On our last night on the Disney Wonder at Disney Social Media Moms Celebration, we got the chance to see“Frozen, A Musical Spectacular”. This new show is exclusively shown on the Disney Wonder and debuted in November. It was amazing. I’m a huge fan of the movie and seeing it on stage only enhanced my love of the story.
The story was presented very differently, with traditional technique and modern technology- like projected snowflakes and special effects. I’ve seen a lot of shows on Broadway, but I’ve never seen the technology used to make a show sparkle like this.
“Frozen, A Musical Spectacular” tells the story of princesses Anna and Elsa as they navigate the meaning of sisterhood and inner strength, as well as true love. You’ll love seeing Olaf (this actually stole the show for me), Sven, and sweet Kristoff.
According to Disney, “The show features dynamic costumes and sets, remarkable special effects and spectacular production numbers that delight Disney Cruise Line guests in new and surprising ways. The creative disciplines blend to create a seamless environment – blurring the lines between costume and scenic, set piece and video, puppet and puppeteer – and expand upon the most imaginative elements of the film.”
Songs like “For the First Time in Forever” and “Love is an Open Door” are expanded into ensemble pieces, while the film’s wintry wizardry are realized in lavish production numbers of “In Summer” and “Fixer Upper.”
“Let it Go” is amazing — With transformative scenery, snow flurries and state-of-the-art video technology – this show stopping number brings Elsa’s enchanted icy blasts to reality like never before.
“Frozen, A Musical Spectacular” is based on the Walt Disney Animation Studios “Frozen,” which is the No. 1 animated feature of all time. The acclaimed film earned two Academy Awards (2014) for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song.
This is entirely separate from a two-act Broadway production of “Frozen” that is being prepared by Disney Theatrical Productions and is slated to join Disney Theatrical’s New York productions of “Aladdin” and “The Lion King” for spring 2018 at the St. James Theatre. It will have a pre-Broadway engagement starting in summer 2017 in Denver.
If you are sailing on the Disney Wonder, don’t miss “Frozen, A Musical Spectacular”.
I was invited to the Disney Social Media Moms Conference (Land and Sea) and paid my conference ticket, and additional tickets for my family members, plus flights and travel to and from the airport. I received perks and discounts and had the time of my life. All opinions are mine and mine alone.
