Frozen, Jr., the musical is only available in limited release for schools to perform. It is currently playing on Broadway but has not been released for regional theatres. The leasing agency, MTI, gave high schools and middle schools the unique opportunity to produce this musical. It includes all of the songs and dialogue from the movie plus a few surprise songs. It differs from the Broadway version in that it will be performed with piano and soundtrack rather than orchestration, and it is shorter.
The original Broadway production of Frozen was directed by Michael Grandage and produced by Disney Theatrical Productions. Disney’s Frozen Jr. is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.MTIShows..com.
