The Cockpit

 

Music: Jack Dauner

Words: Kristin Hurst

 

She is a toad. He is a frog. According to the laws of nature, their union is an impossible one. But their hearts sing otherwise. A series of misfortunes and bad timing separate these star-crossed lovers… forever? 

 

The unique mom and son team, Jack Dauner and Kristin Hurst, present Toadette, the Frog Opera.

Composed by Jack as a puppet opera when he was 13 years old, with a libretto by Kristin, this live production of Toadette blends a world of fantasy with romantic-style music, spectacular costumes, and unforgettable characters.

 

Young audiences, families, opera lovers and wildlife enthusiasts will be enchanted by Toadette, the Frog Opera.
