Summary

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.

Jessica Georges (Snail) – Jess always looks forward to getting her yearly dose of youth serum from performing children’s theater here at Cape Rep every summer.  Playing characters like pigs, chickens, and pirates, have given her the energy she needs to keep up with her loving children Cora and Kai. Thanks Cape Rep for keeping me young and silly!

Marie Becklo (Mouse) – Marie is so excited to be all sorts of animals in A Year with Frog and Toad after appearing in last summer’s Elephant and Piggie. Her favorite season is summer–it elevates the mood!

Thomas Leidenfrost (Turtle) – Tom is finally playing the role he was born to play; a kooky, old turtle among other animals. Tom would like to dedicate his performance to anyone who likes bananas. If you hear an accordion this summer it’s probably Tom.
