The Lakewood Playhouse is proud to present its third annual "special" joint presentation with its very own Lakewood Institute of Theatre - "A YEAR with FROG & TOAD: The Musical!" for nine shows only! This wonderful, heartwarming and whimsical musical is based on the beloved children''s books by Arnold Lobel -- Book & Lyrics by Willie Reale / Music by Robert Reale. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

Directed by the new education director for the Lakewood Institute of Theatre (Jeremy Thompson), with musical direction by Diane Bozzo and Choreography by Mauro Bozzo, this joyful, holiday musical promises to be wonderful experience for the whole family.

The show has a huge cast of over 20 actors and actresses...both young and old...from old favorites to new. Our cast includes performances by returning actors, and directors, such as RACHAEL FITZGERALD (Toad) [Director of Twelfth Night], COLEMAN HAGERMAN (Frog) [Something Wicked This Way Comes, Oliver!, Monty Python's Spamalot and Little Women], KAREN CHRISTENSEN (Bird 1), [Sweeney Todd], ERIN DEES (Bird 2), ABBY WEBSTER (Bird 3), CHARLIE STEVENS (Snail) [Oliver!], NINA FOWLER (Mouse), KATELYN HOFFMAN (Turtle) [Play It Again Sam, The Farnsworth Invention and Pride & Prejudice], GABI MARLER (Lizard), LYDIA HELT (Squirrel / Mole 1), EVELYN HELT (Squirrel / Mole 2), PENELOPE VENTURINI (Young Frog), JAMES VENTURINI (Father Frog), [Director of The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940 Our The Annual LIVE RADIO Show], MARCY VENTURINI (Mother Frog) and JULIE COLE (The Littles Mom)

Just the story for the entire family during the holiday season! Arnold Lobel's well-loved characters hop from the page to the stage in Robert and Willie Reale''s Tony-nominated musical "A Year with Frog and Toad." This whimsical show follows two great friends -- the cheerful, popular Frog and the rather grumpy Toad--through four, fun-filled seasons.

The Lakewood Playhouse was founded in 1938 and has established itself with theatre that is both intimate and epic. The theatre is located within the Lakewood Towne Center, 5729 Lakewood Towne Center Blvd., Lakewood, Washington 98499.
