ALL ROLES OPEN
ANNA – Filled with a tremendous amount of light, energy, and love, Anna is a hopelessly optimistic extrovert. She longs for connection with others, especially her sister, Elsa. Seeking a strong singer with great comedic timing to play this warm and determined princess. Vocal Range: D5 to G3.
ELSA – Next in line for the throne, Elsa has been born with magical powers that can overwhelm her when she becomes afraid and harm others if not handled with care. Fearful of hurting anyone, especially her beloved sister, Anna, Elsa becomes anxious and withdrawn as she grows older, before eventually learning to take control of and become confident in her powers. Seeking a powerhouse vocalist with excellent acting ability who can convey Elsa’s vulnerable and fragile side as well as her power and self-realization. Vocal Range: D5 to F#3.
YOUNG ANNA and YOUNG ELSA – Seeking two performers who can portray the qualities and nuance of our heroines in their younger years.
YOUNG ANNA – Vocal Range: D5 to A3
YOUNG ELSA – Vocal Range: C#5 to A3
KRISTOFF – Kristoff is a hardworking ice harvester. Kristoff has a sarcastic veneer and a rough-around-the-edges exterior that hides a big heart. Taken in by the Hidden Folk when he was young, he loves Pabbie and Bulda dearly, but is a bit of a loner with a reindeer for a best friend- until he meets Anna. Seeking a performer who can balance a cynical sense of humor with charming banter. Vocal Range: A3 to G2.
OLAF – The magical snowman created by Anna and Elsa when they were young. Olaf is endearingly delighted by everything – especially the idea of summer. Goofy and sweet, Olaf should possess a childlike innocence and excellent comic timing. Vocal Range: D4 to F#2.
HANS – The ambitious Prince of the Southern Isles and overlooked thirteenth son of a king. Hans constantly strives to find a way to make good and stand out. He boasts an exceedingly charming facade that fools everyone into believing he’s Prince Charming, when really, he’s just a jerk. Seeking a performer who can play both sides of this two-faced prince with relish. Vocal Range: B3 to G2.
SVEN – A reindeer who is a fiercely loyal pal to Kristoff. Seeking a performer with good comic timing and terrific physical acting skills who can devise a strong movement vocabulary to bring this furry charmer to life. Vocal Range: A4 to A3
OAKEN – An exceedingly cheerful and convivial wandering salesperson and ardent devotee to all things cozy and comfortable. Seeking a performer who can portray the peppy peddler’s infectious warmth with flair and good humor. Vocal Range: Tenor
WESELTON – A visiting duke who possesses a huge inferiority complex. A bombastic, overbearing sycophant, Weselton’s sole purpose is to hobnob with influencers and royalty. Seeking a performer who can portray the narrow-minded naysayer with over-the-top gusto. Vocal Range: Spoken
PABBIE and BULDA– The mystical leaders of the Hidden Folk who have a soft spot for “strays.” Ever-benevolent, these parental figures want what’s best for Kristoff, even if they are a bit misguided in their efforts. Seeking two amiable performers who will endear themselves to the audience in the crowd- pleaser, “Fixer Upper.”
PABBIE – Vocal Range: Tenor
BULDA – Vocal Range: Mezzo Belt
KING AGNARR – The warm-hearted ruler of Arendelle is committed to protecting both his family and the Townspeople from his eldest daughter’s powers. Seeking a performer who can exude a sense of strength while maintaining a softer side. Vocal Range: Any
QUEEN IDUNA – The Queen possesses a sense of rightness and kindness that guides her in her protection of her two young girls. A daughter of the Northern Nomads, this queen has the ability to communicate with the Hidden Folk of the mountains and so understands Elsa’s powers deeply. Seeking a performer who can portray these caring, protective and loving qualities. Vocal Range: Any
ENSEMBLE – Seeking triple-threat performers to portray Townspeople, Hidden Folk, Bishop, Castle Staff, Housekeeper, Butler, Handmaiden, Cook, Steward, Guards, Oaken’s Family. Vocal Range: Any
