The Frog and the Princess

Saturday 19th Apr, 2:00 pm

The Frog & The Princess smThe Frog and The Princess is an entertaining and poignant re-telling of the traditional Frog Prince tale by the Brother’s Grimm. A co-production between Rene Baker and Norwich Puppet Theatre uses a beautiful blend of puppetry and music to tell the tale of what can happen when different cultures meet. Princess deems 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. Suitable for 4-8 year olds and their families.
