The prize package awarded to the Tosa West Trojan Players includes: 

  • Rights to produce three (3) performances of Frozen. 

    • Schools may present additional performances with paid royalties. 

    • Capacity limit of 500 audience members per performance. Royalties apply for audiences greater than 500. 

  • Free digital script, score, and 21-piece orchestration. 

  • Logo pack. 

  • Video license. 

“As we approach National Arts in Education Week, this announcement further highlights the exceptional work taking place in our high schools - specifically related to the performing arts,” stated Dr. Demond Means, Wauwatosa School District Superintendent.  “Mr. Adam Steffan, Theatre Director at Wauwatosa West, has done a tremendous job developing a safe, inclusive space for students to express themselves and explore their talents through theater. Our community is grateful for his expertise and dedication to our students and the arts.”
