Disneyland Resort announced today that the brand new “Frozen – Live at the Hyperion” musical will debut May 27, 2016 at Disney California Adventure Park in the Hyperion Theater, replacing the “Aladdin – A Musical Spectacular” show.
“Audiences will be immersed in the emotional journey of Anna and Elsa with all of the excitement of live theater, in an entertaining musical adaptation that includes elaborate costumes and sets, stunning special effects, show-stopping production numbers and unique theatrical surprises.” The interior of the Hyperion Theater will be completely wrapped in the world of Frozen – including snow all throughout!
DisneyParksBlog.com also shared that, “The Creative Entertainment team, led by Walt Disney Imagineering Creative Entertainment Portfolio Executive Dana Harrel, is hard at work bringing to the stage a production that stays true to the emotional journey of Anna and Elsa while presenting a unique take on the material through elaborate costumes and sets, stunning special effects and show-stopping production numbers. To bring this vision to life, Dana and her team are collaborating with some of the most noted talents working in theater today including Director Liesl Tommy (Broadway’s “Eclipsed”), Writer Chad Beguelin (Tony Award® nominee for “Disney’s Aladdin” and “The Wedding Singer”), Musical Supervisor and Arranger Jason Michael Webb (Musical Director for Broadway’s “The Color Purple”), Puppet Designer Michael Curry (Tony Award® winner for “Disney’s The Lion King”) and more!”
With the new show opening shortly, take note that “For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-a-Long Celebration” will be singing it’s last on April 17.
The new set and snow effects sound pretty great, but many people were sad to see “Aladdin” go. What are your thoughts on replacing it with “Frozen”?
