Frozen the Musical is coming to London! Like a lot of families, the Disney blockbuster exploded into our lives when the first film came out and has never really left. Endless fancy dress, soundtracks on repeat and a lot of blue toys!  So, when I heard about the musical version on Broadway and now London, I was keen to get tickets. We were lucky enough to go to visit New York last year, so we saw the show on Broadway and it really was amazing.

As the show has now come to England and is opening in October 2020 at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane London, I thought I’d share what we thought of the show and all the details for how you can get tickets.

What Age is the Frozen Musical Suitable for?

First up, the recommended age was 8+ on Broadway and with a running time of over 2 hours, I was a little hesitant about taking my daughter. However, she sat mesmerised throughout, she had only recently turned five at the time, yet there were plenty others around her age. I have just checked the age advice for the London show and they have adjusted it. “FROZEN is recommended for a general audience aged 6 and up. Children under the age of 3 will not be admitted into the theatre.”

Is Frozen The Musical Different To The Film?

The story starts with Anna and Elsa as little girls and immediately you realise that although you know the characters, one of the great things about the show is that its not just a mirror of the films plot. You get to see different parts of their story, while the characters still feel familiar, alongside the films iconic moments. I have to confess when Elsa sang Let It Go, watching the awe on my little girls face, immersed in the amazing light show that accompanies it, I did well up. It really is a wow moment and worth going to the show for that alone. There are lots of new songs written specifically for the musical and they blend well into the story. We were so impressed with the acting and choreography and as you would imagine the costumes are stunning, with an enchanting set.
