GIVEAWAY in collaboration with Disney On Ice presents Frozen
Let it go, let it go….
Disney On Ice presents Frozen, kicked off its national tour in Perth on Friday night. My not so little family was invited to a special meet and greet before the show. We’ve been huge fans of Disney on Ice, over the years, so how could we
let it go say no.
I’d love to be able to say we’ve seen all the shows but the truth is, we haven’t always lived in close proximity to Disney On Ice venues. There was the brief period where we resided in Wollongong and Sydney and of course now Perth. Oh, how I love Perth and the fact Perth Arena is just a 15 minute drive away and parking is a relatively painless exercise, if you head in early enough. Friday night was no different and parking at the venue was a flat fee of $20 for the night.
The meet and greet was a gorgeous photo opportunity with Elsa and Anna for a handful of fans before the show. Of course, when it came to the crunch, with my girls being older (16, 17 & 19) they refused to have their photos taken and I had to adopt another family respect that. Thankfully Trae from Where’s the Glow was in the right place at the right time and had her own little versions of Elsa and Olaf in tow and they weren’t so shy when it came to photos (you can see the photographic
evidence cuteness over on Instagram).
When it came to the show though, it wouldn’t matter what age or level of Disney obsession you have, it’s hard not to be completely enchanted. Although I must admit, even with the wide grins on my girls’ faces, it was delightful seeing the little ones in the front row and either side of me really getting into the show.
Opening night for a show like Disney On Ice, is always going to have an air of anticipation but honestly so do most ice skating performances in general. Even more so when you’re seated behind what I’m assuming was the director and/or choreographer, with his head piece and notebook. While there seemed to be lots of note taking, there was a general delight and a whole lot of clapping throughout.
To me and I’m assuming the majority of the arena, the show went off without a hitch. The special effects were dazzling and the skating was utterly breathtaking. Having said that, there were two interesting moments with Kristoff and backflips. I’m not entirely sure if he landed the first one perfectly because he recovered so well but there seemed to be an element of added drama and a collective gasp throughout the arena. Honestly though, it was hard to tell if the landing was actually part of the act and in keeping with his character. Although, the second back flip seemed to be more flawless.
Like most Disney on Ice shows, Mikey, Minnie and friends hosted the event. There was also a brief appearance at beginning and end from a few Disney favourites before heading to a fantastical Frozen winter wonderland. Anna, Elsa and the lovable snowman Olaf were crowd favourites as were the never before seen characters of Grand Pabbie and the trolls, as well as the Marshmallow.
Now I must confess, I haven’t actually seen the film Frozen but surprisingly and much to my girls’ embarrassment, I seem to know all the words to all the songs. Much to my girls’ relief, broken ribs stopped me from singing along loudly on this occasion but I’ve had the tunes on replay in my head ever since. It was such an enchanting performance, I would be keen to head back to see another show before it closes here in Perth tomorrow, 5th June.
