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. Luckily, Frog gets some good advice from Ollie the wise old Aspen tree, the well-read Alligator, and the kindly Swamp Things. The Ducks, a busy Fly, and dancing Flamingos also come to Frog’s assistance as the Frog’s kindly servant tirelessly tries to set things right. Even the kindly Princess Proper and spunky Princess Peppy get involved and, despite the trouble caused by the mischievous Venus Fly Traps, all ends happily. Our hero becomes a Prince (formerly known as Frog) 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 Missoula Children’s Theatre presents THE WIZ OF THE WEST, the classic story THE WIZARD OF OZ, but with a twist…or should we say, twister?! Follow Tinhorn, Lionel, Scared Crow, Dotty and, of course, her little dog Mooch through a saga of Western adventure and personal discovery. First they tangle with Mad Dog’s pack of bad, barkin’, back-bitin’ hounds who work for the meanest old witch in the West: Hawknose Halley. Then they encounter the brainless Buzzards and the terrifying Tarantulas. The singin’ Coyotes help move things along while Ma and Pa Munch and the rest of the Munch Kin point out the way to Dr. Ozzy, the Wizard of Frontier Medicine. Which way is that? Why Westward, o’ course! THE WIZ OF THE WEST…a fairy tale with a twang!
