The Wind in the Willows by La Boite Theatre Company

This is a charming, classic tale of adventure and discovery, in a brand-new one-man
adaptation - starring Shaka Cook (Jasper Jones). Kenneth Grahame’s rollicking tale of four
woodland creatures is one of the true enduring classics of children’s literature and writer/director
team Maxine Mellor and Kat Henry have given it a fresh coat of paint. Join Ratty, Mole, Badger and
the incorrigible Mr. Toad on their journeys, trials and misadventures around the river, the Wild
Woods and beyond. Featuring a magical set with plenty of surprises throughout, and playful
costuming and props.

The Wind in the Willows will take badgers (small and large) on a heartfelt and humorous adventure
that explores humanity, time and the value of friendship these summer school holidays. For
children aged 4 - 12 and anyone who enjoys messing about in boats.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts
funding and advisory body.

A fresh take on a classic adventure of fun for the whole family!
