The musical production A Year with Frog and Toad is based on the classic children stories, Frog and Toad by Arnold Lobel. This whimsical play features 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 plant gardens, swim, rake leaves, and go sledding. Often accompanied by other animals (birds, moles, squirrels, a mouse, a turtle, and a snail), they sing and dance through the seasons, with the song "Merry Almost Christmas" ushering in the holidays. They learn life lessons as they go, including one about friendship and rejoicing in the attributes that make each of us different and special. They find that true friendship never goes out of season. (Suitable for all ages.)
