(Lawton, OK) February 21 at 6:30 pm, the McMahon Memorial Auditorium will be home of “The Frog Prince”. The show is rated G, appropriate for all ages and is a production of the award-winning Lawton Community Theatre, now in their 67th year.
It is the story of 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 that 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. The book is by Donald J. Leonard, Jr. with music and lyrics by David Reiser.
