"To Kill a Mockingbird" will be directed by Tony Award winner Barlett Sher.

It will hit the stage for the 2017-2018 Broadway season. 

A year later, Disney will bring mega-hit "Frozen" to Broadway, CNN reported.

The announcement was made on Frozen's new Broadway Twitter account.

It will be previewed in the summer of 2017, in an unnamed location, and will land in New York City in spring 2018.

The team that brought "Frozen" to life in movie theaters is reuniting for the stage version. Jennifer Lee will write the show, while Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez will compose the music.
