The Frog Prince is an action-packed adventure crammed with colourful characters who revel in slapstick hi-jinks, magical mishaps and musical mischief.
Written and produced by TAPAC’s Executive Director Sarah Somerville, this hilarious re-telling of the much-loved fairytale is given a modern, kiwi spin.
Princess Matilda is not interested in doing normal ‘Princess-y’ stuff, she wants to play rugby and she’s desperate to make the first fifteen at school, but first she must deal with arch-rival and bully Petunia Poopersnot.
When Matilda tries to take advantage of a passing frog, who kindly retrieves her golden rugby ball from a palace pond, she learns the hard way that when you make a promise you must keep it. And as the day of the try-outs dawns, Matilda is forced to reconsider her habit of judging on appearances.
“This traditional fairytale is turned upside down in a highly original New Zealand flavoured re-telling kids will love! The Frog Prince is a truly wonderful piece of children's theatre, perfectly pitched to please a younger audience, and with enough delightfully clever comic action to keep any adult minders amused and appreciative.” Theatreview.org.nz
