Big Noise Theatre
Big Noise Theatre: Especially For Kids is excited to announce auditions for A YEAR WITH FROG AND TOAD. A hit on Broadway, A YEAR WITH FROG AND TOAD was nominated for three Tony Awards – including Best Musical. Based on Arnold Lobel's well-loved books, this whimsical show follows two great friends – the cheerful, popular Frog and the rather grumpy Toad – through four fun-filled seasons.
