    Girl kisses frog …
       Frog turns into Prince …

But what happens next?? Do they get married? What if they have kids?  What would it be like if your father had once been a frog?  Would you be afraid of turning into a frog, too? 

I wanted to know the answer to that question.  That’s why I wrote “The Frog Princess” -- because sometimes we have to write the stories we need to hear. And I wrote it as a musical, because music is how I explore ideas and emotions -- and I love fusing music and stories.

So, meet Amphibia, daughter of the Frog Prince.  For years the Frog Prince has groomed his daughter to take over the Kingdom. Now he's about to die, but Amphibia's evil governess tells her that the moment she wears her father's crown, she'll turn into a frog -- just like her father did.

It doesn’t help that Amphibia’s only friends are the the wisecracking Fool – and the frogs in the pond. It doesn’t help that she thinks she LOOKS like a frog!  And what about love?  If her secret frog-self comes out, could anyone ever love her?

“The Frog Princess” is about facing the fears of who we are inside. It’s about romance, desire, the power of both tears and laughter, and about overcoming the fear of humiliation as we discover ... and reveal ... who we really are.

So grab your inner frog and join me singing “Ribbity Bibbity Bebop” in "The Frog Princess."

Dear Miss Henson-Conant,

I was fortunate enough to be with all those excited children today at your concert at the Majestic in San Antonio. It was Magic!!

Little children all around me were dancing in the aisles! What fun it was to be part of that concert! I noticed all the young fans gathered around you after the concert. They are the future of the arts. Thank you for giving them a glimpse of what a brilliant future that could be.

I just want to thank you again for a magical afternoon of music, theater and dance! Bravo! Bravo!! Bravo!!!

Sincerely,  Amy La Presto
