This is a show for the entire family, and one not to be missed.
When their kingdom becomes trapped in perpetual winter, fearless Anna (Katie Till of Newtown Square) joins forces with mountaineer Kristoff (Master Jones IV of Philadelphia) and his reindeer sidekick to find Anna’s sister, Snow Queen Elsa (Emma Speck of Drexel Hill) and break her icy spell. Although their epic journey leads them to encounters with mystical trolls, a comedic snowman (Nicholas Borgesi of Havertown), harsh conditions, and magic at every turn, Anna and Kristoff bravely push onward in a race to save their kingdom from winter’s cold grip.
Director Sarah DeNight of Philadelphia is excited to oversee the production. “This is the first time Upper Darby Summer Stage has presented this show and really, it’s one of the first times the Junior version has been performed in this region. Audiences will love it because the show truly reflects the Summer Stage message found in the song “To Fill the World with Love.” In fact, the lyrics of one of the songs in the show aligns perfectly with the Summer Stage message: ‘I take this warmth within and send it up above. Goodbye to dark and fear; let’s fill the world with light and love.’ We hope every audience member will walk away inspired not only by the visually stunning production elements but by the positive message.”
Upper Darby Summer Stage and the Upper Darby Performing Arts Center are jointly sponsored by the Upper Darby Township Mayor and Council and the Upper Darby School District Board of School Directors through the Department of Recreation and Leisure Services.
