Music: Robert Reale
Lyrics: Willie Reale
Book: Willie Reale

This Tony Award-nominated Broadway musical follows the cheerful Frog and the rather grumpy Toad through four fun-filled seasons. Awaking from hibernation in the spring, the two great friends enjoy planting gardens, swimming in the pond, raking leaves and sledding down the hill. Along the way they meet new friends and learn the importance of forgiveness. Staying true to the spirit of the popular Arnold Lobel books, this delightful musical celebrates friendship and the attributes that make each of us different and special. (
