Break A Frog's Leg
Springtime is frantic time for Lori Speciale, director (and makeup artist) of the annual St. John's Middle School musical. This year, her pre-preparatory repertory company is staging "A Year with Frog and Toad," written by Robert and Willie Reale based on Arnold Lobel's children's stories. The show was first produced in 2000; its Broadway run was in 2003. If Lori's track record is any indication, 2009 in Rancho Santa Margarita will be another one for the record books. Dress rehearsals were today, with students starring both on stage and behind the scenes, running spotlights and the soundboard.
