A Year with Frog and Toad

Book and lyrics by Willie Reale
Based on the books by Arnold Lobel
Directed by Becky Cherlin Baird

June 15-16, 21-23, 2013

North Coast Rep brings Frog and Toad to Life! Arnold Lobel ‘s beloved characters hop from the page to the stage in this version of Robert and Willie Reale ‘s Tony-nominated musical. This whimsical show follows two great friends — the eternally optimistic Frog and the rather grumpy Toad — through four, fun-filled seasons.

Waking from hibernation in the Spring, Frog and Toad plant gardens, swim, rake leaves, go sledding, eat cookies and learn life lessons along the way. These unlikely best friends come to understand it is their differences that make them unique and special. Whimsical and charming, A YEAR WITH FROG AND TOAD KIDS tells the story of a friendship that endures all seasons.
