P.S. 91Q in Glendale to present production of ‘Frozen Kids’ in June

Apr. 24, 2023 Elijah Hamilton

The theater department at P.S. 91Q in Glendale, in partnership with Disney Musical In Schools (DMIS), will be presenting a production of Disney’s “Frozen Kids” in June.

According to Alane Caridi, a teacher at P.S.91Q, the production will feature sixth-grade students.

The school received a grant in 2020 from the DMIS program, which allocates funds to put on different Disney plays for under-resourced schools.

According to Caridi, the school intended to launch the production in 2020, but plans were stalled due to the pandemic.

“We applied to be a part of this program, and we were selected in 2020, but unfortunately, due to COVID, we were shut down, and everything was put on hold until now,” Caridi said.

“The kids were very, very excited,”  Scavone said. “I think that the school community will be pleased to see it.”

P.S. 91Q is located at 68-10 Central Ave. in Glendale.
