The award-winning West End production of Disney’s Frozen has been extended for the final time, and will close on September 8th 2024.
The beloved musical, which has music and lyrics by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, and book by Jennifer Lee, has been seen by over 2.8 million people since it opened at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane back in September 2021.
Based on the groundbreaking Disney film – which celebrated its 10th anniversary last year – the show brings to life a world of “sumptuous beauty, humour and iconic music in a jaw-dropping production to melt hearts of all ages”.
Samantha Barks, who originated the role of Elsa in the West End, will return to the production in February following maternity leave, where she will perform alongside Laura Dawkes (Anna), Jammy Kasongo (Kristoff), Craig Gallivan (Olaf), Oliver Ormson (Hans), and Richard Frame (Duke of Weselton).
The role of Elsa is currently performed by Jenna-Lee James.

In a statement, Director Michael Grandage said, “It has been a joy to be part of the Frozen journey in London. Working with the team at Disney, the brilliant creative team, and the incredible cast have made this one of my happiest theatre experiences.”
“Frozen opened in the UK on the heels of the pandemic, and it was glorious to welcome back audiences, many of whom were coming to the theatre for the first time. To introduce so many to the power of theatre and hopefully cultivate a life-long love for it, has been an immense privilege.”
