Since most parents already have the songs memorized anyway, why not take the whole family down to the Frozen Junior Musical this week?

There are just two more performances remaining for Weyburn Comprehensive School's Frozen Junior Musical, tonight and tomorrow at Cugnet Centre beginning at 7:00 p.m.

Choir and Band Teacher Brayden Jensen said it's got everything one would expect, and even a few they might not.

"The musical follows the movie fairly closely, with the same storyline," he explained. "The kids have worked really hard. It's a must-see for sure. They're doing really well. I'm proud of them." 

Jensen said he decided on this musical over the summer, and they've been rehearsing since mid-September, and all the fine-tuning has been paying off for everyone

"We've been battling kids being out with sickness, and kids are really busy, so balancing things like volleyball and the musical together, but they've worked really hard and it's come together." 


He said they began rehearsals in the Choral room, without costumes and sets, then gradually moved to the stage, and now, they even have special effects.

"We've got some smoke machines, and the kids actually have to build the castle during the 'Let it Go' scene, so that was a challenge to choreograph, but they've got it and it's a highlight for sure."

Most of the sets, with all their moving parts, Jensen noted, would not have been possible without the help from shop teacher Cody Paterson.

"I'd be lost without my helpers. So I've had Marcia Johnson and Mary Astalos working with props and with choreography and helping backstage and everything," said Jensen. "It's one of those things that would be really difficult to do if you didn't have some hands to help."

He added Meg Manko also helped out a lot with lights and more.

"I guess I just want to reiterate how proud I am of the kids, and how hard they've worked, and how thankful I am of the people that have helped us get to this point. The hard stuff is over and now we get to do the fun part, which is the performances." 

"I see the personalities of the kids, they've become the characters and just the personalities and the talent of the kids has really made the show."

Tickets are available at the door or at the Comp office during school hours. Adult admission is $15, it's $5 for kids ages six to 12, and kids five years of age or younger can get in for free.
