HELENA – Carroll College Theatre is producing a charming musical for the whole family, A Year With Frog and Toad, by Willie and Robert Reale. Carroll’s 20th annual children’s play will run April 22, 23, 29, 30, and May 1, in the Carroll College Performing Arts Center in Old North.

Arnold Lobel's treasured characters hop from page to stage in a story of friendship and adventure. One of the most charming musicals ever written, this production follows Frog and Toad through all four seasons of friendship. Moments from each of Lobel’s four books are featured in this musical. Kimberly Shire, Carroll’s newest director of theatrical productions said, “I have always adored this beautiful show and can’t wait to introduce it to the Helena community.”
