Theatre Review: Frozen Musical – A Fairy Tale Experience Packed With Magical Surprises For Everyone

Disney’s Frozen The Hit Broadway Musical is now available at Sands Theatre at Marina Bay Sands till 19 March 2023. Marking its only Southeast Asian stop in Singapore. Weekender is elated to be invited to catch this musical.

The story of Frozen is well-received among both children and adults for a good reason—instead of taking the conventional route of pairing a princess heroine with a prince hero, it tells a moving story about sisterly love and courage. Needless to say, it is a great musical to watch as a family.

The audience can look forward to stunning stage displays combined with lovely songs and dances. Regardless of whether you are a fan of fairy tales, Frozen the Hit Broadway Musical will not disappoint. If you enjoyed “Frozen” the movie, you should definitely catch this musical as well! Bringing the wintery Arendelle to you and your loved ones. In addition, the outstanding performance made the night truly a night to remember.

Excellent Cast and Music

Did you know that the story of Frozen was loosely based on Hans Christian Anderson’s “The Snow Queen”? But of course, Disney’s Frozen is drastically different in terms of plot and characters. Although it is entirely based on the first Frozen film, the musical does have some slight differences from the film. Aside from performing the popular original Frozen songs such as “Let It Go”, “Do You Wanna Build A Snowman”, and “For The First Time In Forever”, etc., the musical also features 12 brand new songs.

The entire cast consists of 134 performers, with the main cast starring Jemma Rix as Elsa, Sarah O’Connor as Anna, Matt Lee as “Olaf”, Brendan Xavier as “Kristoff”, and Thomas McGuane as “Hans”.

In its Singapore stop, the Frozen musical is casting 6 local child actors. Pay attention to the child stars playing young Elsa and Anna, and you may be able to recognise some familiar faces or voices.

Highlights of The Musical

The child actors that played young Elsa and Anna put up a remarkable live performance. Their adorable bubbliness brought smiles to our faces.

Grown-up Elsa and Anna are just as, if not more impressive. We were blown away by their powerful singing, creative choreography, and their split-second costume changes, which drew surprised gasps and cheers from the audience crowd.

We also like the non-human characters in the show. How could one not love Olaf the funny snowman? Matt Lee’s superb performance makes it easy to overlook that Olaf is an animated puppet.

And Sven the reindeer never fails to capture our attention even though it does not utter a single line. Did the production recruit a real reindeer for this? Watch the musical to find out! 

Breathtaking Special Effects and Scene Changes

Frozen the musical is perhaps one of the finest examples of how magnificent stage art and seamless scene transitions optimise the limited stage space to create a magical and immersive experience. Watching Elsa build her dazzling ice castle is like relishing in a visual feast.

The costume designs and changes stay mostly faithful to the film, but there are also hidden surprises to be uncovered.

The photo opportunities before and after the show are abundant. You can stay back for the Frozen-themed Fountain and Sound display at Waterfront Promenade along the Shoppes and Marina Bay Sands after the show. Come dressed up if you like and capture memorable moments with friends and loved ones.
