Pantomime Company are pleased to announce that their next production will be
The Frog Prince!
The Frog Prince
Jan 11th – Feb 4th 2017
The Frog Prince is an all new production for the Concordia, combining all the traditional elements of Pantomime with a new story. The story tells of two very different Kingdoms. The penniless Kingdom of Penuria ruled over by King Impecunia, who is in turn ruled by his wife Queen Penny the Lesser. As the story starts they have just welcomed the birth of a Prince, Prince Paragon.
The other realm is the fabulously wealthy Kingdom of Splendora – they have gold mines, diamond mines and oil fields – they are loaded. King Quidsin rules the land, but the evil Lady Morgana (who has a nasty habit of casting spells on people) has her eyes on the land and its wealth. They too have a new royal baby in the land – Princess Lily. Turn the clocks forward seventeen and three quarter years and Paragon and Lily seem destined to meet and fall in love or will one of Morgana’s spells stand in their way?
Whatever the outcome, it promises to be yet another spectacular Concordia Pantomime. The production starts on January 11th and runs until February 4th 2017. Auditions will be held on Sunday July 3rd. Please see below for more details of the main characters
