“Princess Frog – A Musical Fairy Tale”
Book, Music and Lyrics – Lena Pennino-Smith
Adapted from a story by Italo Calvino

Mix three wild boys, who happen to be princes, one frustrated (Queen) mother, three magic rocks and an enchanted frog and you have the makings of a modern fairy tale. Families are a complex cultural quilt and those attending this performance will observe the relationships of siblings and parents. The audience will be called on to help the Queen as they shape the unfolding story.  With 300 versions of this tale told throughout Europe, this new twist by Long Island native Lena Pennino-Smith focuses on the values of family and reminds us all to trust our instincts.
