Frozen The Musical in London's West End has been postponed until 2021.

The new London production was due to begin preview performances at London’s Theatre Royal Drury Lane on October 30 ahead of an official opening date of November 11.


But due to the ongoing lockdown, which has caused delays to renovations of the theatre, performances will now begin on April 2, 2021.

Disney said: "All existing bookings have automatically been moved into a new date... Ticketholders have received an announcement email, and will receive a new confirmation email with details of their booking as soon as possible - due to the volume of guests, this may take up to five weeks.

"If any guest is not happy with their new date, they will be able to request an alternative date, a Frozen voucher or a refund by following the instructions in their confirmation email. We ask all guests to whom this applies not to get in touch until after you receive your new confirmation email.

"Thank you for your patience and understanding, we look forward to sharing this magical story live on stage from April 2021."

Tickets will go back on general sale on July 27.

It was previously revealed that Samantha Barks will take up the leading role as ice queen Elsa while Stephanie McKeon will appear as sister princess Anna.


Meanwhile, it's been revealed the London version of the 2013 animated film's stage adaption will feature a number of changes from the original Broadway production, including new song I Can’t Lose You performed by Elsa and Anna.

Over in the States, Disney recently announced that the Broadway production of Frozen would not re-open once restrictions ease, with all New York theatres closed until at least September.

Frozen had been running alongside its sister Disney productions The Lion King and Aladdin on Broadway since 2018.

Frozen features music and lyrics by husband and wife team Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez who wrote both the original songs for the film and more than 10 new songs for the Broadway show.

The musical's book comes from Jennifer Lee, who wrote the film's screenplay, with direction from Michael Grandage, choreography from Rob Ashford and musical supervision/arrangements by Stephen Oremus.
