Frigid: A Musical Worth Melting For

Napier University Drama Society returns to the musical stage after selling out last year. This is particularly worthy as these are not necessarily drama students but enthusiasts out for experience and fun. For this year’s Fringe run, writers Joshua O’Brien and Anthony Smyth Cowper have collaborated with composers Honza Kourimnsky and Ruby McKinnell to produce a parody on the Hollywood blockbuster Frozen called Frigid: A Musical Worth Melting For. Credit initially must be given to the four live musicians who must set up and balance in a tiny space with a quick turnaround.

Actors with convincing US accents, well projected vocals (no radio mics) and confident performance throughout results in another triumph for NUDS.

A huge cast – I counted 14 on stage, plus musicians and an even bigger team of techies, production crew and media staff – makes this the success it is with sold out performances. Actors with convincing US accents, well projected vocals (no radio mics) and confident performance throughout results in another triumph for NUDS.

Do you want to see a show... man? Returning after their sell-out 2016 Fringe run, Napier University Drama Society presents an all-singing, all-dancing, original parody of Frozen and the Disney universe! Accompanied by a live band, follow Grandpa Tam's story of Ellie and Annie as they navigate through well-known lands, meet familiar faces and get involved in a turf war or two. It promises to be a story so great, you won't be able to let it go.
