Frog & Princess performance








The Frog & The Princess is a poignant re-telling of the Brothers Grimm tale that will entertain and delight family audiences. 

This exquisitely manipulated and humorous puppetry performance explores the meeting of cultures and what happens when a Princess deems a Frog unworthy of being her friend, just because of what he is. As the Frog and the Princess undergo a journey from rejection to friendship they discover that deep down they are not so very different after all. 

This co-production between Rene Baker and Norwich Puppet Theatre has been especially created for 4-8 year olds and their families.


"It is the ingenuity of the staging and dexterity of the puppeteers that set this show apart". 

- Animations Online, Isobel Smith


"the young audience were mesmerised by this humorous and poignant production and the company have clearly found the right balance between music, movement and dialogue. Interactions between the performers and audience felt natural and effortless".

- The Reviews Hub, Clare Boswell
