About: The Frog & The Princess

The Frog and the Princess by Norwich Puppet Theatre
Date: Sunday 23 Feb, 1.30pm & 3.30pm
Age: Suitable 4-8 years 50 minutes
Directed and designed by Rene Baker.

The Frog & the Princess is a poignant re-telling of the Brothers Grimm tale that will entertain and delight family audiences.

This exquisitely manipulated and humorous puppetry performance explores the meeting of cultures and what happens when a Princess deems a Frog unworthy of being her friend, just because of what he is. As the Frog and the Princess undergo an emotional journey from rejection to friendship, they discover that deep down they are not so different after all.

“I am still amazed by the power of animated objects to fascinate, amuse, provoke and perplex human beings and how a scrap of wood can make an audience gasp with a simple gesture,” explains the visual theatre director, Rene Baker, who also
used this popular fairy tale as a way of getting children to understand about, otherness, prejudice and discrimination.
