August Calendar of Events
Magic Circle Theater "The Frog Prince" by Cleve Haubold puts a delightful spin on an inept magician, a king with financial troubles, a handsome prince who longs for his carefree frog days, a dragon who just wants to get back to his crossword puzzle and a beautiful princess—all of whom populate this irreverent take on the classic Grimm fairy tale. Balch Arena Theater, 10:30 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. Tickets for all performances are $6. Visa, MasterCard and Discover are accepted, and group rates are available. For reservations and information, call (617) 627-3493.
