Centenary Stage Company’s Young Audience Series Returns

HACKETTSTOWN, N.J. – Centenary Stage Company’s Young Audience Series returns for the 2023-2024 season with “A Year with Frog and Toad” September 28th through October 2nd. Performances will take place in the Little Theatre of the Centenary University campus located at 400 Jefferson Street, Hackettstown. Tickets for these performances are $15 for adults and $10 for students and children under 12. For more information visit centenarystageco.org or call the box office at (908) 979-0900.

“A Year with Frog and Toad” tells the story of two friends, the cheerful and popular Frog, and the rather grumpy Toad. 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 friends celebrate and rejoice in the differences that make them unique and special. Part vaudeville, part make believe, “A Year with Frog and Toad” tells the story of a friendship that endures throughout the seasons.

The Centenary Stage Company’s Young Audience Series is part of the professional Centenary Stage Company’s mission to serve the region’s youth with performances and workshops throughout the year. Several times a year, the Young Audience Series offers stage adaptations of classic children’s literature at the Centenary Little Theater. In addition to “in-house” performances, the Young Audience Series offers a selection of productions available for touring.
