DLT is proud to present, “A Year with Frog and Toad TYA.” This theatre for young audiences version is an upbeat, adventure story based on Arnold Lobel’s well-loved and award winning books, “Frog and Toad.”
Two free performances will be held Saturday, May 22 at 1:00 PM and 4:00 PM at The Palace Theatre in Duncan. DLT is proud to be partnering with The Palace Theatre along with local legislators, Rep. Brad Boles, Sen. Chris Kidd, Sen. Jessica Garvin, and Rep. Marcus McEntire. We say thank you for your support, as it allows us to bring live theater to students and parents, free of charge.
The Duncan Little Theatre Children’s Theatre Experience program has visited most elementary schools in Stephens County each year for the past 5 years. As you know, COVID-19 has changed most of the school year, and all of our lives. We were unable to perform in the fall of 2020, but we are excited to be able to perform “A Year With Frog and Toad” this spring.
This show will be free to students and parents who wish to come. The play is about 80 minutes long and is appropriate for all ages.
Our cast and crew consists of talented local students ranging in age from 11 to 19, many of them returning as veterans. They are led by our fearless local director, Veronica Hodgson, and talented choreographer Chris Cowan. We have highly gifted students who are eager to perform for their peers and teachers. DLT is proud to have brought live theatre to over 4,000 children in the past years, and know many students may have little to no opportunity to experience live theatre outside of this program. Part of Duncan Little Theatre’s goal is to encourage participation in the arts, to challenge and stimulate creativity, self confidence, and self esteem, and to provide quality theatrical experiences for the community. We want to continue this mission by providing quality theatre to the children of Stephens County, and we will do that the best we can, despite COVID!
Producers Teresa Blalock, Leigh McEntire, and Sonja Skinner are excited to bring the Duncan community an excellent show despite the many challenges of the past year. Donations will be welcome at the door to help support one of our most loved outreaches.
Based on Arnold Lobel’s well-loved books, and featuring a hummable score by Robert and Willie Reale, this whimsical show 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 the 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 throughout the seasons.
