About this show

A Year With Frog and Toad follows the adventures of two best friends, Frog and Toad, as they grow through four fun-filled seasons collected from Arnold Lobel's classic, award-winning series of children's books. The charming Frog and "worry-wart" Toad leap off Lobel's pages, along with Snail, Mouse and the rest of the animal gang for some kite-flying, sled-racing and cookie-munching fun! Each amphibian comes to life with hilarious and heart-warming songs inspired by jazzy 40's style music, as they explore the challenges, rewards and tenderness of friendship. A Year with Frog and Toad gloriously celebrates that having a very best friend is about as good as life gets. Written by brothers Robert and Willie Reale, the musical is an adaptation of Arnold Lobel's timeless children's stories and was honored with three 2003 Tony Award nominations, including Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, and Best Original Score.
