The Frog Prince

Friday, October 7 * Grades: K-6

Come and see our local youth shine as the Missoula Children’s Theatre presents The Frog Prince. Deep in the royal swamp, a lonely Frog retrieves a golden ball for Princess Prim in exchange for friendship and comfort. The spoiled princess doesn’t want to live up to her part of the bargain and puts her royal Knights on alert. And so the trouble begins. In the end, the frog becomes a Prince and realizes that friendships are made, not bought—and he discovers that it is not what you are but who you are that counts.

The Adventures of Peter and the Wolf

Thursday, October 13 * Grades: K-6

Join us, The Palm Beach Symphony and Maestro Gerard Schwarz as we embark on a newly imagined version of Sergei Prokoviev’s musical masterpiece, Peter and the Wolf. Peter, his grandfather, the bird, the duck, the cat, and of course the wolf, all play instruments and unite, despite their differences, to create a unique orchestra for their community. Beyond the pond and the meadow, under the twinkling lights of the town’s great gazebo, the animals and characters come together for a magical performance of Prokofiev’s triumphal march, delighting the crowd and surprising each other with new and lasting friendships.

Presented in partnership with Palm Beach Symphony

Monday, October 17 * Grades: PK-3

"Cows that type? Hens on strike! Whoever heard of such a thing!" Farmer Brown cries. When his granddaughter Jenny comes for a visit, Farmer Brown declares the farm a tech-free zone. He takes her laptop in the cold barn with the shivering cows who use her computer to type messages requesting blankets. "No way," replies Farmer Brown. "No blankets!" So the cows go on strike and the chickens join them in solidarity. No blankets? No milk! No eggs! Will Farmer Brown give in to the animals' demands? Will Jenny get her computer back? Find out in a hilariously moving musical about negotiation and compromise, based on the Caldecott Honor Book by Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin.
