Frozen – Live at the Hyperion was first announced in September 2015 as a replacement for the venue's previous musical, Aladdin: A Musical Spectacular, which played from 2003 to 2016.
The production is directed by Liesl Tommy, written by Tony-nominated Chad Beguelin, and features sets by Tony-nominated scenic designer Robert Brill. Jason Michael Webb serves as the musical supervisor and arranger. Puppets for the show were designed by Michael Curry.
Confirming a report by Stitch Kingdom made in February, Disney Cruise Line confirmed that it will be replacing Toy Story with a Frozen themed production titled Frozen, A Musical Spectacular which will debut on the Disney Wonder beginning November 10, 2016, along with additional enhancements to the ship.
In the Disney California Adventure version of the show, young Anna and Elsa are portrayed by adult actresses, whereas the Disney Wonder version will utilize puppets to portray the sisters up until adulthood.
