Genuine chills are provided in this tale of a governess, left in charge of a boy and a girl at a lonely estate, who begins to suspect that the ghosts of two former servants have hideous designs upon the children. But the governess is the only one who can see the ghosts—and to complicate matters further, the children may know more than they're telling. If the governess is right, the children are in terrible peril, but if she's wrong, she herself might be driving them mad.
With every twist in the plot (or turn of the screw) the tension increases until something—or someone—must snap.

A hit on Broadway, A Year with Frog and Toad was nominated for three Tony Awards – including Best Musical. Based on Arnold Lobel's well-loved books, and featuring a hummable score by Robert and Willie Reale, 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 the differences that make them unique and special. Part vaudeville, part make believe... all charm, A Year with Frog and Toad tells the story of a friendship that endures throughout the seasons.
The jazzy, upbeat score of A Year with Frog and Toad bubbles with melody and wit, making it an inventive, exuberant and enchanting musical for the whole family.

On Highway 57 somewhere between Frog Level and Smyrna, stands a gas station. Across the blacktop is a roadside eatery called the “Double Cupp Diner.” The four guys at the station (Jim, Jackson, Eddie, and L.M.) have been known to do some auto repairs, but only when aided by quantities of time and beer. The Cupp sisters (Prudie and Rhetta) celebrate their home cooking with the same zeal they bring to being neighborly with the boys. This musical is a tribute to life by the roadside!
Pump Boys and Dinettes began its success in the summer of 1981 with late-night performances around Manhattan. Soon the group joined with long-time friends at Dodger Productions to mount Pump Boys and Dinettes Off-Broadway. Critics and audiences alike responded ecstatically, and after four months of capacity business, Pump Boys and Dinettes moved to Broadway where the show received a Tony Award® nomination as “Best Musical of 1982” and four Drama Desk Award nominations, including “Outstanding Musical for 1981-1982.”
