The musical play is based on a Russian fairy tale adapted by Topanga resident Keith Bilderbeck. Tina Sanchez stars as Elena the Fair and a child from the audience will be chosen to play the frog.

The show is best suited for children ages four to 10 and their families. Children under two years old are free.
