This Robert and Willie Reale musical brings Arnold Lobel's children's book characters to life. The story follows two friends, the cheerful and popular Frog and the grumpy Toad, through the four seasons. Waking from hibernation in the spring, they proceed to plant gardens, swim, rake leaves and go sledding, learning important life lessons along the way.
Featured are Trey Gerrald as Frog and Kirk Johnson as Toad. Both are theater majors at Coastal. Monica Bell, assistant professor of theatre at Coastal, makes her CCU directorial debut with this production.
