Henry Players: A Year with Frog and Toad


June 26 – 29, 2014

A Year With Frog and Toad - This whimsical show follows two great friends -- the cheerful,

 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, all charm, A YEAR WITH FROG AND TOAD
 tells the story of a friendship that endures, weathering all seasons.
