This whimsical musical follows two best friends — the eternally optimistic Frog and the rather grumpy Toad — through four, fun-filled seasons. Frog and Toad plant gardens, swim, rake leaves, go sledding, eat cookies and learn life lessons along the way. A sweet tale of friendship and what makes each of us unique and special.

Recommended for Pre-Kindergarten and up.
Children under the age of 3 (including sleeping babies) are not allowed in the theater.

Approximate run times: School Matinee - 55 minutes; Public Performance - 85 minutes

“We were able to include all of our students, including lifeskills, to this performance and they all loved it. They were clapping and giving responses that are not normal for them. We also had one of our extremely low 4th graders ask an amazing question during the Q&A - "What is the moral of the story?" The actors were great about answering all of their questions, good, silly, and bad!”

-- Don Jeter Elementary

“Our students and staff LOVED the play! The best part was listening to the kids talk about the characters of the play and the interest that many developed in live theatre. It was an experience I know our kids will never forget! ”

-- Austin Elementary
