Froggie is a delightful show perfect for but not limited to younger audiences…Take the family or friends and have a great time.” James Cole, The Cape Cod Chronicle

“In Froggie Went A-Courtin’, Steph DeFerie has created roles appropriate for young children through adult. Several roles can be combined, and players can play multiple roles, if desired. Once again, Ms. DeFerie’s wonderful sense of humor charms throughout. This play is guaranteed to be fun for both the players and the audience." Karen McPherson, Drama Club Director

Froggie has a perfectly nice life, but lately, it feels as if something's missing. When his friend Piggles suggests that missing something might be the lovely Miss Mousie, Froggie decides to take a chance and woo her. But before they can live happily ever after, she is kidnapped...or maybe not. When Froggie's would-be romantic rescue attempt turns into a disastrous comedy of errors, can all be made right again? Will Froggie ever make it back home to wed Miss Mousie? And who will save everyone from the Lily-White Duck? It's The Wind in the Willows meets Don Quixote...or Frog Quixote!
