A Year with Frog and Toad
DECEMBER 16, 2015 – JANUARY 3, 2016 at the Liberty Theatre
By Robert and Willie Reale
Direction by John Glenn
20th Season Pick:
As part of its 20th Season Company of Fools is delighted to bring the Valley’s two favorite amphibians back home for the holidays – FROG & TOAD! Last performed in 2010 our Valley has sent a constant plea to return this favorite for a whole new generation of children.
The play remains true to the spirit of the original stories as it follows two great friends – the cheerful and popular Frog and the rather naive Toad – through four, fun-filled seasons. Waking from hibernation in the spring, they proceed to plant gardens, swim, rake leaves and go sledding, learning life lessons along the way, including a most important one about friendship and rejoicing in the attributes that make each of us different and special.
“Anyone who cherishes musical theater and can beg or borrow a child from 4 up might be well advised to make a beeline in search of tickets for A Year With Frog And Toad.” – New York Times
The running time for A Year with Frog and Toad is 95 minutes, including 1 intermission.
Generously sponsored by Marcia & Don Liebich; student matinees are generously sponsored by Hailey Rotary, Kiwanis Club of Hailey, Papoose Club and US BankCorp Foundation.
