WICKED FROZEN tells the story of Kristen Chenobell, a young actress who puts her career on hold to care for her ailing father, returning home to teach science in a Boston public school. Miss Chenobell's excitement about her first day leading drama club is thwarted when only one student shows up, Adele Dazeem, a precocious preteen who uses theatrical fantasies as a way to cope with her fears about the world and her troubles at home. When a Boston blizzard traps them both in the classroom, Adele convinces Miss Chenobell to read her magnum opus, a totally original story called Wicked Frozen. Musical theater madness ensues when the dour classroom is transformed into the halls of Shitz University in the magical land of ScandiNorFinDelle, where Elsaba and Glindanna vie for the love of Prince Ikea and battle the evil foe Cli-MAH-te Chan-JE and her plans to heat up the whole world. As Adele and Kristen's fantasy world spins increasingly out of control, and reality sets in, they soon find their own imperfect lives changed...for good.
