The Wind in the Willows
The Show
The hilarious and heart-warming adventure of Mole, Ratty, Badger and Mr Toad leaps to the West End in Julian Fellows' new musical adaptation of The Wind in the Willows. Directed by Jamie Hendry, the show stars comedian Rufus Hound as the reckless but loveable Mr Toad. Audiences have praised Hound for brilliantly encapsulating the extravagant character, vibrant moustache and pond green tweed suit to match! The show features music by Olivier Award winning composers Anthony Drewe and George Stiles. The duo previously worked alongside Fellows (Downton Abbey) for Mary Poppins the Musical and the music for this production is just as spectacular. Follow the timeless tale of friendship and adventure in the English countryside with speedy car crashes and troublesome weasels thrown into the madness! Fellows' adaptation gives the 1908 original a spurt of vibrancy with flamboyant choreography and colourful set design. Grab your tickets and catch the four enchanting friends at the impressive London Palladium and relive this classic childhood story.

History of the Wind in the Willows
Kenneth Grahame's The Wind in the Willows has remained a much-loved family favourite for over a century. The classic childhood tale has been recreated numerous times both on film and stage, some examples include a 1996 film which starred Steve Coogan as Mole and Matt Lucas took on the role of Mr Toad in 2006. The Wind in the Willows originated from Grahame's hand written letters to his partially blind son Alastair which told stories of animals with human-like qualities. The tale has captured the hearts of children and adults worldwide and its incredible success only grew after Grahame's death in 1932; The Telegraph included the novel in their '15 best children's books of all time' article in February 2017. Jamie Hendry, director of Fellows' new musical adaptation, sent free copies of the novel to every school and library in London with the belief that each child should have the opportunity to read the timeless story. Fellows' new musical premiered at Plymouth's Theatre Royal on 8th October 2016, exactly 108 years after Grahame's novel was first published in 1908.

Awards and what the Critics say
There is great excitement from critics for The Wind in the Willows musical and the show has already received brilliant feedback following its premiere in Plymouth. Devon Live emphasise how "the sets were immaculate [and] the costumes should win awards" which indicates a great sense of spectacle. The Daily Echo also praises the show's creative visual flare and how "the eye popping staging is an utter triumph. Everything from Badger's beautiful circular bookcase to lavish Toad Hall is lovingly created with exact attention to every detail." Critics also express great admiration for Hound's performance of Mr Toad. Devon Live report how "Mr Toad himself [oozes] star appeal in green and gold glitz" and The Evening Standard admire how "[the character] is full of confidence all the time and bounces round the stage - he has a gelatinous skeleton after all." The Wind in the Willows is set to be a huge hit at the London Palladium... make sure to grab your tickets now!
