Davidson Community Players will perform Disney’s Frozen Jr. at Cain Center

Oct. 12. Davidson Community Players (DCP), one of Charlotte’s top theatre producing organizations, will mount two of its 2024 shows at Cain Center for the Arts.

DCP’s first show at Cain Center will be Disney’s Frozen Jr., which will run from Jan. 25-27, 2024. Adapted from the beloved 2013 movie, this one-hour version of the Broadway musical will enchant families.

Frozen Jr. will be DCP’s first entry in their educational Connie Company series in 2024 and their most ambitious youth musical to date. Featuring a cast all under the age of 18, the story of Elsa and Anna will be a wintry blast. Hit songs include “Let It Go” and “For the First Time in Forever.”

Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley

Eleven months later Lauren Gunderson’s Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley will run from Dec. 5-15, 2024 and will round out the company’s five-show adult Main Stage Season. One of the most produced plays of the past several years, Pemberley continues the story of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, this time with the bookish Mary at the center. Fans of cozy Hallmark movies and spicy series such as Bridgerton will enjoy this romantic holiday spectacle.

“The collaboration between Cain Center and our organization is the no-brainer that our patrons have been waiting for. We have one of the finest theatre spaces in the state right in our backyard, and we’re thrilled to now be laying the groundwork for regular DCP programming there,” said DCP Executive Director Steve Kaliski.

Tickets will be on sale soon for Frozen Jr. at cainarts.org. DCP subscribers will also have first dibs at priority seats for these two productions when 2024 packages become available later this fall.
