Arnold Lobel's well-loved characters hop from the page to the stage in Robert and Willie Reale's family friendly musical. A Year With Frog And Toad remains true to the spirit of the original stories as it follows two great friends, the cheerful and popular Frog and the rather grumpy Toad through four fun-filled seasons. Waking from hibernation in the spring, they proceed to plant gardens, swim, rake leaves and go sledding, learning life lessons along the way, including a most important one about friendship and rejoicing in the attributes that make each of us different and special. A score that bubbles with melody and wit, it's jazzy upbeat sound is a perfect match for the hopping, crawling and flying denizens that inhabit Frog and Toad's world. Itís clever book and lyrics and snazzy music can serve as a great introduction to theatre for youngsters, while keeping adults entertained as well. A new show, destined to become a classic, A Year With Frog And Toad is inventive, exuberant and totally enchanting.
