Actors and actresses at Sussex Middle School will be building snowmen and ice castles on Thursday and Friday, March 26, and March 27, at 7:30 p.m., and Saturday, March 28, at 2 p.m. Winter is a magical time of year, and you can’t “let it go” when it comes to seeing the many memorable moments in Frozen, Jr.
In a box office achievement fit for royalty, Disney's “Frozen” was the highest grossing animated movie in Disney history until last year's Frozen 2 officially topped the charts as the highest-grossing animated film in history.
Frozen is the story of two young princesses who spend their time building snowmen, and having fun in their Arendelle castle. However, when Elsa's power to freeze things accidentally causes harm to her sister Anna, Elsa becomes fearful of her power. This fear forces Elsa to isolate herself leaving Anna feeling alone and confused. After Elsa becomes Queen, the two sisters reconnect but Anna's desire to marry and Elsa's refusal of a marriage blessing ignites a storm causing Elsa to flee the kingdom. With help from an ice harvester, reindeer and snowman, Anna sets out to find her sister. Love will find a way, and save the day in this Disney classic. The popular Oscar winning song, Let it Go, leads the Frozen soundtrack.
