–Theatre G
For these four friends, life on the river is the greatest adventure of all!

Rat, Mole, and Badger's idyllic days on the river are cut short by Mr. Toad's harebrained shenanigans. When one such scheme lands them in hot water, it's up to the four friends to save the river from the wicked weasels of the Wild Wood.

Adapted by T. James Belich. Based on the novel by Kenneth Grahame.
