A YEAR WITH FROG AND TOADFrog and Toad

March 10th – 19th, 2017

Book and Lyrics by Willie Reale
Music by Robert Reale
Based on the books by Arnold Lobel

DIRECTED BY ANDREA UNDERHILL
MUSICAL DIRECTION BY TBA
CHOREOGRAPHY BY TBA

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.

HEATHERS THE MUSICALheathersposter-1

August 2017

Book, Music & Lyrics by Laurence O’Keefe and Kevin Murphy
Based on the 1989 cult film Heathers

Based on the cult classic 1989 film, Westerberg High is ruled by a shoulder-padded, scrunchie-wearing junta: Heather, Heather and Heather, the hottest and cruelest girls in all of Ohio. But misfit Veronica Sawyer rejects their evil regime for a new boyfriend, the dark and sexy stranger J.D. – who plans to put the Heathers in their place – six feet under.

Heathers The Musical is the darkly delicious story of Veronica Sawyer, a brainy, beautiful teenage misfit who hustles her way into the most powerful and ruthless clique at Westerberg High – the Heathers. But before she can get comfortable atop the high school food chain, Veronica falls in love with the dangerously sexy new kid J.D. When Heather Chandler, the Almighty, kicks her out of the group, Veronica decides to bite the bullet and kiss Heather’s aerobicized ass… but J.D. has another plan for that bullet.

Brought to you by the award-winning creative team of Kevin Murphy (Reefer Madness, Desperate Housewives), Laurence O’Keefe (Bat Boy, Legally Blonde) and Andy Fickman (Reefer Madness, She’s the Man). Heathers The Musical is a hilarious, heartfelt and homicidal new show based on the greatest teen comedy of all time. With its moving love story, laugh-out-loud comedy and unflinching look at the joys and anguish of high school, Heathers the Musical is a new musical anthem for the damaged and disenfranchised.

Musical, Rated R
Please note that Heathers The Musical contains mature language and content, sexual themes, and violence.
