Helston Theatre Company presents:

The Wind In The Willows

 

(New date) Thursday August 15 at 7.30pm (doors at 6.30pm) – Tickets £14 Adult / £8 Child – 16 & Under (10% Trebah Members Discount)

Kenneth Grahame’s wild tale about the thrill-seeking, lovable menace Mr Toad comes to life this summer at Trebah Amphitheatre.

Ratty, Badger and Mole join the eccentric Toad and embark on a series of adventures (and mis-adventures!) caused by his need for speed.

Imprisoned for theft and with his existence under threat from the inhabitants of the Wild Wood, Toad must attempt a daring escape to defend Toad Hall.

The Wind in the Willows is a heart-warming play about the joy of friendship and the beauty of nature.

Join the award-winning Helston Theatre Company as they bring this much loved classic to the stage following last year’s ‘Jamaica Inn’.

A cheeky squirrel has stolen his Chocolate Covered Nutty Snack Bar™, his niece ‘Little Red’ has wandered off the path on her way to Granny’s house, the mysterious old Wizard of the Woods is playing tricks again, and there are even rumours of a big bad Wolf in the forest!
