Music by Robert Reale
Lyrics and book by Willie Reale
Original Direction by David Petrarca
Directed by Peter Rothstein
Assistant Directed by Sylvie Mae Baldwin
Waking from hibernation in the spring, the perky Frog and the worrywart Toad plant gardens, swim, rake leaves, go sledding, and learn life lessons through four, fun-filled seasons. The amphibian odd couple celebrate and rejoice in their differences that make them the best-est of friends while joined by a colorful cast of birds, mice, turtles, and that slo-o-ow snail with the mail. Nominated for three Tony Awards® including Best Musical, this unforgettable and tuneful musical is back on our stage after almost a decade! Don’t miss this exuberant story based on the treasured books by Arnold Lobel in a musical that soars like a kite and blossoms like spring.
This production was commissioned and created by Children’s Theatre Company in Minneapolis, MN.
