See Gizel perform as Anna in Disney's new musical production
Gizel is currently starring as Anna in Disney's “Frozen – Live at the Hyperion,” the new musical adaptation based on blockbuster animated film of the same name. The show is playing at California Adventure's Hyperion Theater, the 1,873-seat venue that was home of "Disney's Aladdin -- A Musical Spectacular" for 13 years.
The new musical features music and lyrics by the creators of the film score, Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez (“Avenue Q,” “The Book of Mormon,” “Up Here”), and is adapted from the screenplay by Chad Beguelin (“Aladdin – A Musical Spectacular” at Hyperion Theater; Broadway: “Gotta Dance,” “Aladdin,” “The Wedding Singer,” “Elf”).
The production is directed by Liesl Tommy, who is currently represented on Broadway with “Eclipsed” starring Lupita Nyong'o , written by Tony-nominated Chad Beguelin, and features sets by Tony-nominated scenic designer Robert Brill. Jason Michael Webb serves as the musical supervisor and arranger. Puppets for the show were designed by Michael Curry.
Gizel Jimenez is a graduate of New World School of Miami, FL receiving a BFA in Musical Theater.
