it, has been an immense privilege.”

Disney Theatrical Group’s Chief Creative Officer Thomas Schumacher added: “I am enormously proud of everything the team achieved with Frozen and of London’s warm embrace of it. This production was specially created for the West End, and it was an honour to reopen Madeleine and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s beautifully refurbished Theatre Royal Drury Lane, where the majesty of the production met the majesty of the space.”

Will Frozen The Musical tour the UK?

Unfortunately as yet there’s no word on if Frozen will head out on a UK tour, however the show will soon be available to schools. Disney Theatrical Group is initiating The United Kingdom of Frozen: Love is an Open Door. This competition will offer secondary schools across the UK the chance to be the first to present the full-length version of the show, with further details to be announced on their website.

The current Frozen cast includes Samantha Barks as Elsa (with Jenna-Lee James performing until 28 January), Laura Dawkes as Anna, Jammy Kasongo as Kristoff, Craig Gallivan as Olaf, Oliver Ormson as Hans, Richard Frame as Duke of Weselton; and alternating the role of Sven, Mikayla Jade and Ashley Birchall.
