It will be an emotional journey with some of Disney’s most loveable characters when “Disney on Ice Presents ‘Frozen’” comes to the Coast Coliseum in Biloxi.

This is the first time the animated cast of the Academy Award-winning tale will be brought to life. At the heart of the story is the reunion of two departed sisters, Queen Elsa and Princess Anna.

Bringing color to the tale are mystical powers, reindeer, trolls, the mountain man Kristoff and the comical snowman Olaf.

Appearing in the starring role of Elsa is Juliana Dimura. At age 26, the New York native is in only her second year with Disney, but she has 20 years of skating experience.

For Dimura, having a close relationship to her younger sister makes the story special to her. She said the sisters’ duet “For the First Time in Forever” is especially touching.

That’s just one of the many songs that made “Frozen” a Disney classic. Other popular songs that fill the fantastical tale include “Let it Go,” “Fixer Upper,” “Love is an Open Door” and “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?”

Powerful performances by world-class skaters and state-of-the-art special effects bring reality to the animated characters.

“We take what people see in the movie and bring it to life,” Dimura said.

Additionally, the music engrosses the fans and makes them feel like they are a part of the show. Dimura said there is nothing like hearing an entire audience singing along to the performances.

“People of all ages are singing along to the songs and they really connect,” she said.

Along with the tale of “Frozen,” there will be performances by characters from “Toy Story,” “Finding Nemo” and “The Lion King.” Of course, no Disney show would be complete without appearances by Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, who will lead the production.

Disney’s “Frozen” will run Oct. 19-22. Performances will be Oct. 19 and 20 at 10:30 a.m. and 7 p.m.; Oct. 21 at 10 a.m., 2 p.m. and 6 p.m.; and Oct. 22 at 2 p.m.
