Hollywood-movie-inspired musical comes to the Overtime

Frog’s Legs: Love Among the Lily Pads
An enchanting musical tale of love and self-importance
Written by Bethany Schwartz
Directed by Nicole Erwin

Created in the style of 20th century Hollywood movie musicals, Frog's Legs is an original musical that explores the experience of being in a relationship and the desire to be accepted and loved. Lighthearted and fun, the musical could best be described as a cross between Midsummer Night’s Dream and Seinfeld with an amphibious twist. Writer Bethany Schwartz conceived the play while penning a one-act for a 24-hour play festival. Schwartz says each of the characters represents a large part of her own real-life romantic experiences. 

The story revolves around Tad (Cesar Duenas) and his quest for ultimate fulfillment in the wake of lost love. Can he stay resilient? Unrealistically romantic, imaginative, but exceedingly arrogant, Tad must learn the hard way that his narcissistic nature isn’t for everyone. Is he willing to make a change in the name of love?

Director Nicole Erwin describes the show as “the musical of all musicals wrapped up in a Hollywood film package. With catchy songs and even a Singin' in the Rain-inspired tap number, audiences will immediately feel like they're being transported onto the set of an Elvis movie musical.” 

Frog’s Legs is an evening full of humor, conflict and spine-tingling danger. Award-winning fight choreographer Morgan Clyde (By Our Hands) created the culminating fight scene. Audiences are sure to enjoy Xanadu-type rock ballads and rollicking show tunes inspired by Meatloaf, 60s doo-wop, Zydeco, and musicals like Once on this Island, The Pajama Game and Grease. With its themes of love, rebirth, the call of nature (plus some tasty dipteran snacks), Frog's Legs is a reason to leap over to the Overtime for a hoppin’ good time.
