For its next show, Theater in the Park is venturing into uncharted territory with “Frozen Jr.” from December 13-15 at Anne Arundel Community College (AACC).
A story of love and acceptance between Princesses Anna and Elsa, “Frozen Jr.” was released this year by Music Theater International, and Theater in the Park is the first local company to do the show.
“Frozen Jr.” is based on the Disney film written by Jennifer Lee, who directed the film with Chris Buck. Bringing the production to life are more than 43 kids ages 8 to 14. Audiences will also recognize their favorite “Frozen” tunes by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez.
Atticus Boidy will direct the show, with Kristin Rigsby serving as choreographer, Trevor Greenfield as music director, and Marci Sank as stage manager.
Theater in the Park normally performs in Holy Grounds at the Severna Park Community Center, but the group sought a bigger venue for this show. They chose the Kauffman Theater at the Pascal Center for the Arts at AACC.
Showtimes for “Frozen Jr.” are December 13 at 7:00pm, December 14 at 8:00pm and December 15 at 4:00pm. Tickets are $12 for reserved seating and $15 for premium seating.
A younger cast from Theater in the Park will perform in “Lion King Kids” on the same weekend. That cast consists of 35 kids ages 5 to 9.
