The Secret Lives of Toads
The Secret Lives of Toads
By D.W. Gregory.

Cast: 5m., 18w., expandable to 38 (includes 15 either gender, doubling possible.) Poor Harvey faces his first day at a brand new school, where things look none too inviting. The cool kids have staked out their territory on the playground, and there's no room in their cliques for nerds or dweebs or other kids with weird attitudes—like that shy girl, Cissy, who never talks, or that tough girl, Barrie, who plays with frogs. When Harvey befriends these luckless souls, he is suddenly thrust into the middle of a simmering feud between them and the snootiest girl in school. Meanwhile, the frogs have their own ideas about what it means to feel stuck. The excitement peaks in the science lab, when frogs and kids find themselves thrown together on the wrong side of a locked door. Area staging. Approximate Running Time: 45 minutes.
