ROXBURY, NJ - The wildly popular Disney movie has been adapted for the stage and the Eisenhower Middle Drama Club is bringing Frozen Jr. to the Roxbury Community.
Join Anna, Elsa, Olaf and all of your favorite Frozen characters as they embark on an epic, ice-filled journey of self-discovery, camaraderie, and the real meaning of true love. This musical includes favorite songs such as “Love is an Open Door”, “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” and “Let it Go” as well as wonderful new songs from the Broadway production.
Jessica Harrison-Calderon is back in the director’s seat for her 16th drama production at Eisenhower. If you have attended any of her previous shows, you know that Frozen, Jr. will not disappoint! "The EMS Drama Club is so excited to bring Frozen Jr. to life on the EMS stage. The students have worked hard and are putting their hearts into this production." Harrison-Calderon said.
Harrison-Calderon shared that Frozen Jr. was chosen as this year's musical for numerous reasons. She felt it was a great opportunity for EMS students to perform in a musical that they know and love with characters that they grew up with. In addition, the show’s special effects and fast pace are a chance for the directors to bring fantastic new and interesting creative challenges to life.
