I worked very closely with the Disney casting team and I really wanted the absolute most talented singers actors dancers we began the process months and months and months ago the first reading cast was put together by doing auditions here in Los Angeles we then expanded to look for talent in New York everybody had to dance everybody had to sing and everybody had to be able to act I searched for actors the way I would search for actors if I were casting a Broadway show there was absolutely no compromises in terms of my standards ensemble does a lot they are townspeople they are guests in the ballroom they're guards they're different characters you have to find actors that are going to be able to have that essence within them not identical not cookie-cutter actors but actors that have the essence of what these characters can do I am Princess Anna of arendelle and I want you to take me up the North Mountain our main characters Elsa Anna Kristoff Sven Olaf they needed to not only be versatile but they also needed to be able to sing dance and act and so that really took us to both coasts these people are incredible they are gifted performers the choreographer Christopher Wyndham calls in lunacorns because they're so talented they can do so many things that they're like these little rare gems
