NEW YORK (AP) — Some changes are coming in the kingdom of Arendelle: Tony Award-winning director Michael Grandage has been officially unveiled to helm the upcoming stage musical “Frozen.”

Grandage won a Tony for his direction of “Red.” He takes over from Alex Timbers, a two-time Tony Award nominee who directed “Peter and the Starcatcher.”

Disney Theatrical Productions says it will mount the show at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts in August 2017. It is expected to land on Broadway in 2018 alongside its hits “Aladdin” and “The Lion King.”

The husband-and-wife songwriting team of Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez wrote music for the blockbuster 2014 film. They are returning to work on the stage show.

Jennifer Lee was the co-director and screenwriter of the film. She is writing the story.
