Frigid: A Musical Worth Melting For (Napier University Drama Society)

By | Published on Saturday 19 August 2017

A musical parody based on the modern Disney classics ‘Frozen’, ‘Brave’ and ‘Tangled’ -definitely not ‘The Princess and the Frog’ though, because she married a frog (yuck!). The whole production feels like a conversation had by a group of friends in the early hours of the morning, one that started “wouldn’t it be funny if…” and didn’t really go much further from there. But, unlike most of those conversations, they wrote it down, bought some unimaginative costumes and booked a slot at the Fringe. The plot sees beloved princess Annie kidnapped, while her sister Ellie join forces with a whole cohort of Disney-ish favourites to save the day. It’s underwhelming from the start, with lacklustre performances and the occasional topical joke.

Greenside @ Infirmary Street, until 19 Aug.
