The Wind and the Willows

Based on the book The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame.
Join us for this classic story of friendship and adventure! Good-hearted Water Rat, shy and curious Mole, and sensible Badger team up to save the wildly impulsive Mr. Toad. Will the animals be able to convince Mr. Toad to give up stealing human beings' motor cars and return to being a simple Toad before the devious weasels, ferrets and stoats take over Toad Hall?

The charm of the story and the love the animals share for their world is brought to life by the students grades 5-8 in this exciting new partnership between WPZ and SPT at the Greenlake Bathhouse Theater

Age: Grades 5-8
Fee: $325
*Rehearsals will take place at Woodland Park Zoo's Education Center Mondays and Wednesdays 4-6 p.m. Sep 15 - Oct 8.  Click on link above for further details regarding rehearsal and performance dates and times.
