“The Frog Prince” Synopsis
“The Frog Prince” is a classic fairytale (most famously told by the Brothers Grimm) about a princess (Lilly) who befriends a frog who is actually a prince under a spell. The production features original marionettes — puppets on strings — created by puppet master Tom Tichenor more than 45 years ago. The soundtrack is composed of original music, with lyrics by Brian Hull, the head of Wishing Chair Productions.
For the Kids to Know
There are lots of different kinds of puppets: marionettes, hand puppets, stick puppets, shadow puppets and even people-size puppets with actors inside of them. Watching puppets talk is nothing short of magical for toddlers, and it’s a great idea to get your child acquainted with the story before you go — it will make it easier to follow along.FREE
