Kenneth Grahame’s wild tale about the thrill-seeking, lovable menace Mr. Toad comes to life in the brand new West End musical with a book by Oscar-winning screenwriter and DOWNTON ABBEY creator Julian Fellowes and Olivier Award-winning composers and lyricists George Stiles and Anthony Drewe.
This riotous comedy follows the impulsive Mr. Toad whose insatiable need for speed lands him in serious trouble. With his beloved home under threat for the notorious Chief Weasel and his gang of sinister Wild Wooders, Toad must attempt a daring escape leading to a series of misadventures and a heroic battle to recapture Toad Hall.
The new music by George Stiles is a welcome update to this wonderful story, ranging from grand arrangements with the whole shebang to fine, silent ballads and full-cast songs in a refreshing up-tempo.
