Toad! — A Musical “Wind In The Willows”

(Courtesy of Seattle Family Theatre, Tom & Joanne Parker)

by Beverly Warner, Mimi Bean & Wes Wright

(Perfect for Colleges/Universities, Community Groups, Children’s and Youth Theatres, High Schools, and Professional Theatres that can handle 15 characters + chorus)

A lively and sprightly version of Kenneth Grahame’s “The Wind In The Willows”.  This adaptation is packed with fast-paced, non-stop action from lights up to lights down. All of the wonderful characters are waiting for you in this Broadway style adaptation: Mr. Toad, Ratty, Moley, Badger and a delightful story of reckless abandon. The dialogue is witty and the script is cleverly devised to portray the foolishness of the self-centered, egotistical Mr. Toad and his warmhearted, well-meaning friends. Great opportunity for the use of creative animal makeup and costumes! Plenty of chances for good, exciting choreography. PLUS a well hidden yet, discernible moral is entertainingly presented. A first class score!

Available to All Groups!
