Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, the songwriting duo who penned the tunes for Disney smash “Frozen” and won an Academy Award for song “Let It Go,” will follow up their Oscar win with their new stage musical “Up Here,” set for a run at San Diego’s La Jolla Playhouse during the theater’s 2015-16 season.

Alex Timbers, helmer of Off Broadway buzzmagnet “Here Lies Love” and current Broadway musical “Rocky,” directs the show, which will play at La Jolla with the backing of a team of commercial producers that includes Scott Sanders Theatrical Prods. (“After Midnight”) along with Victor Alvarez and Sally Horchow Intl. Prods.

Storyline of the original musical follows Millennial-generation protag Dan, whose potential romance with a woman is imperiled by his tumultuous subconscious mind.

Sanders is attached to “Up Here” with an eye toward taking the project to Broadway, the producer said. Lopez is already repped on the Main Stem with “The Book of Mormon.”

The exact scheduling slot for “Up Here” at La Jolla remains to be set.
