ANDREW M FRODAHL
|Andrew’s passion for writing began at an early age. In the third grade he used his mother’s typewriter to write his first story. Throughout high school Andrew traveled across the country with his family as a troupe of Puppeteers. He wrote puppet skits and routines for the productions. He is a proud member of the Puppeteers of America.|
Since high school, Andrew has published two stage plays, 'Believing in a Finley Christmas' in 2012 and ‘Back to the Nativity’ in 2016 both by Eldridge Publishing. Produced stage plays include an adaptation of Margery Williams’s classic 'The Velveteen Rabbit' (Penobscot Theatre Company 2010, New York Children’s Theater Festival 2012, Centre Theatre 2014), and original works 'Liferaft' (Penobscot Theatre Company 2011), and 'The Blueberry Balladeer' (Penobscot Theatre Company 2012).
'The Velveteen Rabbit' was chosen to be produced off Broadway at the first annual New York Children’s Theater Festival (NYCTF) in New York City. NYCTF is a play festival with board members/adjudicator’s including Thomas Schumacher of Disney Theatrical, Cheryl Henson of the Jim Henson foundation, Kevin Clash of Sesame Street, and Carol Demas of the Magic Garden to name a few.
Andrew has worked in the live theatre industry for over fifteen years. He has worked in 90 productions as a Stage Manager, Production Manager, Producer, Puppet Coach, Designer, & Technical Director.
Andrew would like to thank God and his family for all their support. Andrew lives in Northern Maine with his wife Ashley and their three sons, Axel, Hans, and Finn.
