Full Synopsis

The Townspeople of Arendelle and the royal family — Queen Iduna, King Agnarr, Young Elsa, and Young Anna — celebrate summer ("Let the Sun Shine On"). As the princesses play, Young Anna goads Young Elsa into using her magical powers to create ice and snow, but Queen Iduna reminds them that magic must stay secret.

Later that evening, the sisters create a magical toy snowman named Olaf ("A Little Bit of You"). As their games grow more adventurous, the Snow Chrous joins in and Young Elsa accidentally strikes Young Anna with her powers. The King and Queen rush to help, and Queen Iduna calls on the Hidden Folk to revive Young Anna ("First Joik"). Pabbie and Bulda, the mystical leaders of the Hidden Folk, remove the ice from Young Anna's head as well as all memories of Young Elsa's magic.

Young Elsa grows fearful of her powers and isolates herself from her sister until she can learn to control them; the gates to the castle are closed. With no memory of the magic strike, Young Anna wonders why her sister will no longer play with her ("Do You Want to Build a Snowman?").

Years later, Middle Elsa still struggles to control her powers as her fear grows, while Middle Anna still yearns for her sister's affection. The King and Queen leave the kingdom to search for answers but are lost at sea.

On the day of Elsa's coronation as queen, the Castle Staff reopen the gates. Anna daydreams about how exciting it will be to have life back in the castle, while Elsa practices controlling her powers for the coronation ("For the First Time in Forever"). As guests arrive, Anna bumps into the charming Prince Hans, and both of them slam into Kristoff, a local ice harvester, and his reindeer, Sven, knocking Kristoff's bag of ice to the ground.

The Bishop crowns Elsa as she contemplates the relationship she wishes she could have with Anna ("Dangerous to Dream"). At the coronation ball, the two sisters finally talk and laugh together, particularly at the expense of the arrogant Duke of Weselton. Later, Anna finds Hans, and the two immediately fall in love ("Love Is an Open Door") and decide to marry. The elated couple asks Elsa for her blessing of their marriage, but she refuses. As tensions rise, Elsa accidentally shoots ice into the ballroom. Elsa flees, and Anna runs out to find her.

On the snowy mountainside, Kristoff sings a song to Sven ("Reindeer(s) Are Better Than People") when a freezing Anna comes upon them. They agree to help her find Elsa, and are startled when Olaf, a magical snowman, appears. Olaf vows to help them bring back summer, and along with the Summer Chorus, fantasizes about what it will be like ("In Summer"). The group also comes across Oaken and Oaken's Family, who teach them about hygge and provide them with winter gear ("Hygge").

Isolated in an ice palace of her own making, Elsa lets go of her fear and embraces her powers ("Let It Go"). Meanwhile, Hans and Weselton send out a search party to find Anna and capture Elsa.

Anna, Kristoff, Sven, and Olaf finally find Elsa. Elsa's newfound liberation doesn't last long, however, once Anna reveals that her powers have set off an eternal winter everywhere. In her panic, Elsa accidentally strikes Anna again ("For the First Time in Forever – Reprise"). When Elsa blasts the group down the mountain ("Mountain Fall"), they seek a cure for Anna from the Hidden Folk ("Kristoff's Joik"), who think she and Kristoff are a couple ("Fixer Upper"). When Anna faints, however, Pabbie and Bulda inform them that only an act of true love can thaw her frozen heart, so they return to Arendelle to find Hans.

Meanwhile, Elsa is captured and brought back to the castle. When Anna arrives, Hans reveals that he never loved her and was just using her to become King of Arendelle. He leaves Anna to freeze to death, but Olaf helps her escape to find Kristoff.

Hans tells the kingdom that Anna has died and sentences Elsa to death, who, in her fear, creates a massive blizzard ("Colder by the Minute"). As Anna is about to reunite with Kristoff, she sees that Hans has drawn his sword over Elsa. Anna sacrifices herself, stopping Kristoff's sword as she turns to ice.

This act of true love between sisters thaws Anna, and Elsa realizes that love can thaw the effects of her powers ("Finale – Part 1"). Anna sends Hans away, and the kingdom celebrates while all vow to fill the world with light and love ("Finale – Part 2").

Character Breakdown

Young Anna

Young Anna, Middle Anna, and Anna are all the young Princess of Arendelle at different ages. Filled with a tremendous amount of light, energy, and love, Anna is a hopelessly optimistic extrovert at all ages, but as she grows older, she longs for connection with others, especially her sister, Elsa. Each version of this warm and determined princess requires a strong singer with great comic timing. Because Anna and Elsa share such a close bond, consider auditioning these roles together to get a sense of the performers' chemistry. Once your actors playing Young Anna and Middle Anna are finished with these roles, consider adding them to the ensemble for the remainder of the show.

Young Elsa

Young Elsa, Middle Elsa, and Elsa are all the elder Princess of Arendelle at different ages. Next in line for the throne, Elsa has been born with magical powers that can overwhelm her when she becomes afraid and harm others if not handled with care. Fearful of hurting anyone, especially her beloved sister, Anna, Elsa becomes anxious and withdrawn as she grows older, before eventually learning to take control of, and become confident in, her powers which she masterfully uses to manipulate the Snow Chorus. With the exception of Middle Elsa, who has only one lyric, look for very strong singers who can portray Elsa's restrained nature. Once your actors playing Young Elsa and Middle Elsa are finished with these roles, consider adding them to the ensemble for the remainder of the show.

King Agnarr

The warm-hearted ruler of Arendelle is committed to protecting both his family and the Townspeople from his eldest daughter's powers. With only one singing solo, focus on casting an actor who can play this father figure convincingly.

Gender: male
Queen Iduna

The queen possesses a sense of rightness and kindness that guides her in her protection of her two young girls. A daughter of the Northern Nomads, this queen has the ability to communicate with the Hidden Folk of the mountains and so understands Elsa's powers deeply; look for an actor who can portray this sense of compassion.

Gender: female
Pabbie

Pabbie and Bulda are the mystical leaders of the Hidden Folk who have a soft spot for "strays." Ever-benevolent, these parental figures want what's best for Kristoff, even if they are a bit misguided in their efforts. Look for amiable performers who will endear themselves to the audience in the crowd- pleaser, "Fixer Upper."

Gender: any
Bulda

Pabbie and Bulda are the mystical leaders of the Hidden Folk who have a soft spot for "strays." Ever-benevolent, these parental figures want what's best for Kristoff, even if they are a bit misguided in their efforts. Look for amiable performers who will endear themselves to the audience in the crowd- pleaser, "Fixer Upper."

Gender: any
Bishop

The bishop officiates the coronation and passing of the crown to Elsa. This spiritual supervisor must communicate to the Townspeople of Arendelle in a serious and formal manner.

Gender: any
Kristoff

Kristoff is a hardworking ice harvester. Kristoff has a sarcastic veneer and a rough-around-the-edges exterior that hides a big heart. Taken in by the Hidden Folk when he was young, he loves Pabbie and Bulda dearly, but is a bit of a loner with a reindeer for a best friend- until he meets Anna. With only a few short singing solos, focus on casting a performer who can balance a cynical sense of humor with charming banter.

Gender: male
Vocal range top: A3
Vocal range bottom: G2
Sven

Sven is a reindeer of few words, fiercely loyal pal to Kristoff, and loves giving the ice harvester a hard time. Look for a performer with good comic timing and terrific physical acting skills who can devise a strong movement vocabulary to bring this furry charmer to life. Consider auditioning potential Svens and Kristoffs together as the two should share a visible bond.

Gender: any
Vocal range top: A4
Vocal range bottom: A3
Hans

The ambitious Prince of the Southern Isles and overlooked thirteenth son of a king. Hans constantly strives to find a way to make good and stand out. He boasts an exceedingly charming facade that fools everyone - including Anna and, ideally, the audience! - into believing he's Prince Charming, when really, he's just a jerk. Cast an actor who can play both sides of this two-faced prince with relish as well as confidently sing the moments of harmony in "Love Is an Open Door."

Gender: male
Vocal range top: B3
Vocal range bottom: G2
Weselton

A visiting duke who possesses a huge inferiority complex. A bombastic, overbearing sycophant, Weselton's sole purpose is to hobnob with influencers and royalty. Look for an actor who can portray the narrow-minded naysayer with over-the-top gusto.

Gender: any
Olaf

The magical snowman created by Anna and Elsa when they were young. Olaf is endearingly delighted by everything - especially the idea of summer. Goofy and sweet, Olaf should possess a childlike innocence and excellent comic timing.

Gender: male
Vocal range top: D4
Vocal range bottom: F#2
Oaken

An exceedingly cheerful and convivial wandering salesperson and ardent devotee to all things cozy and comfortable. Oaken's "Hygge" is a showstopper, so cast an actor who can portray the peppy peddler's infectious warmth with flair and good humor.

Gender: any
Ensemble

Includes the following roles: Townspeople, Snow Chorus, Hidden Folk, Castle Staff, Housekeeper, Butler, Handmaiden, Cook, Steward, Guards, Summer Chorus, Oaken's Family
