Derby Dinner Playhouse opened the musical A YEAR WITH FROG AND TOAD on February 22, 2020 as part of their Children’s Musical Theatre Series.  Public performances run February 22, 29, March 7, 14, 16, 21, & 28, 2020.  For ticket information please call 812-288-8281 or visit www.derbydinner.com. 

Waking from hibernation in the Spring, Frog and Toad plant gardens, swim, rake leaves, go sledding, and learn life lessons along the way. The two best friends celebrate and rejoice in their differences that make them unique and special. Part vaudeville, part make-believe, and all charm, A YEAR WITH FROG AND TOAD tells the story of a friendship that endures, weathering all seasons. Featuring a jazzy, upbeat score, this enchanting musical is perfect for the whole family.


We saw the opening day production this past weekend and loved it!  Cary Wiger as Frog and Bill Hanna as Toad have played these roles before and are so familiar with them that I love the way they bring this story to life!  Both of my boys were interested for the entire hour long show and loved following along with the different seasons!  There was comedy and lessons of true friendship throughout!
