Event Description

Music by Robert Reale. Book and Lyrics by Willie Reale. Based on Arnold Lobel's beloved books, this whimsical show follows two friends -- friendly Frog and cranky Toad -- through spring, summer, fall and winter. Nominated for three Tony Awards, including Best Musical!

Come prepared to sing one chorus and verse of a musical theatre song and to read from the script. An accompanist will be provided, but please bring sheet music with accompaniment music, not just the verse line. A short dance combination will also be taught.

Audition Dates: May 6 at 1-3 p.m. AND May 8 at 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Performance Dates: July 19-22 and July 26-29

Characters Needed: Either a cast of 5 or a cast of 8 to include Frog, Toad, Man Bird, Lady Bird 1, Lady Bird 2. This show can be done with the 3 Birds playing all the other roles OR with another trio playing Snail/Lizard/Large and Terrible Frog, Turtle/Young Frog/Squirrel, Mouse/Mom Frog/Squirrel. Characters appear more human than animal (no animal makeup or costumes).

Rehearsals will take place Monday through Friday beginning June 11. The time will either be 6:30-9 p.m. or 7-9:30 p.m. A complete rehearsal schedule will be provided on June 11 and will work around any conflicts listed on the audition form. Conflicts arising after the show is cast are nearly impossible to work around, so please list ANY and ALL conflicts.
