The newest on-stage production from Disney, Frozen The Musical, has been wowing audiences at Theatre Royal Drury Lane since it opened last summer. If you enjoyed the film, you’ll love the stage show, which brings the magic to life live and adds a little more in along the way!
Frozen The Musical: Theatre vs. Film
In the stage show, we get an extended peek into the world of Arendelle! We see more of Anna and Elsa as children, learn a little more about the trolls, and everyone’s favourite Scandinavian family, headed by Oaken the shop-keeper, get a bigger role.
Of course, one of the biggest differences is that you can’t just animate the magic live on stage – or, indeed, a reindeer! Helped by some gorgeous design and theatre-magic tricks, the magic of the world of Frozen is sure to delight little kids and big kids alike!
Frozen The Musical: Songs
To the benefit of Frozen The Musical, theatre is a world with big casts and big stages! This means that the Frozen musical songs are given the full musical theatre treatment – with big ensemble numbers and choreography to match.
Get a sneak peek of what that looks like in their performance at the 2022 Olivier Awards below!

There are also a couple of new Frozen musical exclusives – ‘A Little Bit Of You’ introduces us more to Anna and Elsa’s childhood, and the scene in Oaken’s shop comes with a whole new song extolling the virtues of the Danish practice of Hygge; creating a warm and cosy glow.
Frozen The Musical: West End Cast
Frozen The Musical is brought to life by big West End names and relative newcomers alike. Samantha Barks – who you’ll recognise as Eponine in the Les Mis film – plays Elsa and Emily Lane started the role of Anna after starting in the ensemble of the show. Oliver Ormson plays charming baddie Hans and Craig Gallivan charms the audience as loveable snowman Olaf.
