Fred the Frog doens't like eating flies. He'd rather sit at a table of real food just like the Royal Famiy. Why? Because he was once a prince, of course! When his loving Grandma tells Fred that to turn human again he must be kissed by a Princess, he's in luck when a spoiled little Princess from next door just happens to toss her golden ball into their swamp, knowing poor Grandma on the head! Meanwhile, the unhappy Princess is being pushed by her royal parents to marry Crown, an obnoxious little prince who rides around the house on his make-believe golden Harley. The Princess, of course, doesn't want either one of them! However, Freddy is determined to show the Princess that it's what's on the inside that counts, and he needs your help. Featuring seven original, catchy songs and plenty of audience participation, The Frog Prince is a good dose of fun to start off the summer!

Although best known for The Secret Garden with its bold little character of Mary Lennox, Frances Hodgson Burnett also wrote of another heroic young girl — once popularized by Shirley Temple — named Sara Crewe. Sara, like Mary, is born and raised in India, until one day her father sends her to a boarding school in England, run by the stern and icy Miss Minchin. Impressed by her wealth of toy dolls and pretty clothes, Miss Minchin and the other girls dote on their "Little Princess". But when it is discovered that her father has gone missing, Miss Minchin becomes a real-life wicked stepmother to the suddenly poor and orphaned Sara, moving her to the attic and demanding of her endless chores. However poor and mistreated Sara becomes, nothing seems to break her little spirit. She discovers that being a princess does not mean living in a castle and having fancy clothes ... it means being kind and brave. A classic Cinderella story enjoyable for girls and boys alike, don't miss this clever and endearing little fairy tale.
