The Frog Princess, a charming and adventurous show for all ages by Catherine L. Howard, comes to Studio Playhouse in Upper Montclair. Additionally, a sensory friendly show for children and families with special needs will be presented on Saturday, October 29 at 11am.

Queen Natasha is handing over her throne to one of her three sons—Boris the toughest son, Casimir the smartest, or Sacha, who isn’t quite good at anything. Queen Natasha sends her sons to find a wife to make a great queen. Boris and Casimir marry princesses, but Sacha marries…a frog? To determine which of the three brides makes the best wife, they have to pass three challenges, but Sacha’s frog princess is hiding a secret. Will she be able to pass Queen Natasha’s tests?

The Frog Princess is directed by Julie Anne Nolan, stage managed by Elena Bartlett. Jillian Hayes is the assistant stage manager, and Judi Liebert is the associate stage manager.
