The Sing-along for the Next Generation!
Frozen has shown kids around the world that it’s normal to want to burst into song while watching your favorite movie musical. And why not! We invite you to “let it go!” and sing-along to your heart’s content with Elsa, Anna, and Olaf. Of course, it’s not just for kids: any Disney fan worth their snow flurry can belt out both parts to “Love Is An Open Door” and all the catchy Broadway-style tunes in this new sing-along experience.
In “Frozen,” fearless optimist Anna teams up with rugged mountain man Kristoff and his loyal reindeer Sven in an epic journey, encountering Everest-like conditions, mystical trolls and a hilarious snowman named Olaf in a race to find Anna’s sister Elsa, whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter.
The event begins with our host leading a raucous vocal warm-up before you learn how to use the props in your Fun Pack. We’ll even teach you choreography from the movie so you can channel your inner Elsa by conjuring an actual snowstorm! And once the movie starts you can softshoe into summer with Olaf along with a theater full of Disney musical devotees just like you! And don’t worry if you’re a bit of a “fixer-upper!” Our host will be there every step of the way to make sure you have an amazing experience as we race to save the kingdom from that ice cold evil villain!
Costumes Required! Okay, not required but strongly encouraged! Keep it simple with an outfit of all white showing you’re a snow queen or go all out with an authentic Anna or Elsa costume. Want to be a true Frozen fan? Get creative and do something completely original: one fan came dressed as Pabbie, the Troll King!
Frozen is presented by The California Academy for the Creative and Performing Arts in partnership with Guggenheim Entertainment.
In partnership with 3Below, The Academy Family Series gives our fans/members a chance to introduce their children to the joy of beloved classic family films on the big screen. At each screening, we present a mini film appreciation course by way of trivia and post-performance discussions with the children and their families. We look at this as the opportunity for pintsize cinephiles to catch up on the best in children’s films and promote critical thinking and discussion by having the children write reviews of the films and vote for their favorite films. We host an informal awards ceremony at the conclusion of each series
We are not simply a movie theatre; we are a school, a museum. We host film festivals that are part of our mission to educate, entertain, and engage our students and families. Our screenings, as part of our educational mission, have a facilitator who promotes discussion at the theater and engages families to take the conversation home following a child’s viewing of a film. We also screen films for schools as part of our outreach program in which teachers are able to engage their students in subjects associated with the curriculum or exhibitions we have running.
One of the goals of The Academy is to introduce young people to the excitement and wonderful world of theatre and film.
A mini-learning guide is placed on our website with the mission to promote discussion and experience the movie together not in an insular setting/manner. We engage, educate, and entertain our audiences by creating community and promoting discussion.
The experience of going to the theatre doesn’t have to end with the credits or the curtain call. Our events stimulate thought and inspire curiosity, whether it’s into the culture depicted, other writings by the authors or directors, or the encouragement to discuss concepts presented in the play or film. Teachers, students, parents, and all Academy audiences are able to discuss each of our events before attending them as well as after they have experienced the play or movie.
The Academy Family Series is designed to bring these life-enhancing activities into your family unit.
We believe that theatre provides much more than entertainment and much more than an average TV show. We believe that theatre should be a community event rather than a private experience; theatre should challenge families. We believe that the time spent driving home in the car talking about the play or movie sharing ideas and experiences, is in many ways more important than the play or movie itself.
We promise to engage you, to educate you, and to entertain you – a worthwhile choice for your entertainment dollar.
