Meet Frog and Toad, best friends who embark upon a year’s worth of adventures with great merriment, comedic agility, and joyful song-singing. Join them as they go swimming (and boy does Toad ♫look funny in a bathing suit♫), rake leaves until they ♫ache, ache, ache♫, and send letters via a real live ♫Snail with the Mail♫!

“We are super stoked that A Year With Frog and Toad is returning to its birthplace at the Children’s Theatre Company to celebrate its 21st year,” said Bookwriter & Lyricist Willie Reale and Composer Robert Reale. “Despite the fact that it is old enough to be welcomed in a saloon, we trust that the innocence and fun of the show will be on full display once again at CTC.”
