Today, we’re thrilled to tell you that “Frozen – Live at the Hyperion,” the new musical adaptation based on Disney’s blockbuster animated film, will officially open at the Hyperion Theater at Disney California Adventure park on May 27, 2016.
The Creative Entertainment team, led by Walt Disney Imagineering Creative Entertainment Portfolio Executive Dana Harrel, is hard at work bringing to the stage a production that stays true to the emotional journey of Anna and Elsa while presenting a unique take on the material through elaborate costumes and sets, stunning special effects and show-stopping production numbers. To bring this vision to life, Dana and her team are collaborating with some of the most noted talents working in theater today including Director Liesl Tommy (Broadway’s “Eclipsed”), Writer Chad Beguelin (Tony Award® nominee for “Disney’s Aladdin” and “The Wedding Singer”), Musical Supervisor and Arranger Jason Michael Webb (Musical Director for Broadway’s “The Color Purple”), Puppet Designer Michael Curry (Tony Award® winner for “Disney’s The Lion King”) and more!
With “Frozen – Live at the Hyperion” coming this summer, we’ll soon be saying goodbye to one of our other “Frozen” favorites, “For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration.” Fans of the sing-along will want to catch it one last time, before it melts away forever on April 17, 2016.
