Tuesday August 28th, 7-9PM Red Arrow Gallery in Joshua Tree
This fairy tale was the first told by the Brother's Grimm. Like many fairy tales, it has been reworked, revised, and sanitized over the years. If you've never heard the original, the story might surprise you. "Frog Prince: The Musical" draws on the Grimm's version and combines old-fashioned oral storytelling with original music. It is a joint project of mine (Catherine Svehla) and singer-songwriter Phillip Rosenberg that we developed for the upcoming symposium for the Study of Myth. We are excited to preview it at the the High Desert Mythological Roundtable. Come join the fun!
The High Desert Mythological RoundTable meets the last Tuesday of every month at the Red Arrow Gallery. All open-minded adults who enjoy a good story are welcome to join our thought-provoking conversation. Bring cookies or other goodies to share. Donations for the storyteller and the Joseph Campbell Foundation are much appreciated.
