Chicago Children’s Theatre is adding two weeks of performances to its current run of A Year with Frog and Toad due to popular demand.

Originally scheduled to close May 26, CCT’s musical will now run through June 9. Public performances are Saturdays and Sundays at 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m., plus a newly added 2 p.m. matinee on Saturday,
May 11 for Mother’s Day.

Children’s author and illustrator Arnold Lobel's beloved amphibians hop from the page to the stage in A Year with Frog and Toad, the ever-popular, Tony-nominated, all-out-fun family musical. Join two best friends – the cheerful, popular Frog, and their grumpy friend, Toad – through four seasons of fun and adventure, set to favorite musical numbers like “Cookies,” “Getta Loada Toad,” and “I’m Coming Out of My Shell.” Part vaudeville, part make believe, all charm, families will love this musical romp about a friendship that weathers all seasons. 

The reviews are in for this all-ages musical, proving some critics remain young-at-heart:
