Cast of area children prepare to open 'Frog & Toad'

Monday, June 1, 2009

Area children ages 6-14 have been auditioning this week for Spencer Community Theatre's production of "A Year with Frog and Toad: Kids."

Rehearsals begin May 31 and run until the show opens on June 25.

Arnold Lobel's well-loved characters hop from the page to the stage in "A Year With Frog And Toad." Conceived by Mr. Lobel's daughter, Adrianne Lobel, "A Year With Frog And Toad" remains true to the spirit of the original stories as it follows two great friends, the cheerful and popular Frog and the rather grumpy Toad through four fun-filled seasons. Waking from hibernation in the spring, they proceed to plant gardens, swim, rake leaves and go sledding, learning life lessons along the way, including a most important one about friendship and rejoicing in the attributes that make each of us different and special.

Performances are: June 25, 26, and 27 at 7:30 p.m., and June 28 at 2 p.m.

To reserve tickets or for more information, call the box office at: (712)262-7336.
