The Frogs is a project in conjunction with the National Museum of Wildlife Art. The play will be performed outside in the museum’s new amphitheater from mid-July to early Sept. during sunset as a free outdoor event.

The Frogs by Aristophanes, directed by Macey Mott:

After reading the script a few months back, Jamie Reilly dubbed this play as the original buddy road-trip story.  This classic Greek comedy follows Dionysus and his trusty servant, Xanthias, as they travel to the underworld in search of the world’s greatest playwright.  Many adventures and contests paint the story including a run in with The Frogs on the River Styx.  The play will be staged in the traditional Greek style including mask work by Evie Lewis, original costumes by Macey Mott and Christina Croxell, and using the sun for lighting.

Picnic dinners, provided by Shades Café, will be for sale starting a half hour prior to performance time.  Audience members choosing to ride their bicycles or walk to the show will receive a discount on the picnic dinners.  Veggie or Meat Picnics are $15 each with a $2 off discount if you bike or walk to the show.  Special Frog Cupcakes are $3.50 each.

Riot Act, Inc. T-shirts will be available for sale for $15 each.  Both men’s and women’s sizes are available.

A run of show silent auction will be held for the masks used in the performance.  The masks may then be worn by the winners of the auction to a masquerade party after our last performance on Sept. 7.  Mask Silent Auction:  www.32auctions.com/thefrogsmasks

Hope to see you there!
