ROBERT REALE   WILLIE REALE
Based on the books by ARNOLD LOBEL
Based on Arnold Lobel’s well-loved books, and a Broadway hit with three Tony Award nominations, this whimsical musical follows two great friends — the cheerful Frog and the rather grumpy Toad — and their forest friends through four fun-filled seasons. A Year with Frog and Toad tells the story of a friendship that endures, and celebrates the differences that make everyone unique and special.

A Musical Comedy
Book by Michael Stewart    Music by Charles Strouse
Lyrics by Lee Adams
Put on a Happy Face! It’s the 1960s, Army-bound rock star Conrad Birdie is the talk of the town, and All-American girl Kim MacAfee is chosen for a very public farewell kiss before his departure. Kids, parents, and show biz people hilariously collide as Sweet Apple, Ohio prepares for the big event. With two Broadway runs and a hit motion picture, this classic musical is a fun time for the whole family.
