SAYT's Frozen Jr. Sensory Friendly Performance at Forest Roberts Theatre
Based on the 2018 Broadway musical, Frozen, Jr. brings Elsa, Anna, and the magical land of Arendelle to life. The show features all of the memorable songs from the animated film plus five new songs written for the Broadway production. A story of true love and acceptance between sisters, Frozen, Jr. 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. SAYT’s production is directed by Jill Vermeulen, with choreography by Emily Burbey and Gracie Fries, and music direction by Sara Parks.
A sensory-friendly performance of Frozen, Jr. designed to create a supportive environment for children and adults diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder or other sensitivity issues, and their friends and families, will be presented on Saturday, November 23 at 1:00pm. Slight adjustments to the production for this performance include the reduction of any jarring sounds or lights, dim house lights that remain on during the performance, and quiet and activity areas staffed with specialists in the lobby for those who need to leave their seats during the performance. The sensory-friendly performance is supported in part by the Community Foundation of Marquette County.
Frozen, Jr. will be presented at 7 p.m. Thursday, November 21; 7 p.m. Friday, November 22; 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday, November 23, and at 1 p.m. Sunday, November 24 at Northern Michigan University’s Forest Roberts Theatre.
