Mainstage Theatre delights with 'Frog and Toad'

In Review

(Continued)

ANDERSON, Ind. —

It’s fun to see the little ones in the chorus rapt by the performance on stage, even putting their hands over their ears when they anticipate Toad’s explosive shout at his garden. The musical tunes are supported with uncomplicated piano arrangements, but they still manage to make the wee ones dance in their seats from time to time.

The play’s message is a sweet one, and well-portrayed. Spencer Martin reminds us that though the seasons change, “One thing will never change. Frog and Toad will always be good friends."

Children as well as adults will enjoy this production full of whimsy and simple charms, which moves along with good timing. Some of the upstage speaking roles could do with a little more projection, which may well come along in performance.

The play opens today, running through this weekend and next. Tickets may be reserved by calling the box office at 644-5111 and are available at Mainstage, 124 W. Ninth Street, up to one hour in advance of the show.
