YOUNGSTERS are preparing to take the spotlight at Leamington’s Loft Theatre.
Act One, the Loft’s resident youth theatre group, make their debut performance on the main stage in The Princess, The Frog and Big Nosed Prince – a new fairytale written and directed by the group’s principal Elizabeth Morris.
The family friendly tale tells how heroine, Princess Leana (Ellie Churchill), was placed under a spell by a wicked witch, making her unable to fall in love with anyone.
When she grows up, Leana is determined to find a cure that will release her from the spell. Accompanied by her very best friend The Frog (Elina Bowmer), she sets off to search the whole of Story Land to find the answer.
During their journey they meet lots of well-known characters including Pinocchio, Dick Whittington, the Seven Dwarves, the Big Bad Wolf, and the Three Little Pigs – but none of them can help her. T
hey also meet a prince (William Wright) who – despite having a very big nose – is extremely vain and cannot understand why Leana does not immediately fall in love with him.
Will Princess Leana be able to find the secret that lifts the evil curse? Will she live happily ever after?
The Princess, The Frog and Big Nosed Prince can be seen on July 24 and 25.
