A Year With Frog & Toad
Oceanside Theatre Company, operating The Brooks Theatre and Studio 219, presents A Year With Frog & Toad musical live on stage at the Brooks, December 6 to 22, 2013. Tickets now on sale. The theatre is located at 217 North Coast Hwy in Oceanside.
A Year With Frog & Toad, book and lyrics by Willie Reale, music by Robert Reale, based on the books by Arnold Lobel, is stage-directed by Dana Carr, music directed by Jeffrey Lehman. Arnold Lobel’s well-loved characters hop from the page to the stage in Robert and Willie Reale’s Tony-nominated musical A Year With Frog & Toad. This whimsical show follows two great friends – the cheerful, popular Frog and the rather grumpy Toad – through four, fun-filled seasons. Waking from hibernation in the Spring, Frog and Toad plant gardens, swim, rake leaves, go sledding, and learn life lessons along the way. The two best friends celebrate and rejoice in their differences that make them unique and special. Part vaudeville, part make believe, all charm, A Year With Frog & Toad tells the story of a friendship that endures, weathering all seasons.
The show times are Fridays, December 6, 13, 20, at 7:30 pm; Saturdays, December 7, 14, 21, at 2:00; and Sundays, December 8, 15, 22 at 2:00 pm. The detailed schedule is as follows:

Author Paul Holmes at Surf Museum
Journalist and author Paul Holmes’ latest book is the biography of a man who is such a rock star in the worlds of surfing and sailing that he is known worldwide by just one name. Hobie, the man and the brand, created an empire of surfboards, catamarans, monohull sailboats, powered craft, radio-controlled model gliders, apparel, sunglasses and more. That was just the foundation for many other amazing endeavors in this incredible life story of a Californian surfer whose prime motivation was always simply, in his own words, “to build them a toy, and a game to play with it.”
Twenty-seven months in the making, this superb quality 12″x9″ 300-page book comprises 120,000 words of text accompanied by 585 photographs and illustrations that document Hobie’s entire life and career. It’s an epic by any measure and a fitting testament to an amazing man as he enters his eightieth year. $60.
