Darebin Arts Loud Mouth and La Boite Theatre Company are pleased to bring The Wind in the Willows to Melbourne for the winter school holidays.

Kenneth Grahame’s rollicking tale of four woodland creatures has been given a fresh update for Australian audiences by the award winning writer and director team of Maxine Mellor (previous winner Queensland Premier’s Drama Award) and Kat Henry.

The Wind in the Willows is a one man show, with the talented Shaka Cook (Jasper Jones, Black Diggers) playing all of the familiar characters. The show debuted at Brisbane’s Roundhouse Theatre and comes to Melbourne as part of a national tour.

Featuring a magical set with plenty of surprises throughout, and playful costuming and props, the show takes Australia’s badgers (small and large) on a heartfelt and humorous adventure that explores humanity, time and the value of friendship. The show has fun, interactive elements for kids including songs, puppetry and audience interaction.

Ideal for children aged four to 12 - and anyone who enjoys messing about in boats for that matter – debuted is a fantastic, larger than life adventure with Ratty, Mole, Badger and the incorrigible Mr Toad around the river, the Wild Woods and beyond.
