Our 14th-Annual Kids-for-Kids Musical

July 11 to 21, 2019

This musical adaptation of Kenneth Grahame’s award-winning novel follows the wild tale of the thrill-seeking, lovable menace Mr. Toad. This brand new West End musical has a book by Oscar-winning screenwriter and Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes and music and lyrics by the Olivier Award-winning composers and lyricists of Honk! George Stiles and Anthony Drewe.


This riotous comedy follows the impulsive Mr. Toad whose insatiable need for speed lands him in serious trouble. With his beloved home threatened by the notorious Chief Weasel and his sinister gang, Toad must attempt a daring escape leading to a series of misadventures and a heroic battle to recapture Toad Hall.
