Book and Lyrics by Willie Reale

Based on the books by Arnold Lobel
Arnold Lobel’s treasured characters hop from the page to the stage in a story of friendship and adventure. The musical responsible for bringing children’s theatre to Broadway A Year With Frog And Toad was nominated for three Tony Awards – including Best Musical. Featuring a jazzy, upbeat, and hummable score by Robert and Willie Reale, this whimsical musical follows two best friends – the cheerful, popular Frog and the rather grumpy Toad – through four fun-filled seasons.
Frog and Toad plant gardens, swim, rake leaves, go sledding, and learn life lessons all year long, as 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 a story of true friendship that endures – weathering all seasons.
Musical, Rated G

Get out your leather jackets and pull on your bobby socks as the world’s #1 musical returns. Peacock Players, New Hampshire’s premiere award wining youth theatre, reintroduces the unforgettable music and timeless story of Rydell High’s senior class of 1959. Grease is the iconic rock ‘n’ roll musical celebration of teen angst, fast cars, and first loves – all set in the fabulous fifties.
The original High School musical, Grease will electrify audiences with the irresistible score by Casey & Jacobs, featuring songs like “Summer Nights,” “Greased Lightnin’”, and “We Go Together”; as well as the iconic film songs written by John Farrar, “Hopelessly Devoted to You” and ”You’re the One That I Want.”
From Broadway to film, and across generations, Grease is the word, and one of the most beloved musicals of all time. So throw your mittens around your kittens and hand-jive the night away with the show that’ll make you stand up and shout, “A-wop-bop-a-loo-bop. A-wop-bam-boom!”
Musical, Rated PG-13
