Tosa West’s Production of Frozen Nearly Sold Out

Since going on sale on October 11th, over 85% of tickets for Wauwatosa West’s fall production, Frozen have been sold, 2 shows being almost completely sold out. With opening night being 3 weeks away, tickets are going quicker than ever. 

“We have 8 shows this year because we knew frozen was going to be so popular.” Said production director Adam Steffan. The fall production is usually 6 productions.

It is unusual that tickets are going so quickly, but this production is special. Wauwatosa West is the only theater program selected to put the official Broadway version of Frozen in the state of Wisconsin. 

Students at Wauwatosa West as well as the entire Wauwatosa community have been enthusiastic about the past productions and want to see the production of Frozen and cheer on the young actors.

“I think it’s a testament to what has been built here, as far as our theater program. Our community looks to us for something of excellent quality that’s what they’re going to come see,” said Steffan. “It really shows that the community values our theater program and the good work that happens in it.”

The cast and crew are all beyond excited for opening night. The students of Tosa West are arguably as excited if not more excited for Frozen to be performed by their friends and classmates. 

One of the reasons students have been especially excited for the play is many students have grown up watching Frozen the movie. Frozen was released on November 27th, 2013.  Most Wauwatosa West students were born between 2005 and 2009.

“Frozen is such an iconic movie for my generation so I think everyone is excited to see the characters and songs come to life,” said senior Phoebe Mann, who is portraying the mother Queen Iduna.

In order to secure the rights to produce the Broadway version of the musical Frozen, Tosa West took place in the Frozen: Love is an Open Door contest.

“The show shines a spotlight on Tosa West Theatre that’s even brighter than before, and it showcases our students in our program on the national stage,” said Steffan.

Tickets are available here.
