The Wind in the Willows (2004)

Book by Kenneth Grahame. Adapted by David Conville and David Gooderson. Music by Carl Davis.

Laura Baggaley directed The Wind in the Willows , a classic family adventure following the animals Rat, Mole, Badger and Toad. Jamie Beamish played Toad and the award-winning Carrie Hope Fletcher made her debut at the Park as a Child Actor. Complete with songs and music, this adaptation was a sell-out success and was revived the following year, in the 2005 season.

Evening Standard

"you'd be hard pressed to find a more appropriate location for the adventures of Toad, Ratty, Mole and Badger and the leafy bowers of the Open Air Theatre add their own enchantment to this much loved children's classic."

London Theatre

"Laura Baggaley's production zips along at a fair and fluid pace...children quickly relishing the chance to hiss a villain or assist with Toad's escape from jail...Leo Conville, Simon McCoy and Terence Wilton are excellent as Mole, Ratty and Badger respectively and Jamie Beamish is highly entertaining as their bumptious friend."
