Princess and the Frog at library Thursday 3:15 p.m.

Posted on: April 26, 2010

In that far, far off country called New Orleans, the food has a spice all its own just like the jazz.  But it’s the people of the Big Easy who make storytelling a pleasure, especially when it’s a fairy tale about a princess who kisses a frog.


The Murphy Library is showing Disney’s new animated film “The Princess and the Frog” on Thursday at 3:15 p.m.  It is rated G and is full of earthy music and Louisiana rhythms.  It runs 97 minutes.  There is no 6 p.m. screening due to election training.



Tiana is a beautiful twenty-something workaholic.  She was born and raised in New Orleans and that means she can cook like an angel.  All she needs is money to start her restaurant.


Prince Naveen is a handsome twenty-something royal slouch visiting New Orleans to party.   But the friendly stranger showing him around has other plans.  Before the prince can say: “Let the good times roll,” he notices his arms are green and he’s turned into – a frog!


The film has jazzy songs, magic cauldrons bubbling with jambalaya and a firefly named Ray in love with a star in the night sky.  Listen closely and you hear the throaty voice of “Nawlins” calling you “cher”.


The kids will like it too.  Call the library at 837-2417.
