Fans of Kristin Bell from Disney’s Frozen, will want to check out a new television special that she is producing and hosting which will run on ABC this Sunday, December 10th at 10:00pm EST. This 1-hour special will reunite the cast of a high school musical and asks them to perform it again twenty years later. Each former student will reprise the role from their original production of Stephen Sondheim and Jame LaPine’s Tony-winning musical “Into the Woods.”
Bell had this to say of the special, “My first high school musical was a watershed moment, changing the way I experienced the world from thereafter and I often think, Wouldn’t it be nice to re-live that.” She goes on to say “I wanted to produce ‘Encore!’ to help others re-experience their days on stage and re-discover the distinct bonding that comes with high school theater.” Kristen sees the show as being about converging past dreams with present circumstances and added: “I hope viewers can laugh an see themselves among the insurance salesman, the pregnant woman and the rest of the classmates as they tackle Sondheim.”
Be sure to set aside some time on Sunday night or at least set your DVR for this special that promises to be entertaining, funny, touching and emotional.
