Overshadowed Theatrical Productions is thrilled to bring Caldecott and Newberry Award winner Arnold Lobel's classic children's book series "Frog and Toad" to the stage in "A Year With Frog and Toad."

The musical written by brothers Robert and Willie Reale brings the magic of the storybooks to life with worrywart Toad (played by Wesley Brown) and perky Frog (Barrett Kaufman) as they journey from hibernation to hibernation with a score of assorted colorful hoping, flying, and crawling friends (Andrew Dille, Leah Johansen, Jason Eisentraut, and Karen Neidlinger).

 

The music is fun-filled, catchy, and the book is creative, hopeful, and outright hilarious.

"A Year with Frog and Toad" is magic for the entire family and a great way to warm up during this cold season.

Although "Frog and Toad" has a simple premise, the two friends go through activities throughout the year like making cookies, planting a garden, sledding, down a hill, and raking leaves, the book is built with clever humor, relatable characters, and the brilliant score has music that will literally have you dancing in your seat.

Audiences of all ages will thoroughly enjoy the magic of the woods.

Performances will be 7:30 p.m. Fridays and 2 p.m. Saturdays, Jan. 21 through Feb. 5, at 900 Foster Ave., Medinah. They also will be performing additional Saturday shows at 10 a.m. Jan. 29 and 7 p.m. Feb. 5.

Tickets prices range from $16-$22. To purchase tickets, visit www.overshadowed.org.
