Have you ever wondered ...

How do you recreate the world of the Brothers Grimm?

How do you go from a spoiled princess to a quirky botanist?

And how does a talking frog endear himself to the IT girl?

If you have, you can find out at the free Stage Tour of the WonderQuest production of “The Frog Prince,” set for 6 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 18, at Brenau University’s Pearce Auditorium, 500 Washington St. SE, Gainesville.

WonderQuest is the young audiences division of the Gainesville Theatre Alliance, a nationally acclaimed collaboration of Gainesville State College, Brenau University, theatre professionals and the North Georgia community.

“The Frog Prince” director and playwright Gay Hammond will talk with visitors about the challenges of performing this well-known children’s classic and why she updated the princess character.

Scenic designer Larry Cook and guest costume designer Jeannie Crawford will discuss their research and inspiration for the Latin-themed visual elements of the play, and patrons at the event will be treated to a scene from the play.

Performances of “The Frog Prince” run Sept. 28 through Oct. 6. For show times, visit the GTA website, www.gainesvilletheatrealliance.org.
