JUST because you live in the Wild Wood doesn’t mean you can’t be a snappy dresser!
And just because you’re a weasel doesn’t mean you can’t have the perfect sense of style.
These two unlikely outdoors types are actors Stuart Ogden and Andy Hibbert who play the extremely unreliable Chief Weasel and Lesser Weasel in Handsworth and Hallam Theatre Company’s new production of acclaimed family musical The Wind in the Willows.
The much-loved riverbank favourite has been adapted for the stage by Oscar-winning Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes, with songs by George Stiles and Anthony Drewe, who worked on the hit West End and Broadway stage version of Mary Poppins.
This new production for Handsworth and Hallam is the South Yorkshire premiere of the show and runs at The Montgomery in Sheffield’s Surrey Street from June 19 to 22.
“This is a spectacular new take on a classic story that has been loved by generations of readers young and old,” said company spokesperson Laura Langley.
“All the characters from the River Bank, the Wild Wood and, of course, Toad Hall, are there to enjoy again as the outrageous Mr Toad joins Ratty, Mole and Badger on a crazy road trip.
“And with shady characters like Stuart and Andy lurking behind every tree stump, it promises to be a night to remember!”
Tickets for the show, which is directed and choreographed by Claire Harriott with musical direction by Ray Gallagher, are already on sale. To book call 07586293546 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
