I like to think I am on it when it comes to children’s books and plays. Well, I had a reality check last week when I told my son about A Year with Frog and Toad would be showing at Santa Monica’s Morgan Wixson Theater. I had not heard of it so I thought he had not either. I was wrong, he has read the book and is looking forward to seeing the play.
A YEAR WITH FROG AND TOAD
A hit on Broadway, A YEAR WITH FROG AND TOAD was nominated for 3 TONY Awards – including Best Musical. Based on Arnold Lobel’s well-loved books and featuring a hummable score by Robert and Willie Reale, this whimsical show follows two great friends – the cheerful, popular 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, and learn life lessons along the way. The two best friends celebrate and rejoice in their differences that make them unique and special. Part vaudeville, part make believe, all charm, A YEAR WITH FROG AND TOAD tells the story of a friendship that endures, weathering all seasons.
