Frozen - The Broadway Musical @ Eastern Regional High School

"What do I know about Love?" I know the audience loved Eastern Regional High School's production of "Frozen: The Broadway Musical." From their roaring applause, the sheer presence of seeing 65 students working together on stage had the audience on their feet.  The show is running from March 24 through April 2nd.

The story was brought to life with the movie version in 2013, with songs by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, and stars like Kristen Bell, Josh Gad, Jonathan Groff, and Idina Menzel, winning the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. It was moved to Broadway in 2018, and nominated for the Tony for Best New Musical. "Frozen: The Broadway Musical' is a sister story, unlike any other Disney movie made. Eastern High School director explained how he loves everyone to be a part of the arts, with an accepting and inclusive cast and crew. Eastern has gotten the community involved in this production as well with the kindergarten through fifth-grade students coloring snowflakes hung around the lobby.

The cast of frozen quickly thawed the audience out, heating up the stage with their performance. High school senior, Zoey Blackman, who played Anna, used her talents and quick wit comedy to take on the role. Her energy was always high and never once broke character. Her voice was very strong, along with her acting choices. High school junior, Ava Connelly, who portrayed Elsa, carried herself with grace and poise as she entered the stage. She truly is a queen. During songs like, "Let it Go," and "Monster" her quality of voice was superb. The sister dynamic was beautiful to watch. You can really see the "True Love" the two girls had for each other. Kristoff, played by Evan Alena, meshed well with his fellow actors. Olaf, played by Emma Moffett, left the audience's hearts melted. She portrayed the role in a lighthearted, fun way.

The supporting characters Bulda (Sydney Steiner) and Pabbie (Gavin Dina) kept the audience on the edge of their seats during their big number "Fixer Upper." The ensemble groups were a huge part of the production. Four different groups of students had their own stand-out moments that added to the story. One section of the actors was a part of Anna's freezing while the other was in the ocean during the shipwreck. It really looked like the entire cast was crystal clear in their devotion to the show.

The technical aspects of this show were so creative and spectacular. "Team Sven" started out as a cardboard box and stick, turning into a real-life creature that is just too awesome to explain. You'll have to just come to see for yourself!  The lighting, sets and more than half of the orchestra were student-run.  The creativity of this production was off the charts!

There truly wasn't anything "icy" about this production of Eastern's "Frozen: The Broadway Musical!"
