A YEAR WITH FROG AND TOAD

A new musical takes flight. Based on a Scottish legend by George MacDonald, this play tells the story of a teenager who has no gravity of any kind – in addition to having no feelings for others she floats in the air, unable to ever touch the ground. Filled with wonderful characters and a beguiling score, this enchanting, clever and wickedly funny new musical will delight kids and parents alike.
