Auditions: Monday and Tuesday, January 8 and 9
Callbacks: Thursday, January 11

Ages 8 through adult

This musical play is based on books by Arnold Lobel, with music by Robert Reale, book and lyrics by Willie Reale. It tells the story of two best friends, the cheerful Frog and the grumpy Toad, as they hop, sing, and dance their way through a year of adventure. As the seasons change, these storybook characters learn lessons about life and the importance of friendship.

Cody Goeppner is the show director; Cyndil Davis is the producer. David Riddle is the choral director, and Emma Tyree is the choreographer. They hope to cast between 15 and 40 actors.

Doors of The Green Room at the Princess will open both evenings at 5 PM for sign-ins; the production team will conduct mandatory informational meetings for parents at 5:30. Auditions will begin at 6 PM with vocal and dance components. Auditionees need to attend only one night of auditions; parents need to attend only one informational meeting. Each auditionee should come prepared with 16 bars, or 1 minute, of a solo of their choice to showcase their vocal abilities, and must provide their own backtrack. Auditionees will learn and demonstrate a dance combination taught onsite. Readings from the script will be done at callbacks.
