 Samford University's Theatre for Young Audiences is very pleased to announce the  upcoming production of the musical The Wind in the Willows:

Written by Kenneth Grahame and adapted for the stage by Alan Bennett with music by Jeremy Sams, this classic for all ages follows the anthropomorphic animals Mole, Rat, Badger, Toad and their friends on adventures from the River Bank, through the Wild Woods and into the Wide World, teaching and learning lessons in kindness,patience, morality and loyalty.

Synopsis :

It all about TOAD!  His current enthusiasm is for motorcars, which he embraces passionately with out the formality of learning to drive.  After several narrow shaves, his friends, Rat, Mole, Otter and Badger ground him for his own safety at his home, Toad Hall.  But, Toad eludes them and appropriates another car, which lands him in jail.  In his absence, the weasels take over Toad Hall and Toad returns to find his elegant mansion in shambles.  It takes his friends to drive the weasel out and hopefully restore Toad to his sense.  Or does it?
