    Hackettstown — The Centenary Stage Company presents “A Year With Frog and Toad” on Oct. 15 at 11 a.m. in the Edith Kutz Theater located in the Lackland Center on the Campus of Centenary College. Robert and Willie Reale’s musical “A Year With Frog And Toad” remains true to the spirit of the original stories create by Arnold Lobel, as it follows two friends, the cheerful and popular Frog and the rather grumpy Toad through four seasons. Waking from hibernation in the spring, they proceed to plant gardens, swim, rake leaves and go sledding, learning life lessons along the way, including a most important one about friendship and rejoicing in the attributes that make each of us different and special. Tickets are $10 dollars for adults and $8 for children. “Frog and Toad” is part of the new Young Audience Series third Saturday Festival presented by the Centenary Stage Company. Every third Saturday of the month will feature a different production suitable for ages pre- k to adult. Young Audience Series was developed in collaboration with The Centenary College Theater Department to produce a theater outreach program for neighboring communities and schools. The Young Audience Series educates and entertains young audiences with performances and workshops, based on NJ core curriculum standards. “A Year With Frog and Toad” is also available for tour, bringing the experience of theater right to schools. Other productions available for tour include “A Thousand Cranes,” (based on the book Sadako and “A Thousand Cranes”), “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie” and “If you Give a Pig a Pancake.” For more information on the Young Audience Series Third Saturday Series contact the Centenary Stage Company Box office at 908-979-0900 or Lea Antolini-Lid, Assistant Professor of Dance/Theater Educational Director Centenary Stage Company Centenary College 908-852-1400 x242.
