Following its extensive £45 million refurbishment and the forced extended closure due to Covid-19, the iconic Theatre Royal Drury Lane finally gets to reopen its doors in August 2021 to host the much anticipated stage adaptation of Disney's 2013 mega movie hit Frozen The Musical which now transfers to the West End following its hugely successful opening on Broadway.
This is the heart warming tale of the strong bond felt between the two Princess sisters, Anna and Elsa whose relationship comes under threat when Elsa, who has the magical ability to create snow and ice and freeze everything she touches is forced to isolate from the rest of the world as her peculiar talent has thrown the Kingdom of Arendelle into a perpetual state of winter. After assembling a small and loyal team of allies, Anna sets out to find Elsa, put an end to winter and to finally bring her long lost sister home
The stage adaptation of Frozen will feature a musical score that includes all of the family friendly songs from the movie including 'Let It Go', 'Do You Want To Build A Snowman?', and 'For The First Time In Forever' as well as new additional songs that will delight all of the family in what promises to be a truly unique theatrical experience that will surely thaw even the coldest of hearts.

Although demand for this hugely anticipated show will initially exceed supply, the Theatre Royal Drury Lane is a huge venue with four tiers that all need to be filled for 8 shows every single week meaning that there is a good chance that tickets to Frozen The Musical will eventually find a level and both off peak and mid week performances should hopefully then bring some value and eventually some cheap and maybe even discount prices.
Despite being on the second floor of this huge venue, the seats in the upper circle do offer a pretty good and clear view of the stage and booking tickets to Frozen The Musical in this section is ideal for those on a budget. Although there is often value to be found in the upper circle and cheap Frozen tickets can be sourced here, it is unusual to find discounts in this section as larger venues tend to save those for either the stalls and dress circle areas of the theatre or group bookings.The balcony section is very high up and possibly not suitable for people who are not comfortable with heights or who suffer from vertigo. It is always recommended that you check the seating plan prior to purchase so that you have absolute clarity about where in the venue you will be seated.
Due to the family friendly nature of this show it is likely that tickets to Frozen The Musical will be in huge demand during peak periods such as school holidays and weekends so bargain hunters should avoid these times if possible when looking for value in the price. The quieter months of November, January and February should hopefully see downward movements in the ticket price (especially in the cheaper sections of the theatre) and the weeks that follow on from school holidays consistently bring savings for family shows as peoples finances can sometimes to be stretched during these times but seats still need to be filled.
If you book Frozen The Musical tickets through a third party such as a website or the shops in and around Leicester Square there is a good chance especially during peak periods that there will be a booking fee included in the price. This is because the producers of the show are confident that they can sell this show and fill the venue at full price due to the sheer public demand and therefore do not offer any discounted rates to agents who then are forced to charge a booking fee to make a profit.
The good news though is that a venue the size of the Theatre Royal Drury Lane needs to be filled for 8 shows every single week of the year and to do that there will always be weeks that present a challenge, and it is these times where the producers will offer agents negotiated discounted rates that they in turn can pass on to the consumer often resulting in some great value for money. When booking West End theatre tickets through a third party website it is always worth checking that the agent is a member of the Society of Ticket Agents and Retailers (STAR) to ensure complete transparency and peace of mind over your purchase.
Generally speaking the seats in the stalls do offer a very good view of the stage however from row S and onwards there is a small restriction to the view from the overhang from the royal circle which in turn also has some restrictions from the overhang from the grand circle from row H. The price of tickets to Frozen The Musical in these seats should however reflect this no matter how small the restriction and certainly in the cut off rows of S in the stalls and H in the royal circle this can mean excellent value for money to the consumer and is well worth exploring. Any restrictions in the upper circle or balcony though should be looked at with caution and possibly avoided. It is always highly recommended to check the seating plan thoroughly before booking tickets to ensure full transparency over your purchase.
