WCHS musical comedy opens next weekend

Tigard’s Westside Christian High School is putting on a show.

Next week, the private Christian high school will unveil its production of “A Year with Frog and Toad,” a family-friendly musical comedy based on the children’s tales by Arnold Lobel.

The play showcases a year’s worth of adventures by a happy-go-lucky frog and a grumpy toad who deal with judgmental birds, survive a high-speed sledding disaster and eat a few too many delicious cookies.

Written for Lobel’s daughter by Robert and Willie Reale in 2002, “A Year with Frog and Toad” was the first professional children’s show brought to Broadway.

The curtain rises at 7 p.m. April 24 at Alpenrose Opera House, 6149 S.W. Shattuck Road, with additional performances at 7 p.m. April 25 and a 2:30 matinee on April 26.

Tickets are $8 for adults, $6 for seniors, $4 for students and children. Tickets are available at wchsonline.org, or at the Alpenrose box office.
