The Wind in the Willows: The New Musical

This much-loved musical of adventure will be arriving at your local cinema this Easter. Screened in surround sound and high definition, you may forget that you aren’t watching the musical in real life at the London Palladium. Head down to see the West End favourite at one of these participating cinemas.

The musical adaption of Kenneth Grahame’s The Wind in the Willows is brought to stage by Jamie Hendry, MJE Productions and Josh Gilinski. The production follows Ratty (Simon Lipkin), Badger (Gary Wilmot), Mole (Craig Mather) and Mr Toad (Rufus Hound) as they embark on a journey through the colourful set design by Peter McKintosh.

What’s On at the Theatre in London

Rufus Hound’s performance will tickle younger audience members as well as adults, who might know him as Sam Swift from Doctor Who as well as his theatre appearances in Don Quixote (RSC) and the original production of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (Savoy Theatre). Denise Welch from Coronation Street and Waterloo Road plays the role of Mrs Otter. Other actors include Neil McDermott, best known for portraying Ryan Malloy in Eastenders and Simon Lipkin (Ratty) who was a recent star in the world premier of Nativity The Musical.The Wind in the Willows: The New Musical

Creatives Rachel Kavanaugh (Director) and Aleta Collins (Choreographer) spearhead this musical, produced in association with Theatre Royal Plymouth.

The Wind in The Willows is in cinemas nationwide from Easter, Sunday 1 April; tickets bookable at Willows Musical.
