A Year with Frog and Toad
by Zach Theatre

Feb. 20 - May. 10

Based on Arnold Lobel’s beloved book, the Tony-nominated musical A Year with Frog and Toad celebrates enduring friendship and life’s lesson as Frog and Toad navigate the changing seasons together, engaging audiences with a charming blend of vaudeville, make-believe, and an enchanting jazzy score that delights the whole family.

A Year with Frog and Todd stars Jillian Sainz as Frog and Victoria Brown as Toad with Jon Paul Lopez as Ensemble/Snail, Mykkaela Garcia as Ensemble/Turtle, Alexandra Guerrero as Ensemble/Mouse, Aria Lee as Ensemble/Mouse, and Maddie Brimmer as Understudy/Snail/Turtle. 



“Delving into the charming world of A Year with Frog and Toad has been a treat. At its core, it’s a heartwarming musical that rekindles the joys of friendship and explores the richness of those relationships,” said Director Sara Burke. “I’m sure most of us remember Arnold Lobel's beloved stories that celebrate the simple, profound moments that make life beautiful, and I think friends of all ages will enjoy seeing Frog & Toad's adventures and ‘misadventures’ brought to life at ZACH. In a world chasing grandeur, Frog and Toad remind us that joy often lies in life's simplest moments – a swim, a cookie, a shared story.”

A Year with Frog and Toad is directed by Sara Burke with choreography by Karly Powell and musical direction by Allen Robertson. Additional production team includes John Aaron Bell as scenic designer, Christina Montgomery as costume designer, Rachel Atkinson as lighting designer, Timothy Riggs as sound designer and Ruben Cruz as stage manager.
