Young actors take a musical leap

Surrey Youth Theatre Company actors presented classic story on the weekend.

Toad (Cassandra Strain) coaxes her seeds to grow during Surrey Youth Theatre Company’s performance of the musical A Year With Frog and Toad on Saturday at the Surrey Arts Centre.

The play, which was presented March 4-6, stays true to the spirit of the original books by Arnold Lobel and follows cheerful Frog and sometimes grumpy Toad through four fun-filled seasons as they discover the importance of friends and forgiveness.

Also featured in the production were Ethan Donnelly (Frog), Benjamin Dunnill (Snail), Jordan Aisenstat (Mouse) and Marina Cyr, Fiona Firby and Adriana Dobbie (The Three Birds). Completing the cast were Kana Saarni, Paisley Hoogenraad, Kallista Van Beest, Madison Smith, Andrea Moorhouse, Elizabeth Olsson and Jenna Gunderson.
