  A Year with Frog and Toad at The Station

A Year with Frog and Toad

The Station
100 S. Racine Ave Chicago

Lobel's beloved amphibians hop from the page to the stage in this heartwarming musical that follows two best friends - the cheerful, popular Frog and the rather grumpy Toad - through four fun-filled seasons. Waking from hibernation in the spring, Frog and Toad go swimming, rake leaves, go sledding and learn life lessons, celebrating their differences that make them unique and special. Full of joy and energy, top musical numbers include "Cookies," "Getta Loada Toad," "I'm Coming Out of My Shell" and "Merry Almost Christmas." Part vaudeville, part make believe, all charm, A Year With Frog and Toad tells the story of a friendship that endures, weathering all seasons.

Chicago Tribune - Recommended

"...This show, staged very close to an audience that gets kid-friendly perches, is very well sung, and played, which has not always been the case with this particular title. The music director, Andrea Velis Simon, makes sure of all that."

Chicago Reader - Highly Recommended

"...What a delight to spend four seasons with the inseparable Frog and Toad and their riverside pals. As banjo, barrelhouse keyboard, light taps on the cajón, and fingerstyle guitar all weave together softly in the background (the music is by Robert Reale, book and lyrics by Willie Reale), as cookies bake in the oven and tea brews on the hob, as a snail (Shawn Pfautsch) delivers mail, the upbeat Frog (Matthew C. Yee) and his somber pal Toad (the wonderful Andy Nagraj) go skipping sweetly through daring outdoor adventures, from sledding to swimming to raking leaves, building true friendship along the way."

Chicagoland Musical Theatre - Highly Recommended

"...My mother majored in theatre and put me on the stage from the time that I could walk. I participated in many shows, then directed high school theater for 10 years. I have seen hundreds upon hundreds of performances, and Chicago Children's Theatre's remarkable production of A Year with Frog and Toad is the best children's show I have ever seen."
