Musical Show “The Frog Prince”
(Lawton, OK) McMahon Memorial Auditorium will be home of “The Frog Prince” for three performances on Thursday, February 21. The show is rated G, appropriate for all ages and is a production of the award-winning Lawton Community Theatre.
“The Frog Prince” is about a young prince named Eric who has been turned into a frog by an evil witch named Auntie Drizelda. Adapted from the fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm, it is told through comedy, dance and songs. The cast includes Princess Pandora who no one can understand because she too is under a witch’s spell. Three singing frogs, a pet snake who has a “taste” for frogs, a sad king and a silly court jester are also in the story. The songs include a haunting ballad, “How I became a Frog”, a silly song, “I Can’t Sing” and a rousing all company finale, “Happy Ending”. The Frog Prince is enjoyable and fun for all ages and is approximately 60-minutes in length. The book is by Donald J. Leonard, Jr. with music and lyrics by David Reiser. It is produced by special arrangement with Pioneer Drama Service, Inc., Englewood, Colorado.
The project is supported in part by
the Oklahoma Arts Council, which receives support from the State of Oklahoma
and the National Endowment for the Arts. Additional support from the McMahon
Auditorium Authority, Lawton Community Theatre and the City of Lawton allows
Lawton Arts & Humanities Council to offer these special rates.
