It may be the height of summer now but Sheffield city centre is sure to be full of ice princesses, snowmen and reindeer next weekend as Sing-A-Long-A-Frozen returns to the Lyceum.

Fans of the film of all ages can join in the fun with their favourite Disney characters Anna, Elsa and Olaf in the show, which is on stage next Friday, August 21 and Saturday 22.

Following sell-out performances earlier in the year, Sing-a-Long-a Frozen returns to the Lyceum by popular demand.

The show is introduced by a live host. Audience members receive a free prop bag before they warm up their singing voices and learn some impressive dance moves with the help of a group of very special princesses.

Then it’s time to Let It Go and join in with a fun-packed interactive screening, complete with on-screen lyrics of Disney’s most popular film ever.

Dressing up is positively encouraged – this is one show where the audience is very much the star.

Sing-A-Long-A-Frozen has become something of a phenomenon, following on from the success of the Sing-A-Long-A-Sound-of-Music tours organised by the same production company.

According to the producers: “Allegedly the first ever sing-a-long happened at an old people’s home in Inverness.

“The nurses wanted to involve the old people in an interactive group therapy and so screened Seven Brides For Seven Brothers and gave out song sheets so that everyone could sing along.

“The idea was then developed for the Gay and Lesbian Film Festival in London in 1999 before opening at the Prince Charles Cinema in August of that year.

“Initially, there was an eight-show run but the show sold out very quickly, picking up amazing TV coverage and amassing a stack of newspaper stories.

“The regular shows of Sing-a-long-a Sound of Music then began at the Prince Charles Cinema and the show has been running there ever since.”

Sheffield Theatres’ café bar Crucible Corner will also be welcoming families on the days of the performances.

From 1pm each day, the Crucible Corner will be offering exclusive meal deals of one free children’s meal with every adult main meal, fun party games, face painting and the chance to get creative in their Craft Corner.

Any children who have chosen to dress for the occasion will also be able to take part in a grand prince and princesses parade to show off their costumes.
