The Australian Shakespeare Company proudly presents

The Wind in the Willows

Join Ratty, Mole, Badger, Otter, Portly and, of course, the “famous”  Mr Toad, as they return to the Royal Botanic Gardens in Melbourne and Sydney this Summer; bringing to life Kenneth Grahame’s immortal story of life on the riverbank.

A critically acclaimed outdoor theatre production, The Wind in the Willows delivers music, songs, and laughs. There's fun for young and old as the Head Chief Rabbit transforms the audience into rabbits with a waggle of the ears, and a wiggle of the nose. Young 'rabbits' are encouraged to get involved in the action and given every opportunity to scream out loud, sing along, and become part of the adventure. With laughs and surprises for children and adults alike, this is interactive theatre at its best.

Celebrating 31 years in the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne and 16 years in the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney, The Wind in the Willows is Australia’s best-loved affordable family entertainment, so pack a picnic, pack the kids and join in the fun!
