The new production from the producers of Aladdin, The Lion King and Mary Poppins opens at Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC) in February 2022, following successful seasons in Sydney and Melbourne.
The Australian principal cast features Queensland’s own Courtney Monsma as Anna, Jemma Rix in the role of Elsa, Matt Lee as Olaf, Thomas McGuane as Hans, Sean Sinclair as Kristoff, Aljin Abella as Weselton and sharing the role of Sven, Jonathan MacMillan and Lochie McIntrye.
“It was a great honour for me to be in Australia late last year with our production of Frozen, to be part of Australia leading the world in theatre’s return. And, since then, we’ve watched in awe as Australians made the tough sacrifices in so many aspects of their life,” said Thomas Schumacher, President & Producer Disney Theatrical Productions.
“But Frozen is about a return from isolation and a community healing. And to now bring this show to beautiful Brisbane – which so warmly welcomed The Lion King, Mary Poppins and Aladdin - is a thrill, particularly since it’s the home state of our glorious Anna, Courtney Monsma. We are delighted to be coming back."
About Disney’s Frozen
Produced by Disney Theatrical Productions (The Lion King, Aladdin, Mary Poppins), Frozen features music and lyrics by Academy Award®-winning songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, with book by Academy Award®-winning writer Jennifer Lee, direction by Tony® Award winner Michael Grandage and choreography by Tony® Award winner Rob Ashford.
Adapted from the Disney film and original 1844 fairy tale by Danish author Hans Christian Andersen The Snow Queen, Frozen is brought to fresh theatrical life in this luxurious new musical. Frozen’s journey sweeps audiences up into its thrilling world of adventure and classic comedy.
While it does feature true love, the story has become beloved around the world for breaking the princess mould of girls needing to be saved by a prince, instead, focusing on the bond of two sisters, Elsa and Anna.
The stage production features a full score, including 12 new songs from the original Academy Awardwinning songwriters written especially for the stage.
Frozen opened on Broadway at the St. James Theatre in March 2018 with the highest box office advance in Broadway history. Frozen was also the highest grossing new musical of its Broadway season in its first year on Broadway. Its global footprint has expanded to include a North American tour, London’s West End, Japan and Hamburg, Germany
The Australian production was the first Frozen to open anywhere in the world outside of New York. The animated film Frozen was released by Disney on November 19, 2013 and was a critical and box office smash, earning over USD$1.28 billion in worldwide box office revenue and becoming the highestgrossing animated film at the time as well as the highest grossing musical film, before being surpassed by the remake of The Lion King in 2019. Frozen II had the highest all-time worldwide opening for an animated film and went on to gross USD$1.45 billion worldwide.
