Let it snow! ‘Frozen’ skates into Barclays

The cold doesn't bother them anyway: See Elsa and Anna come to life at Barclays Center from Nov. 11.

The ice woman cometh.

Animation sensation “Frozen” is gliding into Barclays Center on Nov. 11 for this year’s Disney on Ice show — and never has a film from the Mouse House translated so smoothly to the medium of ice dancing, said one of the performers.

“I don’t think there is anything more fitting,” said Jono Patridge, who hails from London and stars as rugged mountain man Kristoff. “We all love that movie story line — it sticks to that pretty much exactly.”

As anyone under the age of 12 can tell you, the two-hour show focuses on the tale of two royal sisters, Anna and Elsa. Anna is vying to connect with her sister but Elsa — a princess with magical powers — stays secluded. Along the way, the sisters cross paths with Kristoff and his reindeer Sven, sneaky prince Hans, and the adorkable talking snowman Olaf.

Patridge said the show — just like the movie — contains happy and heartbreaking scenes. He said the audience can expect to hear their favorite tunes, including “Let It Go,” the Oscar-winning tune penned by a Park Slope couple during a walk in Prospect Park. The musical moments are even cooler than the ice-skating stunts, said Patridge — and audience members can expect to leave with the show with goose bumps.

“The music is so catchy,” he said. “It is just unbelievable.”

“Disney on Ice presents Frozen” at Barclays Center [620 Atlantic Ave. at Flatbush Avenue in Prospect Heights, www.disne‌yonic‌e.com/‌froze‌n, (917) 618–6100]. Nov. 11–16. Tickets start at $25.
