Well-loved characters hop from the page to the stage in A Year with Frog and Toad, the Tony Award-nominated musical following two great friends – the cheerful, popular Frog and the rather grumpy Toad – through four, fun-filled seasons. Part vaudeville, part make-believe, all charm, A Year with Frog and Toad tells the story of a friendship that endures, weathering all seasons. The jazzy upbeat score bubbles with melody and wit; an inventive, exuberant, and enchanting musical for the whole family.

A Year with Frog and Toad is based on the popular Frog and Toad book series originally written and illustrated by Arnold Lobel. Weaving several short stories from the six books together with tuneful, catchy Broadway melodies, the musical adaptation follows Frog and Toad’s friendship over the course of one year. Each of the four seasons brings an exciting, new adventure for the two – with the reluctant Toad usually being won over in the end – and shows how each of those experiences strengthen and grow their friendship.
