Adapted from the three-time-Tony-nominated Broadway hit comes A Year with Frog and Toad KIDS. Based on Arnold Lobel’s well-loved books, the jazzy, upbeat score bubbles with melody. Part vaudeville, part make-believe, and all charm, A Year with Frog and Toad KIDS tells the story of a friendship that endures throughout the seasons.

This whimsical show follows two great friends – the cheerful, popular Frog, and the rather grumpy Toad – through four fun-filled seasons. Waking from hibernation, Frog and Toad plant gardens, swim, rake leaves, go sledding and learn life lessons along the way. Throughout the year, two best friends celebrate and rejoice in the differences that make them unique and special.

 

Your kids will have a great time playing the different animals in this play as well as the over-the-top human characters!  Students will work with Director Alison Gilbreath, who holds a BA Degree in Theatre Arts and who has trained and worked with Europe’s top theatre professionals, Connie Mockenhaupt, holds a Master of Arts Degree and is an award-winning choreographer and musical director.  They will then perform their play on the Sutter Street Theatre stage as part of our Family Series program.

Pay by May 1 – $350
After May 1 – $375

A non-refundable $50 deposit is required to hold a space in the class. 

Call (916) 353-1001 for reservations.

The most beloved tale of all time comes to life on the stage. Dorothy and her three friends trot delightfully and tunefully down that fabled road of yellow brick in The Wizard of Oz.

After a tornado whisks her away to the magical land of Oz, young Dorothy Gale teams up with a Scarecrow, a Tin Woodsman and a Cowardly Lion to find the mighty Wizard of Oz, who can send her home. Along the way, they must avoid the clutches of the Wicked Witch of the West, who is trying to steal the mysterious magic slippers that once belonged to her evil sister… but are now on Dorothy’s feet. Dorothy eventually learns just how magical friendship can be and how wonderful it can feel to go home again.
