Frog and Toad at Towsley Auditorium in Ann Arbor
Wild Swan Theater presents the adventures of Frog and Toad at the Towsley Auditorium stage in Ann Arbor, Oct. 18-20, 2012
Through puppets and props, the classic adventures of two amphibious friends come to life, Oct. 18-20, 2012, in Frog and Toad at Towsley Auditorium in Ann Arbor as part of the Wild Swan Theater's 33rd season.
The play, based on the Frog and Toad storybooks by Arnold Lobel, showcases the humorous lives of Frog and Toad as they learn lessons. The stories of Frog resisting the urge to eat Toad's cookies, and Toad's unique garden-growing technique will be featured, among several others.
The show, which is about 45 minutes long, is designed to enchant the 3- to 8-year-olds with its puppets and characters, but parents are sure to enjoy the humor of the stories, too. And heads up – audience participation will be encouraged!

Since 1986, Wild Swan Theater has been interpreting shows with American Sign Language, which they will do for all four performances of Frog and Toad, the group says.
