A Year with Frog and Toad
Dallas Children’s Theater
Friday, Saturday & Sunday
The three-time TONY-nominated Broadway hit with its jazzy score hops to DCT just in time for spring.

This adorably charming story captivates audiences of all ages – even those who think they’re too old for make-believe. Join Frog and Toad as they weather the seasons and celebrate the differences that make them special. You and your best friends will be tapping your webbed toes all the way home! Ages 4+
