LIVINGSTON, NJ - Phyllis Meranus, president of Livingston Community Players, and Lois Dyer, vice president of LCP and Producer of A Year with Frog and Toad have joined forces again to present an upbeat entertaining show that is geared for children.  

Based on the Arnold Lobel books, the show is a musical treatment of friendship with Lobel’s characters hopping from page to stage.

This whimsical musical follows two best friends, the cheerful, popular Frog and the rather grumpy Toad through four fun filled seasons.

Dyer and Meranus have been working together since LCP’s production of Annie in 2002.  

They first met through the then YMHA’s Bits of Hits and Community Theater productions, with Lois backstage either stage managing or producing, and Phyllis displaying her talents either on stage or serving as the head of the Theater Arts Committee.  

When the Township of Livingston decided to revive Livingston Community Players, the two collaborated to produce quality musical theater.

A Year with Frog and Toad (TYA) is sponsored by Regal Bank, the Township of Livingston, Livingston SYLS and the Arts Council of Livingston. 

Performances are on Nov. 15 and 16 with two matinees each day at 11:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m., and take place at the Eisenhower Corporate Center, 290 W. Mt. Pleasant Avenue, Livingston.  

Tickets can be purchased locally at Silverman’s; Jay’s; the Community/Sr. Center or by contacting  (search Frog and Toad) or call Joan (973)743-0976.
