There were audible howls of disappointment from hundreds of children when princesses Anna and Elsa failed to materialise at this year’s Disney On Ice performance. I guess we all just assumed they’d be there, but on double-checking the tickets and the signage and everything else, they were nowhere to be found.
The centrepiece performance was Tangled, the 2010 film based on the old Rapunzel tale. It took five years for that one to trickle down to an ice-skating performance so, by that reasoning, I guess we won’t be seeing Frozen on the rink until at least 2018.
I felt badly for the performers. They must know, surely.
