A Year with Frog and Toad

January 7-29, 2023
Monroe Stage
written by Robert Reale
music and lyrics by Willie Reale
“a world where imagination is theater and theater is imagination”

Based on characters from Arnold Lobel’s series of childrens’ books, A Year with Frog and Toad is song and dance at its best. Though it is geared to be immediately digestible by younger children, it’s no less enjoyable for adults, with enough cleverness in the words and music to win over all but the most difficult souls.

There’s a series of episodes detailing the various activities and adventures of tried and true friends Frog and Toad – baking cookies, telling scary stories, planting a garden, or celebrating Christmas together. It’s funny and charming for audiences of all ages. Frog’s stirring ode to life and friendship called “Alone” communicates some fairly mature thoughts, while Snail’s “I’m Coming Out of My Shell” is a raucously comic specialty aimed almost squarely at adults. It’s a boisterously wacky portrayal that will make the kids laugh, and the adults laugh harder.

An Eye-opening Story you Won’t Soon Forget!

It’s 1930. Berlin. For some, it’s Europe’s hot spot for the excitement and freedom of the ‘anything goes’ lifestyle.

For others, recovering from the devastating effects of the War, it’s long food lines and endless search for work. Hitler offers a solution!

Enter Clifford Bradshaw, a struggling, sexually curious American novelist looking for inspiration for his next book. On his first night there Cliff wanders into the wildly exotic, naughty Kit Kat Klub, overseen by a strange, gender-bending ‘Emcee’ where he meets Sally Bowles, a vivacious, seductive dancer and chanteuse, and an utterly lost soul.

Cliff and Sally’s relationship blossoms, unexpectedly, into a dream-like romance.

As time passes, however, the situation in Berlin starts to change. What was exciting and vital is now ominous and violent. The Nazis blame the Jews and gays for everyone’s misery. Their ranks swell with new recruits.

Ernst, Cliff’s first German friend, joins the Nazi Party.

Herr Schultz, Cliff’s Jewish fellow boarder at Fraulein Schneider’s guest house (and her fiancée), is the target of an anti-Semitic hate crime.

When Sally announces she’s pregnant, Cliff decides they must leave for America, at once, before things get any worse. Sally’s nonchalant, unsure she’ll ever be able to trade the exciting cabaret lifestyle for motherhood.

How bad can it get? Really?
