A Year with Frog and Toad

A Year with Frog and Toad is a heartwarming musical comedy based on the Caldecott and Newbery award-winning stories by Arnold Lobel. Follow a year in the life of beloved characters Frog, Toad and friends as they skip from season to season and song to song. Adventures abound, from winter sledding to summer swimming, as cheerful Frog and grumpy Toad learn to grow their friendship with each turn of the calendar page.  This Tony Award-nominated musical features an upbeat score with music by Robert Reale and book & lyrics by Willie Reale, and is directed by Jennifer Felts, with musical direction by R. MacKenzie Lewis. As this is our first semester back to in-person productions,  we ask for your patience with any new protocols & procedures, including wearing masks, social distancing and "Text to Park/Snap to Park" payment for parking.
