The Wind in the Willows is a family musical, based on the 1908 book, by the English novelist, Kenneth Grahame.
It concerns Mole, an underground creature, who, feeling the stirrings of Spring, leaves his burrow for the World Above. He wants to see a rainbow and hear the wind in the willows. Unsure of his abilities but spontaneous and inventive, with a good nose and poor eyesight, he courageously ventures into unknown territory.
He meets Ratty, a river dweller and poet, Otter, the local gossip, the reclusive and authoritative Badger, and Toad, the feckless, reckless, motor enthusiast. He learns how to make his way in the world, braves the Wild Wood, does battle with the wicked Weasels, Stoats and Ferrets, and in the end, learns about friendship and self-worth.
He see the rainbow and hears the wind in the willows. Fulfilled, he returns to his home, happy with it and happy in the knowledge that he can leave it or come back to it anytime he wants.
