2010–2011 Season of the Arts

Premier Series

A Year with Frog and Toad
October 8-10, 2010
A Year with Frog and Toad follows a worrywart toad and perky frog through a song-filled year of ups and downs as they awaken from hibernation. Every season brings new adventures, and the comedic pair does everything from planting a garden, to swimming in a pond, to sledding down steep hills--all while singing, laughing, and learning the true meaning of friendship along the way. This Tony Award-nominated hit, written by brothers Robert and Willie Reale, is based on the childrens’ stories Frog and Toad, written and illustrated by Arnold Lobel.
