EntertainmentWhat's On

For the first time in forever

By Maria Gregoriou

With snow falling all around Cyprus last Thursday, some of us surely starting singing ‘Do You Want to Build a Snowman’ or started to hit some high notes with ‘Let It Go,’; this is how much the Disney animated comedy adventure Frozen has become a part of our culture!

But there is only one drawback when it comes to the story about two sisters and a lot of snow: although the animated characters do put on a cracking-good performance, it isn’t live, and if you have a little one who wants to interact with Olaf, no matter how big the big screen is, it just won’t cut it.

That is why the Limassol Theatre Arts School is putting on staged performances of Frozen from tomorrow until Sunday.

The children in the performance are from five to 18-years-old (so the cuteness, as well as talent, is guaranteed).

Also, this may be the first staged performances to ever hit any theatre, so you could be one of the first people to say you saw it live.

In case you don’t remember all the goings on in the Disney film, the two sisters are Anna and Elsa. Elsa has a special gift (or curse as she sees it): she can magically create frost and snow.

When she accidentally injures Anna while playing in the winter wonderland she has created, the King and Queen (ah, yes, we forgot to tell you, the sisters are princesses) take Elsa to some trolls in the woods who made her all better again.

After the king and queen die while on a trip away, Elsa is crowned queen. All the commotion makes her anxious and her secret is revealed.

She runs away, creates a snow castle for herself, but her little sister goes after her to ask her to return the kingdom to its original state (as she had brought on a never-ending winter).

In the end sisterly love prevails, as good also does, and the cold doesn’t really bother them anymore.

So get booking your places, as the tickets are selling fast and the school has had to put on an extra performance to meet the demand.
