Comedy. By Jennifer Kirkeby.
Cast: 4m., 6w., 1 either gender. You know the original story. A princess drops her golden ball into a well. A frog makes her a deal that he'll dive into the well and return her ball if she will promise to be his friend for always. The princess makes the promise. But when the frog gives her the ball back, the princess runs off without a second thought. In The Far-Fetched Fable of the Frog Prince, we discover why the frog (who's really a prince, by the way) got turned into a frog in the first place. Plus, it just so happens that a school is preparing to do the play The Frog Prince. With a little magical mix-up between the old and the new brought on by a crafty witch, the two stories begin to overlap, intertwine and create complete zaniness. Flexible staging. Approximate running time: 1 hour.
