The Yvonne Arnaud Youth Theatre presents
The Wind in the Willows
“Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing – absolutely nothing- half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.”
When Mole pops up into the open air, a wonderful new world full of exhilarating adventures and new friends is revealed; boating with the gentle Ratty, feasting with the noble Badger and a series of mad-cap escapades with the reckless Mr Toad. Not to mention the dastardly Wild Wooders plotting revolution.
The audacious Mr Toad leads the friends from one adventure to another: upturned caravans, stolen motorcars, train chases. But after Toad’s daring prison escape, can they all join together and beat the sinister inhabitants lurking within the Wild Wood and save Toad Hall?
After recent successes including Fantastic Mr Fox, Just So Stories and Pinocchio, Act Three tackles this exciting adaptation of Kenneth Grahame’s timeless children’s classic story.
