Elsa, Anna, Kristoff, Olaf, and Sven are making their way to the Merced Theatre on Feb. 28 and Feb. 29 where Weaver Performing Arts will be performing the musical version of the original movie, Frozen, including poplular songs, such as “Do You Want to Build a Snowman” and “Let It Go.”
Join local student actors and their families as Anna, Elsa, and the magic of Arendelle come to life onstage. Showtimes are at 7 p.m. on both days, and also at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 29.
Their story is one of true love and acceptance between sisters. It begins with Elsa’s coronation celebration but when Anna asks for Elsa’s blessing over her marriage to a prince she just met, things take a drastic and chilling turn. Elsa flees Arendelle in an attempt to come to grips with her powers away from the public eye. Anna teams up with Kristoff, Sven, and Olaf to bring Elsa back and release their kingdom from the eternal winter that Elsa accidentally started.
Throughout the danger these two sisters face during their epic adventures they both discover their hidden potential and, more importantly, just how powerful the bond of sisterhood can be.
Weaver Performing Arts has been performing musicals with 4th through 8th grade students since 2003. Last year, Weaver Performing Arts production of Disney’s Mary Poppins Jr. was performed before more than 5,000 audience members.
Frozen features a cast and crew of more than 60 students from all three schools in the Weaver Union School District.
The Merced Theatre is located at 301 W. Main Street in Merced.
