MILWAUKEE — This year’s annual Theatre for Young Audiences play is the heart-warming Tony-nominated musical that adoringly captures the spirit of Arnold Lobel’s whimsical stories. A Year with Frog and Toad follows two great friends, the cheerful and popular Frog and the 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. The jazzy and upbeat score is sure to please children and parents alike. The performance will run:
• Saturday, Jan. 15, 2:30 p.m.
• Saturday, Jan. 22 and Sunday, Jan. 23, 2:30 p.m.
Ticket prices for the general public are $11 for all shows. Discounts are offered to senior citizens, Marquette students, employees and alumni. Tickets can be purchased by contacting the box office at (414) 288-7504 or online.
