Feld Entertainment, Inc., the worldwide leader in producing live touring family entertainment, is bringing the Academy Awardwinning and number one animated feature film of all time, Disney’s Frozen, to life, in its 34‘h Disney On Ice spectacular. Disney On Ice presents Frozen Presented by Stonyfield YoKids Organic Yogurt will appear Jan. 21 – 25 at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, IL., and Jan. 28 Feb. 8 at Chicago’s United Center.

The Academy Awardwinning tale will be told live for the first time in this production, capturing the dynamic of two royal sisters, Anna and Elsa. Anna, a girl with an extraordinary heart, embarks on an epic journey to find her sister, the magical Elsa, who is determined to remain secluded as she finally feels free to test the limits of her powers. Rugged mountain man Kristoff, his loyal reindeer Sven, the lovable and hilarious snowman Olaf and the mystical trolls help Anna along the way in this story about love conquering fear. Audiences will get to sing along with such musical masterpieces as “Let it Go,” “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” and Fixer Upper.

“In our more than 30 years qf producing Disney On Ice shows, Feld Entertainment has been waiting for a film like this,” says producer Nicole Feld. “While it might seem obvious that Frozen is well suited for the ice, this Disney On Ice production will touch audiences emotionally through innovative show elements and world-class skating.”

Frozen directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee add, “Seeing audiences around the world embrace Frozen has been the experience of a lifetime. And to now have the chance to consult with the talented team at Feld Entertainment and watch their creation come to life on ice, is thrilling.”

In Disney On Ice presents Frozen Presented by YoKids, Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse take the audience through the magical story based in Arendelle, with special appearances by beloved Disney princesses and favorite characters from Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story and Finding Nemo and Disney’s The Lion King, who come together that true love IS the greatest power of-all.

Director Patty Vincent says, “Our goal is to showcase these heart warming character’s in a way that allows the audience to cheer and sing along throughout this emotional journey.”

To createa completely immersive experience for the audience, the set design will encompass the space from the ice surface up through the air, drawing everyone into the story and closer to the characters.

Families will feel that they are trekking up to the North Mountains with Anna, Kristoff and Sven, and they will tangibly experience the storm inside Elsa. Elsa’s magic will be enhanced by state-of-the art special effects while her emotions will be conveyed through powerful skating.
