The Wind In The Willows: 9 - 12 february 2005

Dave Pibworth as Toad - Poop Poop!TATS’ recent production was a musical adaptation of Kenneth Graham’s The Wind in the Willows. The show, directed by Cathy Swift, ran at the Village Hall from February 9-12.

John Morley’s script brings the well-loved characters of Toad, Ratty, Mole and Badger to life, adds some new ones and weaves a splendid adventure, which Cathy felt was sure to delight family audiences.

Reactions and feedback from people who came to see the show suggest that she was right!

And, though not a traditional panto, The Wind in the Willows nonetheless featured a pantomime horse as well as providing the cast with opportunities for cross-dressing! Cathy promised that there would be plenty of audience participation, and there was!
