In the Willows is an explosive new British musical, with soaring vocals and spectacular street dance, starring Olivier Award winner Clive Rowe, deaf street dancer Chris Fonseca (The Greatest Dancer) and Seann Miley Moore (X Factor).

Mole’s first day in ‘The Willows’. Her classmates look a bit scary. Surely Mr Badger will look out for her, as streetwise Rattie, rich kid Toad and cheeky Otter teach her the ways of The Riverbank. But when Toad gets locked up for joyriding, the Weasel Clan break into his (lily)pad. It’s now only a matter of time before Chief Weasel reveals Mole’s dark secret...

This classic story is brought leaping into the 21st century, featuring choreography by the award-winning Rhimes Lecointe (Associate choreographer for Zoo Nation, and Artistic Director of Boudicea). With ballads, beats, and backflips, this classic story is brought leaping into the 21st century in this fresh new musical for all the family.

All performances of In The Willows will be performed in British Sign Language. 

Duration: 2 hours 5mins with interval

“Young and old will marvel at Metta's joyful, fun and fresh take on a great tale.”
