Tickets are now available for Missoula Children’s Theatre’s production of “The Frog Prince,” which will take place on Saturday, June 25 at 1pm during the Shoreline Arts Festival.
Up to sixty local students will be cast in the play on Monday, June 20, rehearse for a week with professional actor/directors from Missoula Children’s Theatre touring company, and perform a show on Saturday for your viewing pleasure.
About “The Frog Prince”:
Deep in the royal swamp, a lonely Frog retrieves a golden ball for Princess Prim in exchange for friendship and comfort. The spoiled princess doesn’t want to live up to her part of the bargain, and puts her royal Knights on alert. And so the trouble begins.
Luckily, Frog gets some good advice from Ollie the wise old Aspen tree, the well-read Alligator, and the kindly Swamp Things.
The Ducks, a busy Fly, and dancing Flamingos also come to Frog’s assistance as the Frog’s kindly servant tirelessly tries to set things right.
Even the Queen, kindly Princess Proper, and spunky Princess Peppy get involved and, despite the trouble caused by the nasty Venus Fly Traps, all ends happily.
Our hero becomes a Prince (formerly known as Frog) and realizes that friendships are made, not bought — and he discovers that it is not what you are but who you are that counts.
There will be one performance of this show on Saturday, June 25 at 1pm, at the Shoreline Center Auditorium (north end of the complex).
Tickets are $8, General Admission. Get tickets now on Brown Paper Tickets, or at the door.
Group auditions are held on June 20th at 3:45pm at the Shoreline Center – open to all students grades K-12. Pre-register your young actor on the Arts Council’s website.
