THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS – The Musical
The Wind in the Willows brings an explosion of anarchy, humour and heart to Trinity Theatre this Christmas!
Brought to you by the same team that produced last year’s five-star production of The Wizard of Oz, this sparkling new musical by Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes features amazing designs, explosive choreography and a gloriously British score by Olivier-Award-winning composer and lyricist George Stiles and Anthony Drewe.
Ratty, Badger and Mole join the exuberant Toad and embark on a series of adventures and misadventures caused by his insatiable need for speed! Imprisoned for theft and with his existence under threat from the inhabitants of the Wild Wood, Toad must attempt a daring escape to defend Toad Hall. Featuring spectacular stagecraft and a company of professional actors as well as an ensemble of young local performers and a live orchestra this is set to be Trinity’s wildest adventure!
Based on Kenneth Grahame’s treasured novel, the production will open on the 13th December 2018,
Trinity Theatre’s production is directed by John Martin, Trinity Theatre Artistic Director, “I’m delighted to be able to get the rights to this brand-new musical by some of the leading talents in the world of British musical theatre. This version takes a fresh modern look at a classic tale with its emphasis on friendship and tolerance and has a very important message for today”.
Trinity Theatre is renowned as a pillar of the Kent theatre & arts community. “Trinity welcomes anyone and everyone to come together and experience the arts through the widest possible range of cultural activities. This year’s Christmas Show truly resonates how we feel about our local community and why the work we do and the position we hold is so important to all generations.” Alex Green, Executive Director of Trinity
