They’re back! After a long hibernation, Arnold Lobel’s well-loved characters have returned to hop from “page to stage” in Actors Theatre of Indiana’s charming holiday musical production of A Year With Frog and Toad! Holding true to the heart of the book series, this is a story of a friendship that endures four fun-filled seasons. It bubbles with beautiful melody and wit, making it an inventive, exuberant and enchanting musical for ages 4 to 104!
A show that opens like a pop-up children's book, with enough clever zip for grownups and enough adventure - and moral lessons such as diversity, acceptance and sharing - for kids.
A wholly satisfying family musical
- Josefa Beyer, NUVO
Actors Theatre of Indiana gave us a very lovely gift this year. Frog would say “thank you.” So would Toad. So Do I!
