Save the date for Motlow State’s performance of Too Many Frogs

LYNCHBURG, Tenn. — Rabbit lives alone. He cooks for himself, cleans up after himself, and reads himself a nightly bedtime story. It’s a pleasant life, and Rabbit likes it. Then along comes Froggie—wet from a rainstorm, fixing snacks, and fluffing pillows to make story time more cozy. And it’s all too much. This is the play synopsis provided by the publisher of Too Many Frogs, the play chosen for an upcoming performance from the Motlow State Theatre Department.
