The pre-Broadway engagement of Frozen, the new musical based on Disney’s Academy Award-winning film, will play the Denver Center for the Performing Arts’ Buell Theatre August 17-October 1, 2017.

The Broadway-bound Frozen, which will be told in two acts, is the “first and only incarnation of the tale that expands upon and deepens its indelible plot and themes through new songs and story material from the film’s creators,” according to press notes.

The new musical features music and lyrics by the creators of the film's score, Kristen Anderson-Lopez (In Transit, Up Here) and EGOT winner Robert Lopez (Avenue Q, The Book of Mormon, Up Here), and a book by Jennifer Lee (Wreck-It Ralph), the film’s screenwriter and director (with Chris Buck). Frozen won 2014 Oscars for Best Song (“Let It Go”) and Best Animated Feature.

Tony winner Michael Grandage (Red) directs the production with choreography by Tony winner Christopher Gattelli (Newsies, South Pacific, The King and I).

The production will also have scenic and costume design by Tony and Olivier Award winner Christopher Oram (Wolf Hall Parts 1 & 2, The Cripple of Inishmaan, Evita), lighting design by six-time Tony Award winner Natasha Katz (Aladdin, An American in Paris, The Glass Menagerie), and sound design by four-time Tony nominee Peter Hylenski (The Scottsboro Boys, Motown, After Midnight). Two-time Tony Award winner Stephen Oremus (Avenue Q, Wicked, The Book of Mormon) is music supervisor and creates vocal and incidental arrangements.

Frozen, which is produced by Disney Theatrical Productions, is slated to join Disney hits Aladdin and The Lion King on Broadway in spring 2018 at the St. James Theatre. Casting and Broadway dates will be announced at a future date.

Denver Center subscribers may purchase additional tickets beginning December 12 at 10 AM. Broadway subscriptions are available now. Groups of 10 or more will start in February.
