The musical follows Frog and Toad through four colorful seasons, from hibernation to hibernation. Frog and Toad, along with their playful, quirky friends Snail, Turtle, the Birds, and more, enact many adventures, from rushing down a hill in a runaway sled in the winter, to taking a picnic and a quiet moment in the summer. Children and adults alike with relish in the joyful vignettes of A Year With Frog and Toad, which feature catchy tunes, funny dialogue, and bright, memorable characters

Cast: The director will be looking to cast wo women (Soprano and Mezzo Soprano) and three men (2 Baritones and 1 Bari-tenor). Number of performers could expand, as three of the actors play many roles.
Rehearsals: Please note that rehearsals for this show will start the second week of August. There may be a mid-week morning matinee for school children during the run.
Preparation: Please be prepared to sing a song (bring sheet music/accompanist provided) and do a monologue. Comedy/fantasy/children's theatre is the show's genre, so plan accordingly. If you have no comedic monologues or lighthearted up-tempo songs, please bring something you feel comfortable doing. The most important thing the director wants to see is the “you-ness” of you. By presenting work in which you feel most secure you'll more likely succeed in sharing a bit of who you are.
Director will lead a warm up at 12:30, if anyone wishes. Please request it ahead of time by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The director will not arrive for this if no advanced requests are made.
Conflicts: All conflicts must be listed on the audition form the day of the auditions.
Questions: Please call the Department of Theatre office at 260-481-6551.
