About: The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County is the original short story that made Mark Twain famous! In this lively leaping stage adaptation this classic story comes to life as we explore the themes of honesty, transparency, and following the golden rule! Jim Smiley has built quite the reputation as a betting man. He will bet on everything from a horse race to a chicken race and anything in between! If you let him, before you know it he will have you gambling with the very shoes on your feet! What happens when Jim’s “good luck” comes abruptly to an end? Audiences will experience first-hand the importance of being honest, showing kindness and a gentle reminder to treat others the way you would like to be treated!

*The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County is best suited for elementary school audiences.
