The Frog Prince and the Princess Brat, by Jeannette Jaquish, is a funny, witty adventure about honesty, determination, silliness, and the joy of life. Every actor has good lines and every line progresses the plot which is full of very funny little tweaks. It is a sophisticated script appropriate for amateur or professional theaters.
This script has been written in modular form so a director can adjust its length by skipping some scenes.
The basic story is the one you are familiar with (with a jealous pet thrown in): Princess Conceita promises three days of friendship to a frog who retrieves her ball, then tries to renege on her promise. Eventually she grows to love the frog who turns into a prince when she kisses him. In longer versions, Princess Conceita and the Frog give her tutor a hard time and shock visiting princesses. There is a rebellion in the land with deception on both sides. The princess and her friends are kidnapped and guess who rescues them?
The short version needs 5 or 6 actors. Longer versions need 8 more, though some can play multiple parts.
The kids LOVED the scripts!! The only change we see we may need is that the Frog will be played by an actor in costume except scenes where the puppet is removed from the puppeteer and held by the actors..."

In this Frog Prince script, a bratty princess makes a false promise to an obnoxious frog, befuddling her jealous royal dog, infuriating the imperious Queen and vexing the sarcastic butler and two snotty visiting princesses, finally charming a grinning boy prince. This script is fast moving, creative, surprising and funny, funny, funny! AND it is in rhyme for easier memorization and lots of charm!
The longest version has a Villain, some bumbling but good natured Kidnappers, a Revolution sub-plot, and an exciting ending.
