That’s 500 performances of Frozen in Oz!

The Wednesday September 21st evening performance at Crown Theatre Perth marked the 500th performance of Disney’s Frozen in Australia; an incredible milestone reached during the final leg of the hit Broadway musical’s two-year tour spanning Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth. The Australian run of Frozen concludes at Crown Theatre, Perth on Sunday 13 November 2022.

Frozen has welcomed over 750,000 Australians into the magical snow-capped world of Arendelle since the curtain lifted for the very first time at Sydney’s Capitol Theatre in December 2020. The words “let it go” have been sung 13,500 times and Olaf has given 2,500 warm hugs.

Jemma Rix who plays the role of Elsa said, “We are so excited to celebrate 500 shows here at Crown Theatre Perth. It has been an incredible journey from being the first big musical to open globally since the pandemic began all the way through to now. This company of performers, crew and management has shown incredible resilience and we are thrilled to be able to continue to tell the inspiring tale of sisterhood to audiences all over the country.”
