frog-and-toad2Richland College presents “A Year With Frog and Toad,” April 30-May 3 in the Arena Theatre.

The characters of Arnold Lobel’s well-loved book hop from the page to the stage in this whimsical, Tony-nominated musical. “A Year With Frog and Toad” follows two great friends — the cheerful, popular Frog and the rather grumpy Toad — through four, fun-filled seasons.

The jazzy, upbeat score bubbles with melody and wit, making it an inventive, exuberant, and enchanting musical for the whole family.

Tickets are free and will be given on a first come, first served basis. Seating is limited. Showtimes are nightly at 7:30 p.m. on April 30-May 3 and at 2:30 p.m. on May 3. For more information, call 972-238-6256.

Richland College to stage ‘Glass Menagerie’

GlassMenagerieRichland College presents “The Glass Menagerie,” a play by Tennessee Williams. In this powerful and painful family drama, aging Southern belle Amanda longs for her youth and strives to give her two grown children a better life.

Things change when Tom brings home a friend to meet the painfully shy Laura. Richland College’s production stars Dallas actress Mary-Margaret Pyeatt as Amanda and is directed by Richland College Professor Gregory Lush, who recently starred as John Wilkes Booth in Theatre Three’s production of “Assassins.”
