Lyceum International School Frozen Event 2015

The students from Grades One to Eight of Lyceum International School Nugegoda brought to life the Magic of the wonderful songs  and the story of  ‘FROZEN’ at their school hall the Bellerephon on August 1st and 2nd 2015.

The wonderful songs of Robert and Kristen Lopez sung by nearly 350 voices transported the audience to the land of Arendelle and the wonder of a tale of love between sisters marred by cryokinetic powers that go out of control. A lively and exuberant Anna played along the chillingly cold and magnetic Elsa. A dashing Hans and charming Kristoff literally stepped out of the 3d Animated movie, they together with a giant puppet Marshmellow , left the audience spellbound.

Olaf’s spirit of optimism was infectious as he sang and danced with a vibrant group of seven year olds who certainly lit the stage up with the radiance of summer. The element of magic was exercised by a Grand Pabbie who certainly had to be a king over his quirky group of trolls whose lively dancing spelt the way to the ‘ fixer-upper’ needed to bring Elsa’s powers  into proper focus. Certainly love prevailed as these youngsters enabled the audience to feel its power not just in retel
ling a tale but in living it to every detail on stage.

The wonderful world of FROZEN was best experienced ‘live’ by the audience as a spectacular display of lights; these with costumes that captured every detail of the originals gave further authenticity to the  scenes.

Outstanding singer’s of the evening were Celinda Hettiarachchi, Megan Adaman, Sanali Gunawardana, Hiruhimni Wijetunga, Thunu Ratnayake, Akith Dissanayake, Adish Ediriweera, Kashmin Wijayasekara, Nisal Liyanage, Azeem Muthaliph and Joshua Niles.

Kudos to the talented cast and staff of Lyceum’s Theatron for enabling this Amazing production.
