Saint-Saens’ fanciful score serves as a canvas upon which three classic storybook fairy tales are interwoven: “The Three Little Pigs”, “The Tortoise and the Hare”, and “The Ugly Duckling”. This production is performed without dialog, allowing the classical score to shine. The puppets and puppeteers perform on a raised stage, fully visible to the audience.

The Frog Prince

Our production of this classic fairy tale follows the spoiled princess Ofelia on her birthday. Her life is changed by a chance meeting with a frog – who we know to be a handsome prince, transformed by a witch. When she loses her new golden ball down a well, the princess promises to grant the frog three wishes in exchange for the ball’s recovery. Will Ofelia follow through with her promises, and will the frog turn back into the handsome Prince?

Performance will be held at North Tahoe Event Center 8318 N Lake Blvd Kings Beach, CA 96143
