Brianne Mass is living practically every little girl's dream, skating her way around the country alongside the most popular princesses in modern history. As a background skater in Disney on Ice presents Frozen, Mass doesn't take her job for granted.
"This is a dream come true for me to be a part of Disney on Ice, especially presents Frozen," she said. "That's one of my favorite movies anyway, so every day has been an incredible experience for me to be here and be a part of the show."
Mass, who joined the tour in 2017, will be in many scenes when the production lands in Greenville this week. Tickets are still available for Disney on Ice presents Frozen Nov. 22-26 at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena.
"I'm all over the show," she said. "I'm in the beginning of it, the opening and then also the coronation scene. I'm also in the summer scene with Olaf, and I'm in the end as well."
She said her favorite part of the show is the young audience.
"My favorite part of the show is the energy from the kids when the main characters come out," she said. "It's kind of like battery power for me. Once the kids start making noise, it fuels me. The energy they give me is the energy I give back. It's very rewarding."
In Disney On Ice presents Frozen, Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse take the audience through the movie's story based in Arendelle, with special appearances by beloved Disney princesses and favorite characters from Disney/Pixar’s "Toy Story," "Finding Nemo" and Disney’s "The Lion King," who come together to prove that true love is the greatest power of all.
While "Frozen" has been featured in past Disney on Ice shows, this is the first time the complete adventure will be told on ice, according to a statement from Feld Entertainment, which produces the show.
The royal sisters, Anna and Elsa, will be joined by rugged mountain man Kristoff, his loyal reindeer Sven, the lovable snowman Olaf and the mystical trolls who help Anna along the way in this story about love conquering fear. Audiences will get to sing along with such familiar songs as “Let it Go,” “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” and “Fixer Upper.”
Mass, a native of Canada who will be visiting the Upstate for the first time, encourages families to attend the show.
"You get to watch all of your favorite Disney characters come to life," she said.
Performances are scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, and 1 and 5 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Bon Secours Wellness Arena. Tickets start at $15.
