Philadelphia Kids Spotlight: December '06

For years, the Arden Theatre Company has been presenting high-quality children's theater -- and this season appears to be no exception with the Arden's production of The BFG (Big Friendly Giant). Adapted by David Wood from Roald Dahl's beloved children's book, this is the story of a young orphan who embarks on a fantastical journey into the land of giants. Acclaimed designer Aaron Cromie brings the tale to life with a collection of puppets and dolls ranging from the miniature to the towering 14-foot-tall giant (through January 21).

The Philadelphia Theatre Company is producing the first family production in their history with their staging of storyteller David Gonzalez's The Frog Bride (December 22-30). For this contemporary adaptation of an old Russian fairy tale, Gonzalez employs a jazz-funk score and video projections to bring a modern slant on the classic coming-of-age story about a prince who goes in search of a wife and instead returns with a frog.
