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.

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.

Recommended for adults, teens, ‘tweens, youth and children 4+
