Groups can take advantage of an early booking window before tickets go on general sale in March.
Full details are yet to be revealed about Frozen: The West End Musical, although we do know that it’s arriving at London’s Theatre Royal in late October 2020 for its UK debut.
Groups interested in seeing the show, based on the 2013 Disney animation of the same name, should mark 24th February in their diaries; tickets will go on sale exclusively to groups on that date ahead of general release on 6th March.
Special group rates will be available on certain Wednesday and Thursday performances from January 2021. To keep track of group benefits and performance schedules via email, groups can sign up online at www.seetickets.com/register/disney-s-frozen.
The Theatre Royal in Drury Lane is currently undergoing restoration work and will reopen in the autumn to host the Frozen musical. The £60 million refurbishment project plans to restore the theatre to its original 19th-century look, with modern all-day facilities including new bars and restaurants.
What we know about the musical
Kristen Anderson-Lopez and her huband Robert Lopez are the minds behind the music and lyrics for the show, having previously both worked on Pixar’s Coco and Disney’s Frozen (winning an Academy Award for its title track, Let It Go).
Directing the musical is Michael Grandage, a multi-award winner who directed Guys and Dolls, Grand Hotel and Merrily We Roll Along.
Jennifer Lee will be writing the book of the show, already an authority on Frozen: she wrote and co-directed the film and its sequel, Frozen 2.
Those familiar with the Disney film will recognise its Nordic influences, and the creative team have said they’re incorporating a lot of this into the show. Traditional formal wear has inspired the costumes as well as how Elsa’s magic will appear on stage: “When she controls her magic, she has a sense of floral quality about it”, says costume and set designer Christopher Oram.
We know that Scandinavian architecture will play a role in the set design, particularly in the look of Elsa and Anna’s castle home.
