MILTON, Ga. – Milton Theatre Company will produce the children’s musical, “A Year with Frog and Toad” in four performances beginning Thursday, Jan. 16 and concluding on Saturday, Jan. 18.
This whimsical musical follows two great friends — the cheerful, popular Frog and the rather grumpy Toad — through four, fun-filled seasons.
Waking from hibernation in the spring, Frog and Toad plant gardens, swim, rake leaves, go sledding and learn life lessons along the way. The two best friends celebrate and rejoice in their differences that make them unique and special. Part vaudeville, part make-believe and all charm, “A Year with Frog and Toad” tells the story of a friendship that endures, weathering all seasons.
The show is co-directed by Renee Denney and Larry Smith with Sim Jones as technical director. Milton produces multiple shows every year, including two one-acts in the fall, a spring musical and the high flying Cirque show in April. This is the first time in a number of years that they are doing a children’s musical in between. Both directors expressed how excited they were to produce a show that is fun for children and adults. While the show is typically done with a very small cast, the directors wanted to use every single student in the advanced drama class, which will likely result in some creative use of cast members.
Performances will be at 7 p.m. Jan. 16 and Jan. 17, followed by a 2 p.m. matinee performance and 7 p.m. show on Jan. 18 at the Milton theater at Milton High School, 3025 Birmingham Hwy.
