Toad, Ratty, Mole and Badger are returning to the West End this Christmas! The Wind in the Willows will play a limited engagement from November 26 through January 17, 2015
at the Vaudeville Theatre. Directed and choreographed by Will Tuckett, the critically acclaimed Royal Opera House production will officially open on December 2.
Based on Kenneth Grahame's timeless classic, the adventures of four woodland friends are retold through dance, song, music and puppetry. From a dusty old attic a wonderful tale unfolds; the peaceful riverbank world is rocked by a speeding car, a racing train and criminal deeds cooked up in the Wild Wood.
Drawing inspiration from the music of Edwardian composer George Butterworth, the action is set to a score by Martin Ward, with narration written by former Poet Laureate Sir Andrew Motion. Design is by The Quay Brothers and Nicky Gillibrand. Full casting will be announced soon.
