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 their differences that make them unique and special. Part vaudeville, part make-believe, and all charm, "A Year With Frog and Toad" tells the story of a friendship that endures, weathering all seasons. Featuring a jazzy, upbeat score, this enchanting musical is perfect for the whole family.

"A Year With Frog and Toad" is based on the best-selling children’s book written by Arnold Lobel. The book and lyrics were written by Willie Reale with music by Robert Reale. Derby Dinner’s production of "A Year With Frog and Toad" is under the direction of Tina Jo Wallace. The cast will include Cary Wiger as Frog and Bill Hanna as Toad, along with Andrea Diggs, Sally Scott and Chris Bryant.

All public performances of A YEAR WITH FROG AND TOAD are on Saturdays with breakfast at 9 a.m. and lunch at noon. All performances feature a kid-friendly menu. This production is most suitable for ages 3 to 12.
