Waking from hibernation in the Spring, Frog and Toad plant gardens, swim, rake leaves, and even go sledding!  They have lots of entertaining interactions with their unique neighbors, and everyone learns life lessons along the way. Part vaudeville, part make believe, all charm, A Year With Frog and Toad KIDS tells the story of a friendship that endures, weathering all seasons.


The jungle is jumpin’ with jazz!  Join Mowgli, Baloo, King Louie and the gang as they swing their way through madcap adventures and thwart the ferocious tiger, Shere Khan.  Specially adapted from the beloved Disney film, this musical includes all your favorite tunes, like “The Bare Necessities,” and “I Wan’na Be Like You.”  With colorful characters and that toe-tapping jungle rhythm, Disney's
The Jungle Book KIDS
 is sure to be a crowd-pleaser for all ages.
