The Grand Opera House presents a Musical Stage Adaptation of a Treasured Book Series

The Grand Opera House presents A Year with Frog and Toad. Arnold Lobel’s treasured characters hop from page to stage in a story of friendship and adventure. Performances begin September 29th, running Fridays, and Saturdays at 7:30pm and Sundays at 2:00pm through October 8th.

A hit on Broadway, A Year with Frog and Toad was nominated for three Tony Awards – including Best Musical. Based on Arnold Lobel’s well-loved books, and featuring a hummable score by Robert and Willie Reale, this whimsical show follows two great friends – the cheerful, popular Frog (Zac Winkler) and the rather grumpy Toad (Asher Soppe) – through four fun-filled seasons.


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 the differences that make them unique and special. Part vaudeville, part make believe… all charm, A Year with Frog and Toad tells the story of a friendship that endures throughout the seasons.


A Year with Frog and Toad is directed by Cindy Caraway and music direction by Brion Bowman. The cast features 6 local performers playing various roles throughout the musical.
