Good news for Den­ver fans of Broad­way mu­si­cals: Sin­gle tick­ets for the pre-Broad­way en­gage­ment of Dis­ney’s “Frozen,” which runs Aug. 17-Oct. 1 at the Buell Theatre, will go on sale start­ing at 10 a.m. on May 1.

The brand new mu­si­cal, from Dis­ney The­atri­cal Pro­duc­tions (“Mary Pop­pins,” “Beauty and Beast”), fol­lows Dis­ney-based Broad­way mu­si­cals such as “The Lion King” and “The Lit­tle Mer­maid” in us­ing Den­ver as a test­ing ground be­fore hitting the road for The Great White Way (and, typ­i­cally, the rest of the coun­try af­ter that).

Tick­ets are $25-$115 with a limit of eight tick­ets per ac­count, ac­cord­ing to the Den­ver Cen­ter for the Per­form­ing Arts. For more in­for­ma­tion and to sign up for alerts, visit den­ver­

“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,” the DCPA said in a press state­ment. “Like the Dis­ney The­atri­cal Broad­way mu­si­cals that have come be­fore it, it is a full evening of the­ater and is ex­pected to run two and a half hours.”

Af­ter run­ning (and tweak­ing) it in Den­ver, pro­duc­ers plan to open the fin­ished ver­sion of “Frozen” on Broad­way in spring 2018 at the St. James Theatre, where it will join Dis­ney The­atri­cal’s other Broad­way shows “The Lion King” and “Aladdin” — the lat­ter of which plays the Buell April 6-28, 2018.

Cast­ing and ex­act Broad­way dates for “Frozen” will be an­nounced at a fu­ture date, ac­cord­ing to the DCPA.
