Sunday 27 June – Sunday 11 July
Derby Market Place
Derby Theatre excited to announce outdoor family show to be performed in the city this summer to celebrate the reopening of theatres, Derby Theatre is absolutely thrilled to announce that they will produce and present The Wind in the Willows this summer, an exciting stage adaptation by Toby Hulse of Kenneth Grahame’s classic tale, presented in the performance marquee on Derby Market Place from Sunday 27 June until Saturday 11 July.
The Wind in the Willows is a firm family favourite, a classic story for people of all ages to enjoy together, and the
perfect choice to celebrate live performances returning.
This summer, join Toad, Ratty, Mole, Badger and their animal friends for an exciting whirlwind adventure amidst the
English countryside. When Mole forfeits his spring cleaning for the lure of the luscious riverbank, he has no idea of
the thrilling journey that he and his friends are all about to embark on.
The production, directed by Trina Haldar, will feature live music, songs and a talented company of actor-musicians.
This charming and delightful adaptation remains a firm family favourite and is sure to be a seasonal summer treat
for audiences of all ages.
The Wind in the Willows is a funny, timeless tale of friendship, courage, consequences and bravery. It is the first
show to be announced for the new performance marquee on Derby Market Place, a light, airy space made to
welcome you back to the city. Derby LIVE, the city council’s arts and events arm, is working with a range of partners
to bring a programme of entertainment to the outdoor space throughout the summer.
All tickets to see The Wind in the Willows are at a welcome back price of ONLY £8 per ticket.
