The Frog and the Princess

Tell a friend:

8th March 2014 - 2pm

Venue: Loughborough Town Hall

The Frog & The Princess is an entertaining and poignant re-telling of the traditional Frog Prince tale by the Brothers Grimm. This co-production between Rene Baker and Norwich Puppet Theatre will look at what can happen when different cultures meet, using a beautiful blend of puppetry and music that will entertain and delight family audiences.

This adaptation has been especially created for 4-8 year olds and their families and focuses on how a Princess deems a Frog to be unworthy of being her friend, just because of what he is. As the Frog and the Princess undergo an emotional journey from rejection to friendship, these humorous characters with flaws, foibles and feelings display traits that children will recognise and empathise with.

The drama in The Frog & The Princess is played out by exquisitely manipulated puppets in a unique and sensitive relationship to the performers.
