PREVIEW: Hotly Anticipated Frozen Times Ahead (Hennepin Theatre Trust)

This week’s cooler weather and rain are not just a welcome respite from a scorching summer, but also a harbinger of things to come: one month from today, the national tour of Frozen: The Musical opens at the Orpheum Theatre in Minneapolis.

The much-anticipated regional premiere of Frozen comes after much anticipation. Not only is this the stage adaptation of Disney’s animated mega movie musical, but the cast features local actor Caroline Innerbichler as Princess Anna. The tour was originally set to touch down in Minneapolis in May 2020. One pandemic and multiple vaccinations (and numerous other safety protocols) later, the touring cast is back together and rehearsing, with the show set to open in Buffalo, NY on September 10. Stop #2? Minneapolis, Minnesota, where the show will play September 30-October 20, 2021.

Here’s a look at one of the coolest musicals to hit the stage:
