Ask any elementary school student about the “Frog and Toad” children’s book series and the response is bound to be a big smile.
   Arnold Lobel’s beloved book, “A Year with Frog and Toad,” was adapted for the stage by brothers Robert and Willie Reale and appeared on Broadway. The musical follows the friends on adventures spanning one year.
   Studio 1 in partnership with Arts Alive Studio will present “A Year With Frog and Toad” at 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and Nov. 8-10, along with shows at 2 p.m. Nov. 4 and 11 at the Arts Alive Studio, 335 South Main St., Burlington.
   “This perky frog and worrywart toad spend a year together eating cookies, sledding down a hill and disregarding the teasing birds.
   “Frog, Toad and all their other friends tell tales we all can relate to and share in a fun journey of friendship along the way. I think audiences will enjoy seeing our favorite storybook characters come to life and travel through the year with Frog and Toad,” said director Alison Williams.
   Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for students and seniors and can be purchased between 5 p.m. and 9 p.m. Mondays at Studio 1, 1332 Plaza Drive, Burlington, or by calling (336) 534-0321. For more information on Studio 1’s upcoming shows, visit www.studio1on line.org.
