Do you wanna build a puppet? Then just come to this play! The Frozen, A Musical Spectacular to be specific. In a new video unveiled today by the Disney Cruise Line, we get a look at preparations under way for what will be the second (of three) stage adaptations to bring the smash hit animated film to life.
The clip reveals several behind the scenes moments including the decision to bring young Anna and Elsa to life on the stage as puppetted figures.
The 977-seat Walt Disney Theatre provides the perfect setting to immerse audiences in the kingdom of Arendelle and showcase the film’s renowned score. Songs like “For the First Time in Forever” and “Love is an Open Door” will be expanded into ensemble pieces, and the film’s wintry wizardry will be realized in lavish production numbers of “In Summer” and “Fixer Upper.”
The production features the popular music and lyrics by the creators of the “Frozen” film score, Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, and is adapted from the screenplay by four-time Tony Award nominee Chad Beguelin (“Gotta Dance,” “Aladdin,” “The Wedding Singer,” “Elf”).
The show will debut on the Disney Wonder ship of the Disney Cruise Line this Fall.
