"Absorbing, funny and suspenseful, it is, in the great tradition of storytelling, enchanting."—New York Times

When a King sends his three sons to find brides, two return with fair ladies. The third returns with...a FROG?! In this hip new adaptation of a classic Russian folktale, witty and expressive storyteller David Gonzalez performs every role against a vivid video backdrop inspired by the art of Vasily Kandinsky. Two live musicians (violinist Christian Howes and composer/keyboardist Daniel Kelly) interweave themes from Sergei Prokofiev with an original jazz-funk score. Filled with comic sparkle, this coming-of-age story engages the imaginations and opens the hearts of all ages.

If you like young people’s shows that brim with magic AND intelligence, try this kickoff production of our annual series. Stay tuned for info on two more shows coming in the winter and spring.
