Disney Theatrical has announced that they are delaying the London opening of the much anticipated Frozen the musical at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane as a result of uncertainties due to COVID-19.
In a statement issued by Disney Theatrical, it was announced that the opening of Frozen the musical at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane, London would be delayed and a new opening date announced in due course.
We are of course saddened that yet another big London opening is being delayed, but think Disney being cautious and not presenting a new date until they are able to ascertain the state of restrictions imposed by the government and the initial results of the first stage of vaccinations is a wise one.
In their statement, Disney said:-
“As we start a new year, we are all excited about the time when we will be back in the theatre together enjoying the magic of live performance. In light of the recent government implementation of a full national lockdown, it has become necessary to postpone the opening of Frozen, which was planned for April, just a little longer.
The health and wellbeing of our audiences, cast and crew are paramount, and we cannot wait to share the production with you as soon as we are safely able to without current social distancing regulations. Therefore, we have taken the decision to temporarily take the show off sale, and to reassess our timeline. We will announce our new opening date as soon as possible.
Guests do not need to do anything at the moment – they will be contacted at the earliest opportunity with their revised performance date. We will do this in chronological order so that guests booked into performances in April and May will be the first to be notified of their new date. If the new date is not suitable, guests will be able to request an exchange into an alternative performance or to request a credit voucher, or a refund if necessary.
We would like to thank you for your ongoing patience and understanding in these difficult times – we are doing everything we can to cause as little inconvenience to you as possible. We promise the wait will be worth it.
An incredible group of people has been working together to build Frozen for the West End. Take a sneak peek of their progress here.”
