The Wind in the Willows – The Australian Shakespeare Company

"You'll enjoy it no matter what age you are" Sun Herald

"Pure charm for adults and children alike" The Age

Join Ratty, Mole, Badger, Otter, Portly and, of course, Mr Toad, as they return to the Royal Botanic Gardens, Melbourne and Sydney this summer, bringing to life Kenneth Grahame’s immortal story of life on the riverbank.

This critically acclaimed outdoor theatre production delivers music, songs, and laughs. There is fun for young and old as the Head Chief Rabbit transforms the audience into rabbits with a waggle of the ears and a wiggle of the nose. The young ‘rabbits’ are encouraged to get involved in the action and are given every opportunity to scream out loud, sing along and become part of the adventure. With laughs and surprises for children and adults, this is interactive theatre at its best.

Celebrating 31 years in the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne and 16 years in the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney, The Wind in the Willows is Australia’s best-loved affordable family entertainment, so pack a picnic, pack the kids and join in the fun!
