This Friday join Mr. Toad, Mole, Ratty and Badger on their spectacular summer adventure!

This Friday family audiences will be able to join Mr. Toad, Mole, Ratty and Badger on their fun-packed adventures in the Pitlochry Festival Theatre’s must-see, family, summer stage production of Kenneth Grahame’s enduring story of friendship, courage, consequence and bravery – The Wind in the Willows.

Adapted for the stage by Mark Powell and performed in the spectacular setting on the banks of the River Tummel, The Wind in the Willows, runs from 2 July – 12 September.

When Mole wakes up after a particularly long winter, the whole world has changed around her. The riverbank seems to be bursting with new faces, fads, and fears. Luckily for Mole, with new friends like Rat, Badger and Mr Toad motoring along for the ride through the Wild Wood, life will never be sleepy again!

Audiences can expect all their favourite characters, new music and songs, dancing and Mr Toad exclaiming gleefully ‘Poop! Poop!’ from his motorcar for everyone in Highland Perthshire to hear.

The production’s exciting cast will feature Jane McCarry (Isa Drennan in Still Game, BBC Scotland, and Granny Murray in Me Too! CBBC) as Badger; Colin McCredie (Taggart, ITV and River City , BBC Scotland) as Toad; Alicia McKenzie (Quality Street, Northern Broadsides and Blonde Bombshells of 1943, Pitlochry Festival Theatre) as Mole; Ali Watt (Blithe Spirit and A Christmas Carol, Pitlochry Festival Theatre) as Ratty; Richard Colvin (Sunshine on Leith, UK tour and A Christmas Carol, Octagon Theatre Bolton) as Weasel; Connor Going (Footloose, UK tour and The Choir of Men, US and Australia tour) as Otter and Kate Milner-Evans (Phantom of the Opera, Her Majesty’s Theatre and Crazy for You, Jamie Wilson Productions) as Rabbit. All other roles will be played by the cast.

The Wind In The Willows is perfect for groups and families of all ages! All performances are in a Relaxed Environment. Pitlochry Festival Theatre's determination to keep capacity safely reduced, and committed adherence to social-distancing, reduces the potential for, and impact of, crowded spaces and any overwhelming busy-ness. Anyone that feels the need to take some time out of a Riverside show can do so, and then return when they feel ready. The outdoor spacious setting in the Bandstand area allows the ability to move around more freely, perfect for little ones - and at the interval, there is a beautiful setting to get some space if needed. Staff will always be on-hand wearing a name badge for any questions or help required.

Pitlochry Festival Theatre also recognise booking an event is different just now. So, they’re keeping things flexible so audiences can can book for summer with the confidence that if plans change, their tickets and money can too! They will honour no-hassle refunds and exchanges for any reason (including the weather!) if it is requested at least 24 hours before the performance time.

Don’t miss your chance to join Mr. Toad, Ratty, Badger and the gang, up-close for the must-see family outdoor production of 2021!

Tickets for The Wind in the Willows are priced from just £9 plus family and multibuy discounts are available.
