The Southern Arkansas University Theater Department opens its 2022-2023 season with “A Year with Frog and Toad,” at the Harton Theater September 22-25.
The theater department will be providing a free performance of “A Year with Frog and Toad” on Family Day this year.
Based on Arnold Lobel’s children’s books, “A Year with Frog and Toad” follows two best friends – the cheerful and popular frog and the rather grumpy toad – through four fun seasons. Audiences will see familiar stories such as “Shivers”, “Cookies” and “The Letter” come to life.
The musical production, directed by Janet Rider-Babbitt, executive director of the Magnolia Arts Center, lasts approximately one hour. Performances will be at 6:30 p.m. on September 22 and 23, at 11 a.m. on Saturday September 24 and at 2 p.m. on Sunday September 25.
Michael Womack is the musical director. Amber Micheals is the choreographer.
Tickets will be available for purchase at the door or online. General admission tickets are $10, $7 for SAU faculty, staff, and seniors, and $5 for children 12 and under and SAU students.
