Following the announcement that Disney Cruise Line has added a live production dubbed “Frozen: A Musical Spectacular” to its onboard activities, it has been revealed that the cruise line has hired a talented crew to make the musical something unforgettable.
According to FoxNews.com, Tony-nominated Broadway director Sheryl Kaller has been tasked with leading a crew that also includes Broadway writer Sara Wordsworth and Broadway choreographer Josh Prince. The combination of industry veterans will help tell the “Frozen” story through the musical soundtrack and the choreography.
In addition to the focus on telling the "Frozen" story, Tony Award-winning costume designer Paloma Young has been added to help make the small cast of 18 performers feel like an entire army of characters. Designer Michael Curry also used his Broadway experience to design the puppets for key players such as Sven the reindeer and Olaf the snowman.
The crew behind the scenes of “Frozen: A Musical Spectacular” also consulted with the original film’s creative team to help make the live production feel as authentic as possible, including help from songwriters Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez.
The “Frozen: A Musical Spectacular” will debut on the Disney Wonder cruise ship during a four-night Western Caribbean cruise from Galveston, Texas, to Cozumel, Mexico, on Nov. 10. The live production will take place inside the ship’s 977-seat Walt Disney Theatre, and will take place on each subsequent sailing.
