TRAILER: A Year with Frog and Toad

A delightful story based on the picture books by Arnold Lobel, this musical adaptation is a treat for all ages; children and the child within.

Waking from hibernation in the early spring, the perky Frog and the worrywart Toad celebrate and rejoice in the differences that make them unique and special. These two best-friends plant gardens, swim underwater, rake leaves, go sledding, bake cookies, and learn to appreciate each other's distinct qualities.

Part vaudeville, part make-believe, all charm, A Year With Frog and Toad tells the story of a friendship that weathers all seasons.
