Your perfect Frozen the Musical experience in Sydney

The blockbuster musical is playing in Sydney. Here’s how to make a night of it

By Time Out in association with Frozen the Musical

It’s been almost eight years since Disney’s cultural juggernaut of a film, Frozen, hit the screens and like the Elsa-obsessed kids who couldn’t stop singing 'Let It Go', the feminist tale of sisterhood has now grown up into a Broadway stage show. The mature, expanded musical is currently playing at the Capitol Theatre, with tickets for additional March and April performances available from December 11. Read on to find out how to book the best value tickets, where to eat nearby, and how to keep the magic going after the curtain comes down.

Treat yourself to: Frozen-inspired cakes at KOI Dessert Bar

Restaurants Cafés Chippendale

The creations by Reynold Poernomo at KOI Dessert Bar are always gorgeously crafted, but the limited-edition, Frozen inspired desserts are next-level pretty. There are currently two amazing Frozen-inspired cakes on offer at the Chippendale and Ryde stores. There’s the Eternal Winter, which has raspberry, vanilla, chocolate brownie and strawberry marshmallow. You could also get your hands on the Glacier, with a Christmas pudding base. The team at KOI have announced that they’re going to be revealing even more Frozen-inspired creations over the next few months including a high tea.

Taste: Frozen-themed dishes at Darling Square

Restaurants American Haymarket

Looking for a pre- or post-show dining experience? The entertainment precinct offers multiple tasty options in one spot, including popular mod-Vietnamese diner Hello Auntie, crowd-pleasing Melbourne chookery Belles Hot Chicken, and izakaya-style bar and karaoke spot Nakano Darling. There are even several Frozen-themed dishes to be found on menus across the lifestyle hub. Some of the particularly Insta-worthy ones include the bowl of blue-and-purple ramen (blue pea flower tinted noodles, blue soft eggs, nori, purple cauliflower and cabbage) at Iiko Mazesoba, and Dopa Donburi and Milkbar’s 'Frozen Storm' dessert (blue pea flower ice, blue spirulina syrup, coconut and banana cream, purple potato, sago and coconut jelly). But perhaps even more alluring than the food is the fact that Darling Square has plenty of parking just five minutes' walk from the theatre.


Eat: A hunger fixer-upper at World Square

Shopping Sydney

If it’s sustenance you’re after, World Square offers another equally compelling option. It’s pretty tough to pass up a meal at cult dumpling chain Din Tai Fung, but if the lines are too long you can always get your xiao long bao fix at Taste of Shanghai instead. There are also spicy ma-la noodles at Dainty Sichuan Noodle Express, neat Japanese set menus at Yayoi, and yet another Melbourne fried-chicken spot in Gami Chicken and Beer. There’s also a late-night Coles for showgoers who like to smuggle snacks in their handbags.

Things to do Paddington

If you’ve never attempted fan art, this paint-and-sip class is a great way to dip your toe into the Frozen water. In January, both the Darlinghurst and Crows Nest studios are offering sessions inspired by the musical, using the show’s spectacular sets and costumes as the subject of your masterpiece-in-the-making. The three-hour sessions are open to all experience levels, cost $60, and include art materials and instruction. All you need to do is BYO drinks and creativity, and you may just find that one increases with the other.
