characters from Kenneth Grahame's classic story will delight
audiences of all ages in this joyful Broadway musical adaptation. The principal
characters are primarily adults, however there will be ample opportunities for
children of all ages to be part of the ensemble.
This a warm and wonderful tale about the friendship and struggles of four
very human-like riverbank animals, Rat, Mole, Toad and Badger, their arch
enemies the dreaded tap-dancing Weasels and Stoats, and many supporting
Squirrels, Rabbits and other woodland creatures. Its themes include the
importance of friends and community, and of learning to get along with others
who are different from us. Briefly Mole, a curious young woman, leaves her
underground life for adventure, and meets the kindly Water Rat, who agrees to
show her the world. That world includes the loveably conceited Mr. Toad, whose
outrageous enthusiasm for motorcars brings trouble to everyone, and the old
boxing champion, Badger, who leads them to victory over the evil Weasels and
Stoats who have captured Toad's ancestral home.
In addition to the principal characters, there are many delightful "cameo"
roles, including a kindly but dumb Jailer's daughter, a hilarious Judge,
Prosecutor and Clerk of the Court, and a stereotypical Frenchman. The Weasels
and Stoats chorus will be made up primarily of teenage to young adults who like
wild musical numbers and dancing, and the Rabbit chorus and other woodland
creatures who will be primarily younger children. The show is chock full of
music, with up to 20 musical pieces, ranging from tender love songs to rousing
production numbers full of dance and other wild antics.
