Poop-poop! Toad, Badger, Rat and Mole are ready to hit the road in a chaotic musical adventure like no other!

Cast includes Colchester favourite Dale Superville!

When Toad’s motoring lands him in hot water, our reckless but lovable hero is sentenced to 20 years in prison. With the help of his loyal maid, Enid, it’s not long before he manages to escape – only to find that Toad Hall has been taken over by the Wild Wooder!

The discards of humankind, objects found along the journey and the best of the English countryside are all woven together to bring this colourful summer treat to life. Matthew Cullum (Friend or Foe and James and the Giant Peach) returns to direct this fast-moving family favourite based on the well-known Kenneth Grahame novel.

With Toad locked out of his home, can wise old Badger’s plans save the day? Will Rat and Mole be there for Toad in his hour of need? Friends, fun and fabulous adventure – Wind in the Willows has it all!

COME UP ON STAGE AT THE END OF THE SHOW AND MEET THE ANIMALS!
