Disney Cruise Line has officially announced a brand new stage show ‘Frozen, A Musical Spectacular’ will soon be entertaining guests aboard the Disney Wonder starting Nov. 10, 2016.
According to the Disney Parks Blog, the story of “Frozen” will be presented “like never before, with an innovative combination of traditional theatrical techniques, modern technology and classic Disney whimsy, completely unique to the Disney Wonder production. The show features dynamic costumes and sets, remarkable special effects, and spectacular production numbers that expand upon the most imaginative elements of the film.”
Guests sailing from Galveston, Texas will soon be treated to this brand-new show that will be presented exclusively on the Disney Wonder.
“The story of Frozen is one of the most iconic animated movies ever, so this is a unique and special opportunity to retell the story onboard the Disney Wonder, transporting guests right into the world of Arendelle,” Kevin Eld, creative portfolio executive, Walt Disney Imagineering told D23.com.
Tony® Award-nominated director Sheryl Kaller (Next Fall, Mothers and Sons) headlines a talented group including costume designer Paloma Young (Peter and the Starcatcher), choreographer Josh Prince (Beautiful: The Carole King Musical), scenic designer Jason Sherwood (Paint Your Wagon), and writer Sara Wordsworth (In Transit). According to D23, four-time Tony Award nominee Chad Beguelin (Aladdin, The Wedding Singer, Elf, Gotta Dance) will be in charge of adapting the incredibly popular music and lyrics originally created by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez for the original hit movie. The new show will also feature music direction by Marco Paguia and puppeteer Michael Curry (The Lion King on Broadway) will help bring Sven and Olaf come to life.
