Orlando Shakespeare Theater in partnership with UCF kicks off its 2015-2016 Children’s series on June 18, with the family-friendly World Premiere adaptation of The Brothers Grimm’s The Frog and the Princess.
In the story, Prince Gerwyn wants to marry the beautiful princess, but he’ll have to get through her evil stepmother first. With her magical golden ball, the Step Queen casts a spell that turns Gerwyn into a slimy frog forever. Will Gerwyn and his Princess live hoppily ever after? Find out with this humorous production aimed at the young ones.
The production features Kristin Shirilla as the Princess, and a frog puppet as her co-star.
Previews are June 18 and 19 at 10:30am, and tickets are $9 for all. Opening Day is June 20 with shows at 2pm and 4:30pm, with tickets $15 adults/$12 children. There is a free Opening Day celebration one hour before the performances for ticket holders.
