Cincinnati, OH- Bringing it’s 2020-2021 season to a close, the Walnut Hills High School Theatre Department will present Disney’s FROZEN JR.

The show will be filmed in the Walnut Hills auditorium and streamed online May 13-15, @ 7 p.m.  

Frozen Jr is based on the Disney film of the same name, and is a condensed version of the stage adaptation that ran on Broadway. It features the same loveable characters of Anna, Elsa, Olaf, Kristoff, Sven, and many others. A story of true love and acceptance between sisters, the show expands upon the emotional relationship and journey between Princesses Anna and Elsa. When faced with danger, the two discover their hidden potential and the powerful bond of sisterhood. With a cast of beloved characters and loaded with magic, adventure, and plenty of humor, Frozen JR. is sure to thaw even the coldest heart.

“In a time where it looks like things are taking a turn for the better, we’re excited to tell a story about finding yourself, accepting yourself, and loving yourself through times of great trial,” says director Mike Sherman. “It’s a popular movie for a reason- it’s a heartwarming story with a great message and speaks to the powerful bond of sisterhood, and what true love really is.” 

This production and the entire WHHS Theatre Season is graciously sponsored by the Walnut Hills High School Class of 1964 Performing Arts Fund.
