The Frog Princes Synopsis
A theatre troupe is working tirelessly to put on a play. The challenges they face are a part of the usual drama behind any live show. There’s the backstage politics, the forgotten lines, the missed cues, the romances and the rivalries. But for this troupe, the stakes are a bit higher – each cast member faces intellectual, developmental and mental health disabilities.
Led by their charismatic mentor, the troupe learn how to project their talents and perform with their fellow cast-mates, all the while working through their personal struggles to mount an ambitious adaptation of the Frog and the Princess.
Directed by Ryan Mullins & Omar Majeed
