HOW TO GET TICKETS FOR “FROZEN” AT BUELL THEATRE
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 denvercenter.org/frozen.
“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.
