The Old Gem Theater presents the kid-centric hit musical "A Year With Frog and Toad" that won a Tony Award for Minnesota's Children's Theater Company. The show plays at 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 15, 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 16, 10 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 19 (sold out), 10 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 21, and 10 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 22.

Based on Arnold Lobel's "Frog and Toad" stories, this charming and funny musical follows the exploits of woodland friends over the course of a year. The mature and kind frog and the child-like sometimes grumpy toad wake from their winter hibernation just as a chorus of birds return from their southern migration. Throughout the seasons, the friends enjoy adventures, humor and kindness, culminating in a joyous celebration of Christmas. The show is great fun for all ages.

The cast features Old Gem Youth Ensemble members: Ryan Sippl of Hammond, and Steven Hanson, Stella Mottl and Ethan Derrik of New Richmond. Adult Professional Company members include: Tom Monn of Woodbury and Jennifer Rathsack of Coon Rapids, Minn.

Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for students and seniors.
