We had a rainy afternoon, so we enjoyed the jazz brunch before the afternoon show at the Beehive which is next door to the theater.

Description

Boston Children’s Theatre (BCT) is proud to announce that Broadway veteran Danielle Ferland will be directing their spring production of A Year with Frog and Toad_. An original member of the Broadway cast of**_A Year with Frog and Toad**, Ms. Ferland’s extensive credits include originating the role of Little Red Riding Hood in Stephen Sondheim’s Into the Woods, as well as her Broadway debut at age 13 in Sunday in the Park with George, and The Crucible.

“We are thrilled to have an actress of Danielle’s caliber working with our students,” said Burgess Clark, BCT Executive Artistic Director. “Her extensive knowledge of this piece, combined with her innate understanding of what it’s like to be a young actor, makes this an experience our students will never forget. We are honored to be the first children’s theatre Danielle has worked with on this production.”

According to Ms. Ferland, the children’s version of A Year with Frog and Toad is extremely similar to the original Broadway production with themes that remain relevant and timeless. “The main focus of this show is to celebrate friendship,” explains Ms. Ferland. “No matter where we are in life, we need to remain true to our friends and to ourselves. These themes are played out in such a way as to appeal to both children and adults. This is not a kitschy show. It’s a lighthearted, fun musical that teaches valuable lessons about respect, friendship and loyalty. Plus, I just love the relationship between Frog and Toad!”

The cast of A Year with Frog and Toad features 16 young performers from 13 communities. They include: Andover resident Kim Uggerholt; Belmont resident Alex Aroyan; Boston residents Kevin Paquette and Conrad Krendel-Clark; Boxford resident Kristina Kastrinelis; Braintree resident Rachel Padell; Brookline residents Ryan Cook and Davie Kaim; Burlington resident Futaba Shioda; Danvers resident Briana Fallon; Hamilton resident Ian Shain; Methuen residents Alexandra Berube and Linnea Schulz; Newton resident Julia Fein; Wellesley resident Audree Hedequist; and North Reading resident William Goldstein.
