Capitol Theatre and Today’s Northumberland Offering You A Chance to See “A Year with Frog and Toad”

In entertainment, Local

The Capitol Theatre and Today’s Northumberland are giving away a set of four tickets to see the Capitol Theatre’s first major summer stage production of the year – A Year with Frog and Toad based on the classic books by Arnold Lobe adapted by Robert and Willie Reale.

Simply e-mail editor@todaysnorthumberland.ca and tell us why you’d like to attend – it’s that simple. (Contest ends April 30)

Directed by Fiona Sauder, co-founder of Canada’s celebrated Bad Hats theatre company, the cast features Joel Cumber as Frog, Haneul Yi as Toad, and ensemble members Taylor Lovelace, Ben Page and Yunike Soedarmasto.

Perfect for all ages, this whimsical show chronicles the story of two friends—the very chipper Frog and the rather grumpy Toad—through four fun-filled seasons. Alongside the other animals
of the forest, they plant gardens, go swimming, rake leaves, go sledding, and learn life lessons along the way.

“This is a rare piece that appeals to both kids and adults,” shares Sauder. “There’s a beautiful sense of timeless, child-like wonder and invention in the script, and the music is gorgeous. It’s a
real burst of joy – the kind of story that makes you want to join in, at any age.”

“The Capitol is for everyone, and that includes our mainstage productions,” adds Artistic Director Rob Kempson. “To have an experienced actor and director of Fiona’s calibre open our
mainstage season is a delight, and we can’t wait to share A Year with Frog and Toad with our visitors next month.”

A Year with Frog and Toad runs from May 17 to June 2 at the Capitol Theatre Port Hope.

Opening night is May 18 at 7:30 p.m. New this year, the Capitol is offering special weekday matinees that are perfect for school groups, and for added accessibility the May 17 preview
performance tickets start at only $5. Visit capitoltheatre.com for tickets and details.
