frogtoad-actorpic2A Year WITH FROG AND TOAD KIDS 

Adapted from the three-time-Tony-nominated Broadway hit comes the wonderful play, A Year with Frog and Toad KIDS. Based on Arnold Lobel’s well-loved books, the jazzy, upbeat score bubbles with melody. Part vaudeville, part make-believe, and all charm, A Year with Frog and Toad KIDS tells the story of a friendship that endures throughout the seasons. This whimsical musical follows two great friends – the cheerful, popular Frog, and the rather grumpy Toad.  Waking from hibernation, Frog and Toad plant gardens, rake leaves, go sledding and learn life lessons along the way. Throughout the year, two best friends celebrate and rejoice in the differences that make them unique and special.
