From the frog's four-note ditty to the prince's Ode to Joy-with a tip of the hat to Beethoven. Inspired by "The Frog King" by the Brothers Grimm "Sisters" Can two sisters with nothing in common join forces and become friends? Flowers ring-a-ling. Toads and frogs clunk and thunk. A spellbound tale of self-discovery. Inspired by "Diamonds & Toads" by Charles Perrault "Gabriel, the Stargazer" Will the daring goatherd win the love of a dancing princess? A scat-singing genie! Magical tinkling leaves! March, fox trot, tango, waltz-Gabriel's tempos as he pursues his princess. Inspired by "The Twelve Dancing Princesses" by the Brothers Grimm THE SILLY SONGS "Dust and Dirt." Our take on Mozart's Eine Kleine Nacht Musik. "Animal ABCs." Funny animals, moderato and presto, with Mozart's familiar tune. "Missus Fa-doo-fa-dee." Teatime at the Fa-doo-fa-dees. Hungry? "Fruit & Vegetable ABCs." Yummy fruits and vegetables, word play, opera, a backwards alphabet-and Mozart (what, again?!). "I Don't Recall." Hammed-up cliché-fest with Rachmaninoff-style piano accompaniment and space for your own inanity. "I Had a Frog." Nine ingenious animal friends-plus a verse to sing about your own zany beast. So make a mess with "Dust & Dirt" & sing a little Mozart "night music"! Learn the names of some strange fruits, vegetables, & animals along with your ABCs! Make up your own verses to "Missus Fa-doo-fa-dee," "I Don't Recall," & "I Had a Frog"!
