Frozen Broadway Synopsis
Fresh off the heels of the 2013 Academy Award-winning animated movie, Frozen follows the story of two royal sisters called Anna and Elsa. At a young age, they were torn apart by a mysterious secret. Elsa struggles to discover her voice and control her powers within, while Anna sets off on an epic adventure.
