Toad of Toad Hall

7th - 10th August 2008

The evergreen tale of life on the river bank and rural tranquility with its inhabitants - Mole, Ratty and Badger - is shattered by the eccentric behavior of Toad, in this fun-filled musical adaptation of Kenneth Grahame's book "The Wind in the Willows". A.A Milne’s Toad of Toad Hall is bought magically to life in this enchanting tale of adventure,friendship, courage, and hope by Exeter Little Theatre Company.

 

Toad has a few great loves - like caravanning, motor cars and generally having a good time. Toad's madness finally gets the better of him as he ends up behind bars for his persistent reckless driving. Toad's enemies of the Wild Wood couldn't be happier to see him in prison as they plot to overtake Toad's estate, Toad Hall.

 

Toad manages to escape from prison and yet another adventure starts as he returns to Toad Hall, to find it occupied by his enemies. It's then up to foolish Toad - helped by kind Rat, wise Badger and gentle Mole as they all rally round in his hour of need, and win back Toad Hall.

 

A tale of adventure, friendship, courage, and hope. A ride you won't want to ever forget! So what are you waiting for? Climb aboard!

 

Poop! Poop!
