From the producers of Aladdin and The Lion King, Disney’s new hit musical Frozen will arrive in Australia in December 2020. Based on the Oscar-winning movie, Frozen will premiere at the Capitol Theatre in Sydney with an all-star Australian cast, grand sets, gorgeous costumes and sensational special effects.
An inspiring tale of sisterhood and true love set in the icy kingdom of Arendelle, Frozen the Musical features songs from the original film plus an expanded score with a dozen new numbers. It’s an unforgettable theatrical experience.
The show will be brought to the stage by Tony Award winning director Michael Grandage. The cast includes Courtney Monsma, who has previously appeared in Aladdin and Mamma Mia, as Anna. Jemma Rix, best known for her role as Elphaba in Wicked, will play Elsa. Helpmann Award winner Matt Lee stars as Olaf.
Tickets and performances
Frozen the Musical opens on December 1, with evening and matinee performances Tuesday to Sunday.
Award-winning performer and Sydney local Matt Lee will be starring as Olaf in Frozen the Musical.
Here’s his quick guide to his favourite things about the city:
What is your favourite place to get coffee in Sydney?
I live above the famous motorcycle repair and clothing store Deus Ex Machina which also has a cool cafe attached. You can find me drinking coffee and eating their amazing karaage chicken several days of the week.
What does your ideal weekend in Sydney look like?
On Saturdays, when I’m not working, my partner and I try to get out for breakfast and enjoy the morning sun. After which, we’d head off to find a hidden cocktail bar for afternoon drinks. On Sundays, we get to the local supermarket for fresh produce to cook up a delicious afternoon lamb roast whilst catching up on all of our trashy TV.
What is your best theatre memory in Sydney?
I have had the opportunity to perform in some world class productions here in Sydney. Performing with Hugh Jackman in the Boy from Oz at the old Entertainment Centre was an absolute dream. Getting the opportunity to play Chris in Cameron Macintosh's Miss Saigon at the Lyric Theatre was always on my bucket list, but my favourite has to be getting to tap dance up the proscenium arch in Mary Poppins at the amazing Capitol theatre. This was definitely a highlight of my career.
Why do you think Sydney is a great city to visit?
Hands down, Sydney has one of the best harbours in the world with iconic landmarks and jaw-dropping views. The Harbour Bridge, Opera House and Sydney Tower are legendary points of interest for anyone from around the world. Bondi, Manly and Coogee beaches are definitely some of Sydney’s most loved tourist destinations. But it's the local cafes and boutique shopping stores in Paddington, Darlinghurst and Newtown; for me, they are the true gems of the city.
