Frozen, Disney's Hit Musical!

Happy Sunday friends.

It's starting to get HOT here in North Georgia.  Almost to the point where my mind (and body) automatically say, "Don't go out there."  You know - that kind of hot weather.

It's time for swimming pools, lemonaide, popsicles, and lake parties.

That's why I was so happy to see Frozen, Disney's hit Broadway Musical come to The Fox Theatre in Atlanta this week.

Frozen opened Thursday night, and I was able to catch their second performance Friday night.  It was so good to visit Arendelle - a FROZEN Arendelle.  It was a great break from the Southern heat.

All my friends were there - King Agnarr and Queen Iduna, Anna, and Elsa - just to name a few.  I also ran into Olaf, Kristoff, Svan, Oken, and sadly even - Hans who still showed up even after so many years of losing the battle.

Frozen will play in Atlanta through June 12.  There are still quite a few performances left, and you really should go see it (even if you don't have littles - I'm an empty nester, but dedicated Disney fan).  Our audience (I'm guessing because it was a Friday night) was filled with so many sweet littles - mostly in their white Else gowns or their sweet Arendelle Anna dresses.  It was fun to have so much excitement and buzz in the theatre.  There was a soft murmur throughout the night from little ones singing along or asking their parents questions.  I loved that.  (We had one Anna behind us, and as we were walking to our car, four little Elsas were posing for pictures in front of the Fox for their Moms.  Super cute!)

If you've ever seen any of Frozen's TV appearances or YouTube videos, you know how wonderful this story is live.  Our publicized Anna and Else were out due to a Covid case, but our fill-ins were SUPERB and perfect.  (Honestly, I was so happy we got to see Caelan Creaser as Elsa and Berklea Going as Anna.  Please follow their Instagram acounts.  They are amazing actresses that don't always get stage time.)

Speaking of the actors in this traveling troupe, I want to give a little heads up here for those of you taking your littles to see the show.  Disney is famous for their diversity practices, and Frozen proves to be no exception.  The characters you see on stage will not reflect the ones in the movies.  King Agnarr is African American.  Queen Iduna is Asian, and both Anna and Elsa are Asian as well.  All four actors are SUPERB in their roles, and honestly, a great actor can transcend race to make you forget all about the animated versions of themselves.  I only mention it here because your littles may not understand.

Frozen is true to the story line of the movie (someone did mention to me that they thought this musical gives a nod at the beginning to Frozen 2), and all your favorite songs are included.  Do not blink during Let it Go or you may miss one of the biggest gasps of the evening.  Sometimes theatre just blows your expectations away - Frozen does this quite a few times when showcasing and highlighting Elsa's powers.

The stage sets are amazing, the costumes beautiful, and the presence of Sven is magical!  When Sven debuted during our performance, the entire theatre gasped and then cheered and clapped.  This is why I love musical theatre - it's so real and so genuine.

Frozen run abouts two hours long with an intermission.  Our show started late, but try to be on time as most theatres will hold you back for opening numbers if you are not on time.  Frozen will play Tuesdays through Thursdays at 7:30 p.m., Fridays at 8 p.m., Saturdays at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m., and Sundays at 1 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.

VIP Ticket Packages, which include prime seat locations and a VIP Fan Pack, are also available. Tickets are available by phone at (855) 285-8499, online at, and at the Fox Theatre Box Office (660 Peachtree Street NE, Atlanta, Georgia 30308). Orders for groups of 10 or more may be placed by calling Fox Theatre at (855)-285-8499.

Also keep in mind this is a very popular show.  Our show was packed, and the lines to get in were extremely long even 45 minutes after doors opened.  Parking is ample around The Fox Theatre with most lots costing between $20 and $30 for the evening.

So what are you waiting for?

Georgia is growing hotter each day, and though you may love summer like Olaf, it is such a nice break to visit Elsa inside her frozen castle and Arendelle in the winter.  Besides that, Oaken has some nice things to help keep you warm!
