A YEAR WITH FROG AND TOAD
music by Robert Reale
book and lyrics by Willie Reale
based on the books by Arnold Lobel
directed by Nick DeGruccio
​November 6-22, 2015

Theatre for Young Audiences, Julianne Argyros Stage

Oh, what fun! Caldecott and Newbery award winner Arnold Lobel’s beguiling stories come to life onstage—complete with foot-tapping music. Frog, Toad and their friends plant a garden, fly kites, swim in the pond (but turn away because Toad looks funny in a bathing suit) and skip rope with a large and terrible frog. Or sometimes they just like to settle down in a warm house and sip a bowl of soup. This song-filled year in the life of two charming woodland characters was a Broadway hit that captivated children, adults—and critics (Variety declared it “delighted young eyes and minds”).
