There are currently two stage versions of the 2013 children’s movie in pre-production as well as one that has already opened, giving parents the perfect opportunity to create an unforgettable ‘Frozen’ themed holiday for their kids.

According to the New York Times this week, there is a stage adaptation of Princess Elsa’s adventure under development for Broadway -which is expected to debut in Spring 2018- as well as a live take on the show for Disney’s Cruise Line on board the Wonder vessel.

This comes just weeks after the curtain lifted on the spectacular Frozen stage production at Disney’s California Adventure park.

The show premiered on 27 May and there are currently five performances daily at the Hyperion theatre in the American theme park, according to the New York Times, who also said that more than 100 actors are involved on stage and that Tony award nominee Liesl Tommy has been enlisted to directed.

The Broadway show has Alex Timbers lined up to take the director’s seat and it is understood that it’s first pre-Broadway run will happen in Denver late next summer, just months before its planned Broadway debut in spring the following year.

This will be the only version of the epic feel-good musical where new songs will be introduced, deviating slightly from the book and screenplay, the New York Times reports.

They also report that Robert A. Iger, the chief executive of Disney, recently revealed at a conference that he had sat in on a run through of the Broadway-bound show- signalling that it’s productions is well underway.

Of course, this all comes in addition to the characters appearances at the Disney on Ice shows as well as featuring in their theme parks and parades.

It’s a Frozen world, we are just living in it.  So if your kids are fans of the show, it’s time to pack your bags and let them experience the live version of it while taking in a holiday on land or on the high seas.
