Roles are reversed in this colorful adaptation of the Russian folk tale. Queen Natasha is tired and wants to turn over the throne to one of her three sons. But which one? Each of them has some, but not all, of the qualities needed to be a good king, and the queen reveals that the difference between a good king and a great king is the woman behind the throne. So she sends her sons off to find wives, using an arrow to guide them. The youngest son Sasha’s arrow pierces Natalia ... a frog! Though the ladies and gentlemen of the kingdom laugh, Sasha proceeds with the marriage to fulfill his duty. You’re audiences will be charmed with this delightful and funny tale. Without any preachiness, this very clever story also teaches that it pays to be kind to everyone ... including frogs!
Beginning February 24th, rehearsals will be Monday thru Thursday from 7:00 - 9:00 P.M.
