GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (ABC 4) – For generations, Disney has moved and changed us through timeless stories and classics that are magical. Maranda and her photographer Spencer had the opportunity to go behind the scenes of the Broadway musical “Frozen” to get a glimpse of the work, effort and passion that goes into making the magic happen on stage.  She also spoke with some Michiganders who are part of the magic. 

Maranda talked with Lauren Nicole Chapman, who plays Anna. Originally from Rochester, MI, Lauren has been in the “Frozen” family since 2017. She says it is a dream and honor to bring this story to life across the country. But what she did not expect was to meet and become good friends with Kate Bailey, part of the ensemble cast, who also grew up in Rochester. At one point, the women discovered they’d gone to the same dentist growing up. Another member of the production with ties to Michigan is Dominic Dorset, who plays Kristoff. Dorset recently joined the production, hailing from Saline, MI.

This show is special for many reasons. Disney always finds ways to exceed our expectations and make everything magical. The show emulates love and friendships. Everyone involved in Disney’s “Frozen” are friends, and you can see their bond in this production. You won’t want to miss the magic this summer when “Frozen” comes to DeVos Performance Hall on July 11-23.
