Ojai Youth Entertainers Studio to stage A Year With Frog and Toad beginning Feb. 20, 2015.
Ojai Youth Entertainers Studio will present the Ventura County debut of A Year with Frog and Toad, a musical based on the beloved children’s books by Arnold Lobel. Performances start February 20th and run through March 8th with shows on Fridays at 7pm, Saturdays and Sundays at 2pm & 7pm. Admission is $15 for adults and $10 for children 12 and under. Tickets are available for purchase at www.FrogAndToadMusical.BrownPaperTickets.com.
Presented for all ages, OYES’s production of A Year With Frog and Toad features a high-spirited, multi-generational cast performing to an energetic and sophisticated, jazzy score. Audiences young and old will thoroughly enjoy reliving the unforgettable, heartwarming stories of cheerful Frog and his grumpy best-friend Toad as Arnold Lobel’s treasured characters leap from page to stage in this charming tale of friendship and adventure.
“A Year With Frog and Toad will be the perfect night out for families, and we are extremely excited for our audiences to experience this production with us,” says OYES Artistic Director and Co-Founder, Krista Kim. “We have been so blessed with a wonderfully jubilant cast, which bridges generations, and they’re going to bring Lobel’s books to life in a unique way.”
The OYES performance of A Year With Frog and Toad will truly be an inventive, exuberant and musical with the lead characters played by Suzy Thatcher (Frog) and Anna Kotula (Toad). Kid-Captivating musical numbers include “Cookies,” “Getta Loada Toad,” and “Merry Almost Christmas.” Part vaudeville, part make-believe, all charm, A Year With Frog And Toad tells the story of a friendship that endures, weathering all seasons.
Nominated for 3 TONY AWARDS including Best Musical during its Broadway debut, A Year With Frog and Toad, was originally written by brothers Robert and Willie Reale, and broke new ground in 2002 by bringing professional-level children’s theatre to Broadway, making it one of the first productions to appeal to a wide range of audiences, including children as young as three-years old. Since that time, the production has enjoyed highly anticipated performances by community theatre companies around the nation.
OYES’ production is directed by Gai Jones. Performances will take place at the Ojai Youth Entertainers Studio, 316 E. Matilija Street, Ojai, CA 93023. For further information call 805-646-4300.
