Frog: Caring and loyal. Always looking out for his friends. The calmer, more zen of both he and Toad. Simultaneously adventurous and assured.
Toad: A hard worker, but impatient for results. Self-conscious. Stubborn. A good friend to Frog.
Turtle- Turtle is a “rabble-rouser” and loves to get the whole gang to tease Toad in fun!
Mouse- Mouse is always able to ask all the right questions like a talk-show host.
Lizard- Lizard is definitely the most confused of the Turtle, Mouse, Lizard trio, but eventually joins in the fun.
Snail- The Snails are simply unflappable. They will deliver without fail “in the rain or sleet or snow.
Birds- The Birds communicate the passage of time (seasons) and set the stage for the story to follow.
Ensemble full of forest creatures!
Nominated for Three Tony Awards, including Best 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 the differences that make them unique and special. Part vaudeville, part make believe… all charm, A Year with Frog and Toad tells the story of a friendship that endures throughout the seasons.
