 A ’Ribbeting’ Happily - Ever - After Story Comes to Life

Lufkin, TX- When a king sends his three sons to find their brides, two return with fair ladies. The last returns with …A FROG?! THE FROG BRIDE with David Gonzalez is a hip adaptation of a classic Russian tale told by a consummate storyteller. This family matinee performance comes to the Temple Theater in Lufkin on Saturday, May 5th at 2:30 pm. The show is suggested for age 7 and up. Tickets are $5 for kids - $10 for adults and can be purchased at the Temple Theater box office, weekdays 11:00 am-5:00 pm. You may also purchase tickets by phone at (936) 633-5454 or online at www.angelinaarts.org. THE FROG BRIDE is sponsored by Popeyes. Season Sponsors are First Bank and Trust East Texas and Temple-Inland.

Storyteller, musician, poet, actor, writer and music therapist, David Gonzalez, is a one-of-a-kind artist. He has created numerous productions that combine compelling drama, music, and multi-media, all of which enchant audiences nationwide with stories of love, hope, courage, and wisdom. As two outstanding musicians weave one of Prokofiev's classics with an original jazz-funk score, David performs every role against a backdrop of stunning live video projection and moving images by painter Wassily Kandinsky. This tale is fun for the whole family and a great choice to introduce children to live theater.

David Gonzalez is the proud recipient of the 2011 International Performing Arts for Youth "Lifetime Achievement Award for Sustained Excellence". In 2010 Mr. Gonzalez was named a Joseph Campbell Foundation Fellow, and was nominated for a 2006 Drama Desk Award for "Unique Theatrical Experience" for his production of The Frog Bride at Broadway's New Victory Theater. For a preview, see David Gonzalez at Kiwanis Park during the Cinco de Mayo celebration, on the Gazebo stage on May 5th at 12:30 pm.
