SYNOPSIS:

Based on Arnold Lobel’s beloved children’s books, A Year with Frog and Toad  is a whimsical musical that tells the story of two best friends: the cheerful Frog, and curmudgeonly Toad. The musical follows Frog and Toad through four colorful seasons, from hibernation to hibernation. Frog and Toad, along with their playful, quirky friends Snail, Turtle, the Birds, and more, enact many adventures, from rushing down a hill in a runaway sled in the winter, to taking a picnic and a quiet moment in the summer. Children and adults alike with relish in the joyful vignettes of A Year With Frog and Toad, which feature catchy tunes, funny dialogue, and bright, memorable characters.

Auditions are open to teens and adults, ages 12 and up.

All must have strong musical theater voices.
