The musical retake of Kenneth Grahame’s iconic story of the mischievous Toad and his loveable companions has a book by Oscar-winning screenwriter Julian Fellowes, creator of the hugely successful Downton Abbey.

The musical has a score by the esteemed composer/lyricist team, George Stiles and Anthony Drewe. The production is directed by Rachel Kavanaugh and is co-produced by Jamie Hendry.

Describing his production of The Wind in the Willows showing at the London Palladium as a “dream come true”, Julian Fellowes said:

“For my adaptation of the Wind in the Willows, which I have loved since I was a boy, to play the London Palladium, the most famous theatre of my childhood, is to bring together two of life-long favourites. It’s a dream come true, really.”

Wind in the Willows opened at the Theatre Royal Plymouth earlier this year. It is currently running in Southampton at the Mayflower Theatre.

Rufus Hound is playing the loveable rogue Mr Toad in the musical adaption at the Mayflower Theatre and will reprise his role at the London palladium.

Wind in the Willows will open at the London Palladium on Saturday 17 June, 2017, where it will run until Saturday 9 September, 2017. The musical runs for two hours 20 minutes, including one interval. The Wind In The Willows is suitable for ages six and above.
