What is Frozen the Musical about?

Across the icy panes of Arendell, Frozen the Musical explores the relationship between two sisters who couldn't be more different, but nevertheless, share an unbreakable bond - Anna and Elsa. Elsa has the magic ability to freeze anyone in her path and any object she touches, however, she struggles to control her powers. To protect her family and the entire kingdom of Arendelle, she spends her childhood separated from her sister. 

After the death of their parents, Elsa inherits the throne. But when her magic powers are revealed, she flees, and the Kingdom of Arendelle is shrouded in eternal winter.

Meanwhile, Anna begins to fall in love with Prince Hans, but is he the perfect prince he seems to be? After leaving him in charge, Anna goes in search of her sister. On her travels, she meets and makes friends with Kristoff, his sassy reindeer companion Sven and a snowman who loves nothing more than a sun-tan. Can Anna save the day with her friends by her side? Will Hans win her heart? Book Frozen tickets today to find out how the story ends!
