San Diego Junior Theatre to Present A YEAR WITH FROG AND TOAD

San Diego Junior Theatre will present A Year with Frog and Toad, the first show of its 74th Season.

A Year with Frog and Toad is the touching story of two unlikely friends, the cheerful Frog, and curmudgeonly Toad. Join them as they take a musical journey through four colorful seasons along with their friends Snail, Turtle, and the Birds, enacting many adventures, from rushing down a hill on a runaway sled in the winter to taking a picnic and a quiet moment in the summer. Along the way, Frog and Toad discover that the differences that make them unique are also what makes their friendship so special.

Based on the beloved books by Arnold Lobel, Frog and Toad has an upbeat score by Robert Reale and clever lyrics by Willie Reale. With direction by Junior Theatre Artistic Director Desha Crownover, music direction by New York transplant Kira Blaskovich and choreography by JT alum Emily Shackelford, this 25-member cast and affecting story will delight kids of all ages.

"In a way, there's no better choice than Frog and Toad to hold our hands as we face an ever-changing world full of seemingly insurmountable differences." Julia Dixon Evans, KPBS

A Year with Frog and Toad will run from October 29 to November 14, with an ASL-interpreted performance on Saturday, November 13 at 2pm.

Junior Theatre also runs a popular student matinee program with two weekday morning shows for Frog and Toad: November 3 and 9. Discounted tickets are available to San Diego area school groups as a way to introduce children to theatre and the importance of the arts. For more information on booking a student matinee, school administrators and teachers can email anthony@juniortheatre.com or call 619-239-8355.
