Kids First Theater has been rehearsing for several weeks preparing for this epic production of Frozen Jr. (Frozen 2 being released shortly thereafter in theaters.)
The enchanting modern classic from Disney is ready for the Youngstown area and the Oakland Center is bringing it to you first! Frozen JR. is based on the 2018 Broadway musical, and brings Elsa, Anna, and the magical land of Arendelle to life, onstage. The show features all of the memorable songs from the animated film, with music and lyrics by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, plus five new songs written for the Broadway production.
