“Enjoyable, charm laden show” The Stage
When Mole abandons spring-cleaning for the delights of the riverbank, he has no idea of the adventures that lie ahead. With Toad's obsession for all things fast causing chaos (poop, poop!), it falls upon his friends Ratty, Mole and wise old Badger to save him. But that means coming face-to-face with the ferrets and weasels of the Wild Wood...
In this delightful adaptation of Kenneth Grahame's classic story of friendship and bravery, this winter warmer will take you on a journey through the seasons. A wonderfully funny tale brought to life with music, songs and the usual Polka magic!
