DIRECTOR'S NOTE

Kyle Lawrence

 

“I can give her no greater power than she has already... don't you see how strong that is? How men and animals are obliged to serve her, and how well she has got through the world, barefooted as she is. She cannot receive any power from me greater than she now has, which consists in her own purity and innocence of heart.”      - Hans Christian Andersen, The Snow Queen.

 

In the original story of the Snow Queen, the Devil creates a mirror which reflects only ugliness and fear. When this mirror eventually gets shattered its pieces scatter across the earth and find their ways into the eyes of man, distorting their vision to see the world as only nasty and cruel, and turning their hearts cold as ice. After her best friend is stricken by one of these pieces of a glass and taken away by the Snow Queen, a young girl named Gerda goes on a journey to rescue him and thaw his frozen heart. 

Though most elements of the Snow Queen were severely altered when Frozen was adapted by Jennifer Lee and Walt Disney Studios, a core essence strongly remains. Frozen is a story about love through our actions and their intentions vs their impact. Elsa’s fears shroud her image of self as being only a monster, and though she is acting out of love to protect Anna and herself, her actions are those of isolating anguish and bitterness. Anna is hurt by Elsa’s cold shoulder, yet she continues to act on love with a childlike optimism & joy.  Her “purity and innocence of heart” warms the frozen hearts of those around her and reveals their true selves.

I feel confident that anyone who is here to see this performance today has seen Frozen before and heard the lyrics of “Let It Go” repeating over and over, somehow louder and even higher than they were before. Yet it is my belief that every time we tell a story there is always something new to be discovered. For me, the new discoveries of telling this story with such a talented young cast has really highlighted its themes of childhood joy and wonderment, and how important it is to not let the ugly cruelty of the world freeze our hearts and our actions towards each other and ourselves. May we all have the courage to show acts of true love with childlike purity, and be shown love in return enough to thaw our bitter sorrows.

 

“And they both sat there, grown up, yet children at heart; and it was summer - warm, beautiful summer.”
