The Frog Princes is a moving story of the personal transformation that highlights the accomplishments, both theatrical and personal, of the cast members of an original play mounted by the Faculty of Fine Arts' Centre for the Arts in Human Development. The Frog and the Princess: A Musical Ecodrama, which featured participants with intellectual and developmental disabilities, was designed to be both creative and therapeutic.
After the presentation of the documentary, produced by award-winning Eyesteel Film and directed by Ryan Mullins (BFA 05, Film Studies) and Omar Majeed, the cast members will participate in a question-and-answer session.
This screening is a fundraiser for the Centre for the Arts in Human Development’s next play, an original musical theatre production to be performed in June 2012.
When: Monday, March 26, 2012, from 7 to 8:30 p.m.
Where: Alumni Auditorium, Room H-110, Henry F. Hall Building (1455 De Maisonneuve Blvd. W.), Sir George Williams Campus
Cost: Suggested donation of $10
