Join Rat, Mole and Badger as they try to keep their friend Toad out of mischief and save him from himself, not to mention the weasels and the skunks! The Wind in the Willows previews July 10 and opens on July 11 at Town Hall 1873 in Port Perry, running until July 20.
This unique adaptation of Kenneth Grahame’s classic family story has been penned by Canadian playwright, Michael Shamata and staged by the Theatre on the Ridge ensemble under the direction of company member, Barry McCluskey, who says “this collective of imaginative actors have encouraged me to see new perspectives grow from this familiar piece, set in the far-off fields of rural England”.
While full of adventures and fun, The Wind in the Willows is also a story about the ties of true friendship and selflessly going to any length possible for friends - even if that friend is a self absorbed Toad enamoured with automobiles! With a little music and song, clever costumes and a lot of imagination, The Wind in the Willows is a delightful way for children of all ages to spend two hours at the theatre this summer.
The Wind in the Willows runs July 10 (preview), July 11, 18, 20 at 2 pm and July 11, 13, 19 at 7:30 pm. Tickets on sale at the Town Hall 1873 box office at www.townhall1873.ca, 905 -985-8181 or in person at 302 Queen St., Port Perry. Children, family and group ticket packages available.
