“The Fabulous Johnny Frog” – Live puppet show (in English)
In the Wealthy Theatre Micro-cinema. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
Heroic. Brilliant. Tenacious. Johnny Frog is none of these things. Tossed around in a world of calamities and contradictions the hapless Johnny Frog is a simple man, some would say a cowardly man, hungrier for a sandwich than for adventure. Bouncing from imaginary food diseases to mistaken swordfights to claims he is pregnant (is that even possible?), most of the time he has no idea what’s going on around him. This entertaining and educational presentation uses innovative shadow puppetry to introduce young audiences to seventeenth century Spanish theatre and a play format known as the entremés, featuring Spain’s most celebrated stage buffoon, Juan Rana: the Fabulous Johnny Frog! Written by GVSU Prof. Jason Yancey. Performance in English with some Spanish.
