'Frozen' a hot weekend ticket
CARNESVILLE – Disney’s smash hit musical “Frozen” opens Friday at the Telford Center for the Performing Arts.
The production is the culmination of an intensive two-week program developed by Stonebridge Theatre Director Charity Henry.
Henry founded Stonebridge Theatre 10 years ago with former theatre student and FCHS graduate Logan Davison.
Davison serves as technical director for the organization and handles publicity.
Davison and Henry are joined by another FCHS theatre program alumni, Kaytlin Stubbs, who is the director of music.
A typical day for the cast and crew over the last two weeks has consisted of 8-10 hour days, six days a week, mastering highly technical lighting and special effects, scene changes, musical numbers and choreography.
Henry said Stonebridge Theatre was extremely excited to bring the production to the Franklin County stage.
In fact, the group is among the first in the country to produce the show.
“It’s one of the largest, most complex shows we’ve ever done, so with that comes many exciting challenges,” said Henry. “It is thrilling to watch the talent unfold onstage from our youth, and what a treat for our technical students to be working with some of the most advanced technical equipment in the industry. We are looking forward to the community joining us and the 50 cast and crew members for a truly remarkable production.”
The show will feature more than 300 costume pieces, as well as, an onstage blizzard sure to dazzle the audience.
Past productions by Stonebridge have included “Godspell” and “The Crucible.”
Henry said that while they are not a youth theatre program, this particular production required that those participating be 18 years-of-age and under.
There will be three opportunities for the community to see the show: Friday at 7 p.m. and Saturday at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.
Tickets for the event are reserved seating.
Prices start at $8 for children and $10 for adults.
