For the first time in forever, the Disney Broadway musical nominated for three Tony Awards graces the Family Theatre stage. Tucked away in the kingdom of Arendelle live Princesses Anna and Elsa. Anna is a fearless, spirited dreamer, and Elsa, while timid, harnesses magic in her fingertips capable of creating worlds of ice and snow. When an icy outburst causes a never-ending winter and Elsa makes a quick retreat, Anna sets out to find her. Along the way, she meets ice salesman Kristoff, his reindeer sidekick Sven, and a loveable snowman named Olaf. Young and the young at heart will fall in love with this story of discovering your true power. Held at 506 West Michigan Street in Duluth.
