East Bay Children’s Theatre continues its long-standing relationship with award-winning playwright and composer/lyricist Ron Lytle, who has polished up this classic vehicle (Kenneth Grahame’s “The Wind in the Willows”) with eight sparkling new tunes, plenty of laughs and daffy new characters. With The Great and Glorious Mr. Toad in the driver’s seat, this is one road-trip you won’t want to miss!
When the batty J. Thaddeus Toad is overtaken by motor mania, everybody dives for the ditches! Cantankerous Badger, philosophical Rat and wide-eyed Mole vow to save their friend from himself, but how can Toad resist the lure of the open road? Adventure awaits just around every bend… along with a desperate jailbreak, a band of bumbling Bobbies, and a pack of felonious Weasels.
