The Wind in the Willows description

From the peaceful pleasures of Ratty’s beloved river bank to the fearful frights and wicked weasels of the Wild Wood, join Mole and Ratty on their marvellous adventures, along with gruff old Badger and magnificent Mr.Toad. A beautiful new adaptation of Kenneth Grahame’s much loved classic by award winning theatre company Box Tale Soup, this wildly creative Wind in the Willows features fantastic puppetry and a charming original score.

Whatever happened to Wind in the Willows

Very dissapointing and not the good old show we were used to when our children were young.It was a mishmash of mime, dance, panto etc. Our grand daughter thught the artificial snow was the best part. That should tell you something about the rest!

Very good show but could have been better

I really liked the acting and dancing and also the music and the lighting plus some of the effects.However I would expect better costumes and make up to match the story, the animals could look more than the animals, more realistic costumes, as much as this can be achieved, the narrator could speak less and the animals could speak a bit rather not at all.The stage could have changed from time to time instead of being all the set up the same, only few furniture were moving around to change the set up of the stage.The actors/dancers were amazing!

Mediocre show, thought it needed more was very brown. Thought the main characters costumes could have been more animated.The props were imaginative but brown.Enjoyed Alan's narration and thought the dancers were extremely agile.

The Wind in the Willows

Very good, but view from first few rows not so good for small children even with booster seats as quite a lot happens at stage floor level.

The best way to spend a wet monday evening

Tickets for The Wind In The Willows were a Christmas gift for my Mother-in Law who is currently reading the book to my 12 year old son. We also took my daughter aged 7. Having had a hellish drive through torrential rain from Windsor we parked our car literally on the doorstep of the Duchess Theatre, nipped into the little Italian next door for pre-theatre pizza and had our inexpensive seats upgraded as the upper circle was not very full. I almost shed a tear in the first ten minutes, Mole unrolled, into a fully developed and utterly convincing character, Toad was hilarious. The dancing was beautiful the relationships believable with minimal costume and scenery, there was even snow, and a police chase around the theatre during the interval. The music and singing was sublime... and the narration by Sir Tony was spot on. Mercifully short at an hour and 40 minutes when you have children and it is a school night, we were tucked up in bed by 10pm, feeling warm and fuzzy. We all thought the whole performance was utterly brilliant. Wouldn't mind going again next Monday.....

The Duchess theatre is such an intimate venue and the show was magical. The story of Toad and his friends is something from everyones childhood and the performance was ingenious executed.

Was very disappointed with the show. Expected more ballet dancing and better costumes.
