Arnold Lobel's well-loved characters hop from the page to the stage in A YEAR WITH FROG AND TOAD TYA, the Theatre of Young Audiences version of Robert and Willie Reale's Tony-nominated musical. This whimsical show follows two great friends -- the cheerful, popular Frog and the rather grumpy Toad -- through four, fun-filled seasons.
Waking from hibernation in the Spring, Frog and Toad plant gardens, swim, rake leaves, go sledding, and learn life lessons along the way. The two best friends celebrate and rejoice in their differences that make them unique and special. Part vaudeville, part make believe, all charm, A YEAR WITH FROG AND TOAD TYA tells the story of a friendship that endures, weathering all seasons.
The jazzy, upbeat score of A YEAR WITH FROG AND TOAD TYA bubbles with melody and wit, making it an inventive, exuberant, and enchanting musical for the whole family. It is a perfect show to be performed by an ensemble group of actors and can be produced with either simple or extravagant staging and sets.
