Kilauea School student Darla Squire assumes the role of Anna, and Jazlyn Johnson is Elsa when the curtains rise on Disney’s “Frozen Jr.” at 6 p.m. March 6 in the school’s cafeteria.
Squire and Johnson are part of the 36-member cast which will be on stage when the Kilauea School Drama Club presents the 60-minute musical designed and adapted for middle school-aged performers on March 6 and 7.
“Frozen Jr.” is based on the 2013 Disney film written by Jennifer Lee and directed by Chris Buck and Lee, and the 2018 Broadway adaption directed by Michael Grandage, is presented through special arrangement with, and all materials being provided by Music Theatre International.
The Kilauea School production involves students in grades 4 through 6 from the school’s drama club, and is led by Farrah Krovoza, Jeremy Brown, and Kayti Lathrop.
Magic Calig as Olaf invite people to follow the lighthouse beam and join all of the favorite characters of the adaptation of the top-grossing animated film when they embark on an epic “ice-filled journey of self-discovery, camaraderie, and the real meaning of true love.”
The audience will be guided through this epic journey with favorite Frozen songs, including “Love is an Open Door,” “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?,” and “Let It Go,” as well as some new numbers from the Broadway production.
Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students and will be available at the door.
Proceeds benefit the school’s drama club for its future productions.
Other leading cast members include Jade Bowen portraying Krisoff, and Hannah Kotska as Sven.
The Kilauea School Drama Club is one of the school’s after school clubs funded by Aloha Angels.
“Frozen Jr.” is the group’s fourth musical production.
