Amazing news! Broadway's Frozen the Musical has come to Orange County! I don't know about you, but I am so happy that it has come to Costa Mesa's Segerstrom Center for the Arts. This will be my daughter's first time going to a Broadway musical!
Disney’s Frozen, the Tony®-nominated Best Musical, will play a three-week premiere engagement at Segerstrom Hall at Segerstrom Center for the Arts. FROZEN performs February 1st through the 19th, 2022 at Segerstrom Center for the Arts.
I had the opportunity to see it this week with my six year old daughter and it was everything I hoped for. The cast was of course AMAZING, the music, the scenery, and just everything about the entire show was perfect. Most importantly, being able to see it in my home theater was super special. I just love the Segerstrom Center for the Arts. It's a great theater, with great amenities located nearby.
Now...what about the details.

Listen to the Soundtrack or Watch the Movie before you go!
The music is great! Almost identical to the animated Disney movie, however there are some new songs that are only in the musical. And the storyline is a little different to make it adapt to the stage.
Is FROZEN the Musical good for kids?
Frozen the Musical is recommended for kids ages 6 and up. It would make the perfect first musical for your kids to experience. If they like Frozen the movie, then they will love the show.
My only warning is that the night shows end very late, so if your child has an early bedtime, or gets tired before 9pm, I would consider going to a matinee. my daughter is 6, and loves to stay out late. And even she was starting to fall asleep near the end of the show. it was nearly 10pm before the end. And I did notice that many families who brought children under the age of 6 ended up leaving at intermission.
FROZEN Photo Ops at the Segerstrom
As with most show at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts, there is a special photo op for the Frozen Musical. You can find this fun backdrop on the second floor. There were also fun photo props available and "First Broadway Show" stickers for the kids.
