since I gave you that golden ball you have been in a hurry to finish your
Princess: I can hardly wait to hold it again, Father. It´s my favorite
toy. (There is a knock at the door). I wonder who that can be?
Frog: (from off stage) Princess, oh, Princess, open the door! I am
your true love forevemore!
Princess: (opens and closes the door quickly) Oh, no! It´s the frog.
King: (touches the princess´s forehead) My dear, you´re pale.
What´s the matter?
Princess: (crying) There´s a horrible frog at the door. I dropped my
golden ball into a well and he got it back for me. I told him he could live at
the castle. But I never thought he would be able to find his way here.
Frog: (knocks at the door) Princess, oh, Princess, open the door! I
am your true love forevermore!
Princess: Oh, father, what am I to do?
King: You gave your word and you must keep it. Let the frog in.
