Frozen the Musical delays its West End opening at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane

Frozen, the stage adaption of the hit film of the same name by Disney, has postponed its West End opening. The show was due to open at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane in April 2021. A new date has not been announced. 

The statement reads as follows: 

"As we start a new year, we are all excited about the time when we will be back in the theatre together enjoying the magic of live performance. In light of the recent government implementation of a full national lockdown, it has become necessary to postpone the opening of Frozen, which was planned for April, just a little longer.

The health and wellbeing of our audiences, cast and crew are paramount, and we cannot wait to share the production with you as soon as we are safely able to without current social distancing regulations. Therefore, we have taken the decision to temporarily take the show off sale, and to reassess our timeline. We will announce our new opening date as soon as possible.

Guests do not need to do anything at the moment – they will be contacted at the earliest opportunity with their revised performance date. We will do this in chronological order so that guests booked into performances in April and May will be the first to be notified of their new date. If the new date is not suitable, guests will be able to request an exchange into an alternative performance or to request a credit voucher, or a refund if necessary.

We would like to thank you for your ongoing patience and understanding in these difficult times – we are doing everything we can to cause as little inconvenience to you as possible. We promise the wait will be worth it.

An incredible group of people has been working together to build Frozen for the West End. Take a sneak peek of their progress here."

The cast includes Samantha Barks as Elsa, Stephanie McKeon as Anna, Obioma Ugoala as Kristoff, Craig Gallivan as Olaf, Oliver Ormson as Hans, Richard Frame as Weselton, with Mikayla Jade and Ashley Birchall alternating the role of Sven.
