Literature’s favorite amphibians jump from the page to the stage in a return engagement of Cardinal’s most beloved production ever! Based on Arnold Lobel’s well-loved books, A Year with Frog and Toad is a whimsical show that follows two great friends – the cheerful, popular Frog and the rather grumpy Toad – through four, fun-filled seasons. Celebrate the holidays with this heartwarming and adorable show, perfect for the whole family. “Universally appealing and magically realized” – The Herald-Times
