The Frog Prince

Book & Lyrics by Stan Gill
Music by Cindy Bright

The Princess is not supposed to be down by the well ... but the Princess does not always behave. When she loses her precious golden ball down the well, a Frog comes to the rescue and retrieves it. All he desires in return is her promise of friendship, but the Princess breaks her word. When the King discovers this, he intervenes and insists that his daughter fulfill her part of the bargain.
