Princess Frownsalot

Princess Frownsalot performances are postponed until fall semester 2020. Please contact our booking coordinator Rachel Marks to reschedule your performance.

SYNOPSIS: Did anyone ever tell you that ‘if you keep making that face it’ll get stuck that way’? Well, when Princess Frownsalot frowns one too many times that’s exactly what happens to her, or so it says in the book found by a troupe of players in desperate need of a new production. Adapted from the short story by John Bianchi of Bungalo Books, Princess Frownsalot is a evocative and hilarious story about four people wrestling with the complicated task of expressing their feelings.
Produced by Bad Hats Theatre – Winners of three 2016 Dora Mavor Moore Awards in the Theatre for Young Audiences Category.
