With epic show tunes and killer beats, this classic story is brought popping and locking into the twenty-first century in an extraordinary new hip-hop musical. Featuring fast bikes, fierce moves and fabulous vocals. Starring the Olivier award-winning Clive Rowe (Guys & Dolls, CBBC’s Tracy Beaker) as Badger.
Mole’s first day in ‘The Willows’. The kids look a bit rough. Surely Mr Badger will look out for her, while hip-hop cool girl Rattie, rich kid rapper Toad and street-dancing Otter teach her the ways of the Riverbank. But when Toad gets locked up for joyriding, the Weasel Clan break in and squat his pad, the Pool Hall. Now it's only a matter of time before Chief Weasel reveals Mole’s dark secret...
After their smash hit street-dance Jungle Book, the award-winning Metta Theatre bring you a bold new take on this much loved classic.
All performances of In The Willows will be performed in British Sign Language.
Duration: 2 hours 5mins with interval
