Forbidden, Frog Prince

Review in Issue 15-3 | Autumn 2003

Co-written by Georgia Bance and Pilar Orti, Frog Prince is an adaptation/merging of fairy tales The Frog Prince and Sleeping Beauty. Intended for both adults and children, the production is spun with music, comedy and dance presented by a versatile group of performers.

Starling is a young woman who by chance discovers she’s a witch. Having turned an unsuspecting but selfish prince into a frog, her character is the catalyst which draws the two tales together. Flanked by song and comic one-liners, we observe the frog prince as he is rescued from his amphibian state by a petulant princess…

This is a contemporary presentation of the classic stories using modem song styles and dance with performers who appear to be having as much fun with the dialogue and movement as the audience watching them.
