Disney’s Frozen is headed to Broadway. Open casting calls for dancers and singers will be held in both Chicago and Los Angeles
Expected to hit the stage in spring 2018, Tony Award-winning scenic and costume designer Christopher Oram along with Tony Award-winning director Michael Grandage will both be working on the show.
Disney is looking for experienced dancers over the age of 18 to audition in either LA or Chicago January 12-14. Disney released the following statement
This Broadway-bound Frozen, a full-length stage work told in two acts, is the first and only incarnation of the tale that expands upon and deepens its indelible plot and themes through new songs and story material from the film’s creators. Like the Disney Theatrical Broadway musicals that have come before it, it is a full evening of theatre and is expected to run two and a half hours.
Written by a trio of Oscar® winners, Frozen features music and lyrics by the creators of the film score Kristen Anderson-Lopez (In Transit, Up Here) and EGOT-winner Robert Lopez (Avenue Q, The Book of Mormon, Up Here) and a book by Jennifer Lee (Wreck-It Ralph), the film’s screenwriter and director (with Chris Buck). Frozen won 2014 Oscars for Best Song (“Let It Go”) and Best Animated Feature.
Frozen’s director is Michael Grandage, a Tony Award® winner (Red) and director of three Olivier Award-winning Outstanding Musicals (Merrily We Roll Along, Grand Hotel and Guys & Dolls), and Tony winner Christopher Gattelli (Newsies, South Pacific, The King and I) is choreographer.
Don’t miss out on this opportunity of the lifetime to work with such an acclaimed director and costume designer as you travel the world with this amazing show. Grab your resume, sheet music, dance shoes and get your butt in gear to head to one of these open calls.
Nervous? As the words to the popular song from Frozen goes, “let it go.” Go get that part.
