Jacksonville Opera Theatre will present preview performances of the original opera “The Frog Prince” on November 8-9 at 7:30 p.m. in the Performance Center of Jacksonville State University’s Mason Hall.  Melanie Martin Long of Kennesaw State University in Kennesaw, Georgia wrote the book and lyrics. Jacksonville State University music professor Dr. James Woodward composed original music. The children’s opera features twelve seasoned JSU students, all ready to bring the story of the famous Grimm’s Fairy tale to life.

“The Frog Prince” is a brand-new musical written specifically for children, but adults will enjoy the Disney-like quality of the music, as well.  Performances for school children will be in January in Oxford at the new performing arts center and in Gadsden at Wallace Hall. Performances mark the beginning of the tenth anniversary season of Jacksonville Opera Theatre.

Join us for a fantastical journey taken by a prince who has been cursed to live as a frog. The only way for the spell to be broken is for a princess to fall in love with him.  The end of his seven-year curse is coming to an end.  Will he find true love in time?  Come find out!

Tickets will be reduced for the preview performances from regular price to $5.  For tickets, call 1-800-838-3006 or order online at www.JacksonvilleOpera.Org
