NEYT presents Disney’s ‘Frozen Jr.’

BRATTLEBORO — New England Youth Theatre, 100 Flat St., presents its 2022 spring musical, Disney's Frozen Jr., with music and lyrics by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez and book by Jennifer Lee.

This production is directed by NEYT administrative director Jeff Seabaugh, with music director Bob Thies, and choreography by Malia'Kekia Nicolini. Performances are Friday, April 8, through Sunday, April 10, and Friday, April 15, and Saturday, April 16, at NEYT.

“It has been such a delight to work with these talented young people,” Seabaugh said in a news release. “Watching them grow as performers throughout this rehearsal process has been such a gift.”

As always at NEYT, students play integral roles in all aspects of the production - not just on stage, but backstage as well, from stage management to lighting, set, and prop design - in a collaboration between professional artists and student apprentices.

“Step into the enchanted world of Arendelle,” invites the news release, “and join Elsa, Anna, and all their magical friends in this modern classic that's full of courageous adventure, whimsical magic, and rollicking humor. Frozen Jr. is a “touching and empowering story for anyone who has forgotten that they are magic,” says the news release.

Performances take place on Fridays at 7 p.m., Saturdays at 2 and 7 p.m., and Sunday at 2 p.m. Tickets are $10 for students, $13 for adults, and $12 for seniors. Tickets can be purchased at or at the box office on Wednesdays between noon and 5 p.m.

COVID-19 protocols are still in effect, with seating by general admission and limited to two-thirds of the theater's capacity to allow for social distancing. Eligible audience members must show proof of being fully vaccinated, or a negative Covid test result taken within 72 hours of the performance.

Masks are optional, except for the matinee performance on Sunday, April 10, when audience capacity is reduced to 50 percent and masks will be required.

New England Youth Theatre is an accessible theater, with accommodations for wheelchairs. Assistive listening devices are available for patrons who are hard of hearing.
