About

A Year With Frog and Toad –

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.

Rehearsals – Rehearsals will be two to three days a week, with an emphasis on daytime rehearsals based on collective ensemble availability. Wednesday morning/afternoon is the leading rehearsal time locked in so far.

For your audition please prepare- A cut of music (16-32 bars) that suits young audiences, and a monologue that shows willingness to make big character choices (60 – 90 seconds).

From the director –  “Choose material that’s appropriate to the show – knowing that it’s for young audiences. Whether that’s MT rep that matches the style of the show, or other pop/children’s music that matches the style- it would be nice to see that they’re familiar with the show and performing for kids. So a cut of music (16-32 bars) that suits young audiences, and then a monologue that shows willingness to make big character choices.”

Character Breakdown – 

Frog. Confident, good-natured, the natural leader of the friendship; able to accept life as it comes.

Toad. Anxious, neurotic, and a tad awkward, but with a very big heart; manages to turn small incidents into ordeals by caring just a little too much.

Snail. A timid wallflower who undergoes a surprising transformation when entrusted with a task they might not be best suited for.

Birds (3). An Andrews Sisters-style trio with distinct personalities that both narrate and participate in the action.

Turtle. Bossy, sarcastic, and a bit of an instigator; very jazzy. Plays other characters through the show.

Mouse. Plucky, inquisitive; dancing a plus; plays other characters through the show.

Lizard. Laid back, amiable; plays other characters through the show.

 

We are currently adhering to the following procedures:

We Are Operating As A Fully Vaccinated Cast – Those auditioning will be asked to present your vaccination card at the time of entry and sign-in.

As we are a place of community gathering and artistic excellence, we will be following the AEA guidelines for our productions, and have chosen to produce our shows as a fully vaccinated adult company. By fully vaccinated, we mean that adults will be two weeks post second vaccination (or Johnson & Johnson vaccine) by the start of rehearsals. As a result, we will only be offering roles to adults who are vaccinated or who plan / are willing to be vaccinated before the start of rehearsals. Medical exemption information is included below.

For audition purposes –

1) If you have not been fully vaccinated at the time of the auditions – but are willing / intend to be vaccinated if cast – you can submit your callback sides via video submission 1b) If you are unvaccinated due to health reasons, you can submit you’re audition sides via video submission along with medical certification of the exemption. If cast under the exemption, the expectation will be to test weekly and provide a negative test at the start of the rehearsal week each week.

2) If you are fully vaccinated by the time of the audition date, please bring your vaccination card (or photo of card) with you and present it at the time of check-in.

2b)  If you are vaccinated but out-of-town and cannot make this auditions, please send a video of your sides along with proof of vaccination.

Most importantly, if you are sick or are feeling ill, please do not attend the auditions.  Let us know, take care of yourself, and send a video.

In case of exposure, all cast members will be expected to follow exposure protocol. While our policies are updating with the state of the world, our current policy is to encourage but not require audiences to be masked during the performance.
