The Wind in the Willows
November 21, 2016 - December 31, 2016
Designed by Mila Sanders
Produced by Scott Ritchie Productions & Birmingham Ormiston Academy
The new production of The Wind in the Willows, Kenneth Grahame’s classic children’s novel, follows the success of last year’s Treasure Island and is again produced in partnership with Scott Ritchie Productions and Birmingham’s centre of excellence for creative, digital and performing arts, Birmingham Ormiston Academy (BOA).
Audiences can join the theatre on a magical journey along the riverbank, as Kenneth Grahame’s classic children’s story is brought to life in a festive production that will entertain and delight whole families.
The irreverent and playful take on the classic tale follows loyal Mole, faithful Ratty and steady old Badger. When the peace and quiet of their beloved countryside is shattered by the terrific Mr Toad and his brand new motor car, these three friends do their very best to keep Mr Toad out of trouble, but no one is prepared for the mad-cap adventure they are about to begin.
Packed with energetic performers, original music and an anarchic sense of humour, The Wind in the Willows is a festive show with a difference, and a real treat for all ages.
In line with the renewed vision of the historic and iconic theatre to develop, celebrate and showcase the talent of the city, Scott Ritchie Productions and BOA have cast the lead roles of Toad, Mole, Ratty, Badger and Chief Weasel entirely from Midlands-based professional actors.
