Show Synopsis:
Adapted from the three-time Tony nominated Broadway hit, comes “A Year with Frog and Toad KIDS.” Based on Arnold Lobel’s well-loved books, this whimsical show follows two great friends: the cheerful, popular, Frog and the rather grumpy, Toad, through four fun-filled seasons. Waking from hibernation, Frog and Toad plant gardens, swim, rake leaves, go sledding and learn life lessons along the way. Throughout the year, these two best friends celebrate and rejoice in the differences that make them unique and special.

Available Roles:
*We are looking for actors, ages 12 and up. GENDERS are subject to change depending on who auditions.

PRINCIPAL:

Frog (Male): Frog is friendly, confident, positive and caring.

Toad (Male): Toad is serious, irritable, self-conscious, yet oddly charismatic.

Turtle (Female): Turtle is a “rabble-rouser” and loves to get the whole gang to tease Toad in fun!

Mouse (Female): Mouse is always able to ask all the right questions like a talk-show host. Mouse, like Turtle, is full of fun.

Lizard (Female): Lizard is the most confused of the Turtle, Mouse and Lizard trio, but she eventually joins in the fun.

ENSEMBLE

Snails: (3 Actors, Male and/or Female) Snails are simply unflappable. They will deliver without fail “in the rain or sleet or snow.”

Moles: (4 Actors, Male) The Moles live underground and work as a team.
