THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS
 

Sydney’s favourite family entertainment The Wind in the Willows continues its well-loved summer tradition returning to the beautiful surrounds of Royal Botanic Garden, Sydney, playing from Friday 5 to Sunday 28 January 2018.

Kenneth Grahame’s immortal story of life on the riverbank is a rollicking yet gentle adventure, starring the pompous, arrogant, vain, hilarious Toad – a favourite with children everywhere.  Toad, along with his better-behaved friends, Ratty, Mole, Otter and Badger, as well as the rascally Weasel, have come to life every summer for the past 15 years providing enchanting and lively entertainment for all the family.  

This critically acclaimed outdoor theatre production delivers music, songs and laughs. There is 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. The young ‘rabbits’ are encouraged to get involved in the action, and are given every opportunity to scream out loud, sing along and become part of the adventure. With laughs and surprises for children and adults, this is interactive theatre at its best.
