"The Frog Prince"

Saturday, October 1 and Sunday, October 2 @ 1:00PM and 3:00PM

About the Show:

An enchantment has turned handsome young Prince Tad into a hideous beast. The only way to reverse the spell is for someone to fall in love with him in spite of his beastly appearance. Will a kind young woman be able to see past his looks and love him for whom he truly is inside?

All ends happily as the characters learn about being kind and keeping promises. "The Frog Prince" features a colorful cast of puppet characters, live voices and sound effects, and behind-the-scenes puppet demonstrations, with a riveting classical music score! BUY TICKETS HERE

About the Artists:

The Pumpernickel Puppets are the creation of John McDonough of Worcester, Massachusetts. John was four years old when he saw his first puppet show, and he immediately knew that he wanted to be a puppeteer. By his teens, John was presenting shows all over the New England area. The Pumpernickel Puppets have had the honor of appearing at the Puppet Showplace Theatre, the Boston Children’s Museum, the Institute of Professional Puppetry Arts at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre Center, the Smithsonian Institution in Washington D.C., the Cultural Olympiad at the Center For Puppetry Arts in Atlanta, Georgia, and the prestigious International Festival of Puppet Theatre sponsored by the Jim Henson Foundation at the Joseph Papp Public Theatre in New York. For each production, John creates and performs all of his own puppets, which range from small hand puppets to larger-than-life figures.
