Last week I had the chance to see the premier of Frozen – Live at the Hyperion theater. Before I go on, I’ll just start with this… it’s amazing.
As I sat there watching the actor, immersed in the overall production, it really got me thinking. When I was a child, I never saw a live performance of any kind. I remember my first musical: Annie. But again, that was in a movie theater and not a live performance. Trying to think back as far as I can, I don’t know when I finally saw a real live musical. I’m sure there was a musical production or two throughout my school days. But for the most part, I don’t remember anything spectacular.
That’s when it really hit me how lucky, and fortunate, my children are. They’ve been exposed to musicals and live acts their entire lives. We’ve been taking our youngest to Disneyland since she was 15 months old. Our girls are now 7 and 4 and don’t know life without live theatrical experiences. And I’m grateful. They’ve been exposed to so much more than I could have ever imagined as a kid. I love seeing how these inspiring performances bring magic to their already imaginative minds.
When Disneyland announced the big Hyperion Theater change, I think a lot of us were nervous about the future of live performances at the park. After all, Aladdin had made the Hyperion home for over 13 years. However, in true Disney fashion, we didn’t need to worry.
Frozen – Live at the Hyperion was remarkable. From the cast to wardrobe, to animations. I can go on and on about how mesmerizing this production was. It follows the movie in the true sense and doesn’t disappoint. The directors and producers were determined to bring a Broadway style musical to the Disney California Adventure park and they did just that.
Frozen – Live is now playing in Disney California Adventure park at the Hyperion Theater.
