    A Year With Frog and Toad is a musical that follows the two amphibious friends - one a worrysome, sometimes careful Toad, and one upbeat Frog - in a season of adventures the kids will enjoy. The two friends come out of hibernation in the spring, swim in the summer, rake leaves (while squirrels make a mess of things) in fall, and sledding in the Winter.  A fun time to be had by children and children at heart.

    Matt Wallace directed A Year With Frog and Toad, which features Cary Wiger as Frog and Bill Hanna as Toad.  Other cast members include Chris Bryant, Janet Essenpreis, Carly Stotts, and Kiersten Vorheis.  

    The musical is based on the children's stories Frog and Toad, which Arnold Lobel created.  

    During Frog and Toad's run, Derby Dinner will is also presenting Little Shop of Horrors.  That show will continue until March 30.  The next childrens theatre show will be Awesome Allie: First Kid Astronaut.  That production will begin in May.
