In January, the West End premiere of Frozen was pushed back at Theatre Royal Drury Lane, but new dates have been confirmed. The Disney musical Frozen will now begin performances from 27 August 2021, with Frozen tickets on sale now.

In a tweet from the production, Frozen will open at a newly refurbished Theatre Royal Drury Lane this August. "Company is overdue and we look forward to coming together again to share music, magic, joy, and laughter later this year."

Based on the 2013 Academy Award-winning Disney film, Frozen tells the story of sisters Elsa and Anna, with Elsa running away from the kingdom to curb her icy powers. The musical features songs by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez including "For the First Time in Forever", "Love is an Open Door" and the anthemic "Let it Go." There's also new songs written especially for the musical, including "Monster" and "Hygge".

Casting includes Samantha Barks as Elsa, who gave a sneak preview of her performance at the Royal Variety Performance 2020. Stephanie McKeon will play Anna, with Obioma Ugoala as Kristoff, Oliver Ormson as Hans, Craig Gallivan as Olaf and Richard Frame as Weselton.

Frozen is the latest in a line of musicals that have posted opening dates this summer, including Cinderella, Jersey Boys and Back To The Future: The Musical.
