Rose Theatre Kingston Announces 2016 Christmas Show

The theatre has confirmed that it will be presenting a production of Kenneth Grahame’s classic The Wind in the Willows, adapted and directed by Ciaran McConville. 


Following on from the theatre’s successful production of A Christmas Carol (also directed by Ciaran McConville), this new festive treat will also feature a cast of young actors from the Rose Youth Theatre as well as being led by professional actors, who have yet to be confirmed.

When Mole abandons his spring cleaning in search of adventure, little does he expect to be scooped-up by Ratty, Badger and the irrepressible Toad.

From summer-days messing about in boats, to an automobile addiction and an evil invasion from the Wild Woods, Mole finds himself hurtling towards the historic Battle for Toad Hall.

A story of friendship and adventure, The Wind in the Willows is a tale that will delight audiences of all ages and is one of the best loved books of all time.

As well as being directed and adapted for the stage by Ciaran McConville, the creative team also includes set designs by Timothy Bird, music composed by Eammon O’Dwyer and sound designed by Leigh Davies.

The Wind in the Willows will play at the Rose Theatre in Kingston from the 6th December to the 3rd January 2017. For more information and to book tickets visit:
