Kenneth Grahame’s immortal story of life on the riverbank, “The Wind in the Willows”, is returning to the beautiful surrounds of the Royal Botanic Garden, Sydney, continuing its well loved summer tradition as a favourite family entertainment.
Playing from Wednesday 6 January to Saturday 23 January 2016, this rollicking yet gentle adventure, starring the pompous, arrogant, vain, hilarious Toad, is a favourite with children everywhere. Toad, along with his better behaved friends, Ratty, Mole, Otter and Badger, as well as the rascally Weasel, have come to life every summer for the past 14 years providing enchanting and lively entertainment for all the family.
This critically acclaimed outdoor theatre production delivers music, songs and laughs. There is fun for young and old as the Head Chief Rabbit transforms the audience into rabbits with a waggle of the ears and a wiggle of the nose. The young ‘rabbits’ are encouraged to get involved in the action, and are given every opportunity to scream out loud, sing along and become part of the adventure. With laughs and surprises for children and adults, this is interactive theatre at its best.
Pack a picnic, pack the kids and head on down to the riverbank at 10.30am & 6pm Wednesday to Saturday (no show 10.30am on 6 Jan, no 6pm on Sat 9 Jan). Single Tickets $25, Family of Four $90.
