Hi: 19° Lo:11°
THE Wind in the Willows is this year's Christmas production by the Birmingham Repertory Theatre.
It will be staged over seven weeks at the Crescent Theatre in Brindley Place with The Rep still being redeveloped.
Kenneth Grahame's classic riverbank story tells the charming tale of Ratty, Mole, Badger and Toad as they embark on a glorious adventure that leads to Toad Hall, to the perilous wild wood and finally to battle.
It was written in 1908 by the former secretary of the Bank of England and was adapted for the stage by Alan Bennett, featuring his own brand of nostalgia and comedy.
Stuart Rogers, executive director of The Rep, said: "The Wind In The Willows is a wonderful story and perfect for family audiences.
"We're looking forward to presenting the show at the Crescent Theatre with its welcoming and intimate auditorium that will enable the audience to feel like they really have joined Ratty, Mole, Toad and Badger on the riverbank."
Tickets are already on sale priced from £14 online at www.birmingham-rep.co.uk or by calling the box office on 0121 236 4455.
