As the highly anticipated Australian premiere in Sydney approaches, Frozen has given us even more exciting news – they’ve announced the full cast of incredible performers set to bring Frozen The Musical to life on stage.
Last month we shared the news that the wonderful Jemma Rix and Courtney Monsma will be taking on the much-loved and exciting roles of Elsa and Anna, respectively.
If you aren’t familiar with either of these women, let us give you a quick rundown. Rix is best known for her portrayal of Elphaba in the Australian production of Wicked, as well as leading roles in Ghost the Musical, Evita and, most recently, Jekyll and Hyde opposite Anthony Warlow.
Monsma is a relative newcomer. After graduating from the Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University, she is currently taking on the role of Catherine Howard in the Australian production of SIX. She has most recently performed in the Australasian tour of Disney’s Aladdin understudying the role of Princess Jasmine and appeared in the Australian tour of MAMMA MIA!. Now she will make her leading lady debut in this incredible production.
They will be joined by some of Australia’s most outstanding musical theatre performers and exciting fresh faces in the rest of Frozen The Musical’s beloved roles of Olaf, Kristoff, Hans, Sven, and more. And the best part is – we can now reveal them all to you.
Everyone’s favourite snowman Olaf, will be played by one of Australia’s best-known entertainers, Matt Lee. With musical theatre, dance, choreography, film, and TV credits to his name – including starring as Bert in Disney and Cameron Mackintosh’s production of Mary Poppins for which he won the Helpmann Award for Best Actor and as a Logie nominated judge on So You Think You Can Dance Australia – we can’t wait to see him on the Capitol Theatre stage.
Lee will be joined by Thomas McGuane in the role of Hans, Sean Sinclair as Kristoff, Aljin Abella as Weselton, and Jonathan MacMillan and Lachlan McIntyre who will share the role of Sven.
Sharing the role of Young Elsa will be Deeana Cheong Foo, Amelia Heaven, Sara Petrovski and Lucy Famborough. While Chloe Delle-Vedove, Faith Hedley, Sabrina Franco and Sienna Kann will share the role of Young Anna.
Also joining the cast is Jakob Ambrose, Justin Anderson, Tanika Anderson, Blake Appelqvist, Sage Douglas, Nicholas Eaton, Mitchell Fistrovic, Joti Gore, Samm Hagen, Jayme-Lee Hanekom, Kimberley Hodgson, Todd Jacobsson, Jessica Kane, Andrew Kroenert, Jordan Malone, and Hayley Marti.

Frozen The Musical will now open at Sydney’s Capitol Theatre on Tuesday 1 December 2020.
Frozen The Musical is based on the 2013 film of the same name that brought us the inescapable singalong hit ‘Let It Go’ – which reached the top five on the Billboard 100 Chart and won both the Academy Award for Best Original Song in 2015 and the Grammy Award for Best Song Written for Visual Media in 2015 – along with ‘Do You Want to Build a Snowman?’ and ‘In Summer’ – we know the songs are already stuck in your head.
The film itself notched up its fair share of nominations and award wins. It was nominated for two Golden Globes, winning for Best Animated Feature and becoming the first Walt Disney Animation Studios film to do so. As well as the Academy Award for ‘Let It Go’, it also named Best Animated Featured. Frozen also scored the BAFTA Award for Best Animated Film, five Annie Awards (including Best Animated Feature), and two Critics’ Choice Awards for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song for ‘Let It Go’. So it’s safe to say, the film was well and truly a critical and commercial success, sweeping the world up in its beautiful, magical narrative.
The Broadway production has become a classic in its own right, featuring a creative team that has a collective 16 Tony awards to its credit and continually appearing as one of the top ten best-selling Broadway shows.
Featuring a dozen new songs created exclusively for the stage, this unforgettable theatrical experience is filled with sensational special effects, stunning sets and costumes, and powerhouse performances. Frozen is everything you want in a musical: it’s moving, it’s spectacular, and above all, it’s pure, theatrical joy.
