The Australian principal cast features 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 McIntyre.

“Western Australian audiences have so warmly welcomed our productions of The Lion King, Mary Poppins and Aladdin over the past 10 years and we are thrilled that Perth will now have the chance to enjoy our latest production, Frozen,” said Thomas Schumacher, President & Producer Disney Theatrical Productions.

It was a great honour for me to be in Australia for the start 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.”

“But Frozen is about a return from isolation and a community healing. And to now have the opportunity to bring this beautiful show to Perth, with its remarkable cast, crew and orchestra, we just can’t wait for people to experience it.  We are delighted to be coming back,” said Schumacher.

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 QueenFrozen 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 mold 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 Award-winning songwriters written especially for the stage.
