Frozen announces new booking period & final performance
Posted 22nd January 2024
Disney Theatrical Group’s critically acclaimed West End production of Frozen has extended for the final time, completing its run at Theatre Royal Drury Lane after three magical years on 8 September 2024. Seen by a over 2.8 million people, it now proudly claims its position as the 7th longest-running production in the illustrious history of TRDL.
With music and lyrics by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, book by Jennifer Lee, and directed by Michael Grandage, Frozen made its grand entrance to Theatre Royal Drury Lane in August 2021, opening to rave reviews. It received 7 WhatsOnStage Awards – the most of any production – and 4 Olivier Award nominations, including Best New Musical. The sets and costumes by Christopher Oram were conceived on an epic scale, boasting 154 costumes, including the iconic ice dress adorned with over 10,000 crystals. The ice palace set itself sparkles with over 50,000 crystals, and the colossal ice bridge, stretching an impressive 65 feet long and towering nearly 10 feet high, transforms the Drury Lane stage into a breathtaking winter wonderland.
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.”
Samantha Barks, who originated the role of Elsa in the West End, will return to the show on the 7th of February, following Jenna Lee-James’s stunning run in the iconic show.
Make sure you secure your tickets to see this breathtaking musical extravaganza before it heads out on 8 September.
