To date, the 2013 animated flick Frozen has grossed more than $1 billion worldwide at the box office. As such, evidenced by Disney On Ice’s adaptation, the franchise’s possibilities are seemingly endless. The show skates into Sacramento Wednesday, February 10, for a six-day run at Sleep Train Arena.

Skater Becky Bereswill was cast as the story’s protagonist Elsa and in a recent interview talked about the pressure she’s felt in representing the role model.

“Elsa really is a dream role for me since she is such a wonderful character, so beloved by her fans,” said Bereswill.

Getting the job came from Bereswill’s lengthy experience on ice—and knowing the right, um, people.

“Since I was known and came from a competitive skating background, Elsa herself approached me,” she said. Of course.

A huge amount of work goes into each production. “This show goes through great lengths to bring the movie onto the ice with awesome effects including lots of snow machines and even Elsa’s ice tower,” she said. Cue the opening notes of “Let it Go.” $28-$101.50; 7 p.m. February 10-12; 11 a.m., 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. February 13-14; noon and 4 p.m. February 15. Sleep Train Arena, 1 Sports Parkway;
