New drama group makes zany de­but

Kapi-Mana News - - ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT -

A new per­for­mance troupe for chil­dren is hop­ing a zany mix of roy­alty and pond life will tickle kids’ fancy th­ese hol­i­days.

The Pan­toloons, an in­de­pen­dent group made up of mem­bers of Porirua Lit­tle The­atre, are stag­ing The Frog Prince at the Gryphon The­atre in Welling­ton this week.

A witch has put a spell on Prince Fer­gus and turned him into a frog. Will he have to live in a pond and eat bugs?

The only way he can be­come a prince again is to kiss a princess.

Zip the drag­on­fly buzzes in to help Fer­gus out and they meet the spoilt Princess Patty. But the princess doesn’t want to kiss a hor­ri­ble nasty frog and Ron the Royal Frog­catcher is de­ter­mined to catch Fer­gus.

Will Princess Patty agree to smooch Fer­gus? Will Ron catch Fer­gus and throw him into the royal dun­geon?

As well as catch­ing up with all th­ese colour­ful characters, kids will get to join in and learn the Leap Frog Dance.

The Frog Prince

Gone green: Prince Fer­gus is in for a spir­ited ad­ven­ture in The Frog Prince.
