Bring all the family to the event of the summer – the sing-along version of Disney’s FROZEN at the beautiful Charlton House. From the outside Elsa looks poised, regal and reserved, but she lives in fear of her secret power to create ice and snow. When her magic nearly kills her younger sister Anna, Elsa isolates herself. Anna, a fearless optimist, sets off on an epic journey – with rugged Kristoff and his loyal reindeer Sven – to find her sister, and encounters Everest-like conditions, mystical trolls and a hilarious snowman named Olaf.
