The theatre adaptation of Disney's smash hit Frozen made its Broadway debut back in 2018, and two years after the show’s U.S. launch, Frozen: The Musical is now officially coming to London's West End. The show is of course inspired by the movie of the same name and is set to kick-off in the UK later this year. If you're as excited as I am about this theatrical debut, you'll want to know how to bag yourself a front-row seat — so here's how to get tickets to Frozen The Musical in the UK.

Well, fans of the animated spectacular are in luck, because tickets for Frozen: The Musical go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, March 6 here in the UK. The West End spectacle is scheduled to get underway on Friday, October 30, and tickets are available to purchase via the show’s official website, or alternatively, on the Disney and LW Theatres websites.

The musical is based on Disney's animated phenomenon Frozen, which as the BBC reports, earned over £1.25 billion at the box office — making it the most successful animated film of all time. The storyline of the musical is said to be roughly the same as in the movie, however, extra songs have been added to the production.

Fans of the original movie can breathe a sigh of relief, because hit songs such as "Let It Go," "Do You Want To Build A Snowman," and "For The First Time In Forever" are all included within the production. However, the songwriters behind Frozen's music, Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, were tasked with writing additional material for the musical. Discussing the daunting task, Lopez told the BBC, "We felt the pressure, but that was the something we had to, well, let go of. Because there's no way to really create from pressure, you have to create from a sense of play and enjoyment and love."

Despite the pressures faced, the song writing duo also discussed their enjoyment at being given the opportunity to enrich the original story. They told Digital Spy, "The power of Frozen comes from the story of two strong, very real women saving their world by leaning in to their deep love for one another. Expanding this story has been an absolute joy. We went deeper and discovered several song moments that enrich the story in a new emotional and theatrical way."

Jennifer Lee, who penned and co-directed the 2013 film, also wrote the script for the musical. Lee told TheTelegraph of her continued amazement at Frozen's long-lasting appeal. She said "We're so humbled by the continued support for Frozen — at its heart, a joyous story about love and sisterhood. We're very excited to share what we have created on stage with London and to see it come to life in that gorgeous theatre."
