TCOE ready to ‘let it go’

Tulare County Office of Education’s Theatre Company set to perform popular Frozen JR musical this month

@TheSunGazette

TULARE COUNTY – Tickets are now on sale for the Theatre Company’s fall production of Frozen JR. The musical, which will be performed four times November 21, 22, and 23 at the L.J. Williams Theater in Visalia, is based on the 2018 Broadway show featuring Princesses Elsa and Anna and their magical land of Arendelle. The musical incorporates all of the memorable songs from the popular animated Disney film, plus five new songs written for the Broadway production.

A story of true love and acceptance between sisters, Frozen JR expands on the emotional relationship and journey between Princesses Elsa and Anna. When faced with danger, the two discover their hidden potential and the powerful bond of sisterhood. Frozen JR features all of the beloved characters in the familiar story loaded with magic, adventure, and plenty of humor.

“One of the things I enjoy most about my job is watching our students find love and acceptance through the magic of musical theatre,” said Charlotte Garcia Da Rosa, Theatre Company choreographer, who is directing the show. “These kids join their voices in song and feel united. They work hard to perfect dance moves they never thought they could achieve, and feel accomplished as they turn faster and leap higher. They learn teamwork, humility, perseverance, and compassion as they all strive to bring their best performance on stage and their best attitudes off stage.”

The production of Frozen JR features a cast of 95 Tulare County students. An additional 37 young performers will appear in the Let It Snow preshow, which features a variety of holiday classics. For more information about Frozen JR, call the Theatre Company at (559) 651-1482.
