From Page to Stage: A Year with Frog and Toad – A Readers' Theater Workshop for Children

The Birmingham Public Library (BPL), in partnership with the Birmingham Children’s Theatre (BCT) and Junior League of Birmingham (JLB), invites you to attend From Page to Stage: A Year with Frog and Toad – A Readers’ Theater Workshop for Children.

In anticipation of the upcoming BCT performance of A Year with Frog and Toad, BPL will be hosting free workshops at several of its area libraries. Children, aged 7 to 12, will learn how stories come alive through the magic of theater. JLB members will coach the children and introduce them to similar literature located in their local library. Each child will receive two free tickets (one child and one adult ticket) to the BCT A Year with Frog and Toad production in December 2019.

Waking from hibernation in the spring, Frog and Toad plant gardens, swim, rake leaves, go sledding and learn life lessons along the way. Arnold Lobel's treasured characters hop from page to stage as these two best friends celebrate and rejoice in the differences that make them unique and special. Part vaudeville, part make-believe...all charm, A Year with Frog and Toad tells the story of a friendship that endures throughout every season.

Workshop space is limited, so contact your participating library location to register a child for the workshop. Register through the BPL events calendar by clicking on a library link below.
