Last year we surprised the children with a MAGICAL experience and took them to see Disney On Ice at the O2 for opening night, to say they were over the moon would be a complete understatement. I had got them excited about it a few days before without revealing our secret – we watched lots of YouTube clips of the show and they were glued to the screen.
Well this time I may be a tad more excited as Disney on Ice presents Frozen is heading to the O2 in December and opening night just happens to not only fall on the last day of term but also on my Birthday. We haven’t told the children that we are going and don’t plan to but they will be jumping for joy and I must remember to film their excitement this time around.
Feld Entertainment, Inc., the worldwide leader in producing live touring family entertainment, announced that its 34th Disney On Ice spectacular will bring the Academy Award® winning and number one animated feature film of all time, Disney’s Frozen, to life. Disney On Ice presents Frozen is set to mesmerise audiences when the show comes to London on 21st December; tickets are now being sold at www.disneyonice.co.uk
The entire Academy Award® winning tale will be told live for the first time in this brand new production, capturing the dynamic between two royal sisters, Anna and Elsa. Anna, a girl with an extraordinary heart, embarks on an epic journey to find her sister, the magical Elsa, who is determined to remain secluded as she finally feels free to test the limits of her powers. Rugged mountain man Kristoff, his loyal reindeer Sven, the lovable and hilarious snowman Olaf and the mystical trolls help Anna along the way in this story about love conquering fear. Audiences will get to sing along with such musical masterpieces as “Let it Go,” “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” and “Fixer Upper.” Plus, warm up for the show and learn the snowman dance, during the Fit to Dance pre-show. Disney On Ice’s Fit to Dance is a family programme, which aims to inspire families to have fun and be active through storytelling and dance.
“In our more than 30 years of producing Disney On Ice shows, Feld Entertainment has been waiting for a film like this,” says producer Nicole Feld. “While it might seem obvious that Frozen is well suited for the ice, this Disney On Ice production will touch audiences emotionally through innovative show elements and world-class skating.”
Frozen directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee add, “Seeing audiences around the world embrace Frozen has been the experience of a lifetime. And to now have the chance to consult with the talented team at Feld Entertainment and watch their creation come to life on ice, is thrilling.”
In Disney On Ice presents Frozen, Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse take the audience through the magical story based in Arendelle, with special appearances by beloved Disney princesses and favourite characters from Disney•Pixar’s Toy Story and Finding Nemo and Disney’s The Lion King, who come together to prove that true love is the greatest power of all. Director Patty Vincent says, “Our goal is to showcase these heartwarming characters in a way that allows the audience to cheer and sing along throughout this emotional journey.”
There really is something for everyone in this show!
To create a completely immersive experience for the audience, the set design will encompass the space from the ice surface up through the air, drawing everyone into the story and closer to the characters. Families will feel that they are trekking up to the North Mountains with Anna, Kristoff and Sven, and they will tangibly experience the storm inside Elsa. Elsa’s magic will be enhanced by state-of-the art special effects while her emotions will be conveyed through powerful skating.
We had such a blast last year that I can’t wait to take the children back again.
