The world premiere new musical, "Wicked Frozen! A Musical Parody Mashup of 'Wicked' and 'Frozen' Written by Two People Who Have Never Seen 'Wicked' or 'Frozen'", will be presented this November at the famed People's Improv Theatre (PIT)! After an awardsweeping run during the 2014 West Village Musical Theatre Festival this summer, the fanfavorite short musical has been expanded to a hilarious sixtyminute piece.
"Wicked Frozen" is an original musical mashup based on what creators Toby Singer and Zoe Farmingdale imagined "Wicked" and "Frozen" to be about, without ever having seen either show. In mythical ScandiNorFinland, two witchprincess sisters, Elsaba and Glindanna, go to magic ice school for royal people, where they must learn to control their freezing powers. Can the sisters learn to work together? Will the beautiful but vacant Prince Ikea come to their rescue? Will the world be destroyed by fossil fuels? What actually happens when Elsaba takes that glove thing off?
The production is directed by Michael Rau (www.michaelrau.com), with musical direction by Toby Singer. The ensemble cast includes Bethany Nicole Taylor, Emily Lessard, Jen Connor, Kathleen Armenti, Lucas Brady, Matt Rogers, Meagan Wells, Rachel Valencich, Will Jacobs, and Zoe Farmingdale.
"Wicked Frozen" will run for six performances only at The PIT (123 E. 24th St). Tickets can be purchased for $10 online at www.thepitnyc.com or for $12 at the door. $1 student tickets are available, space permitting. Shows run: Sunday 11/9, 3pm (Preview Performance); Tuesday 11/11, 9:30pm; Friday 11/14, 7pm; Monday 11/17, 8pm; Thursday 11/20, 11pm; and Saturday 11/22, 9:30pm.
