Auditions: BAOS' The Wind in the Willows
Based on Kenneth Grahame’s best-selling children’s classic, with a book by Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes and songs by the award-winning George Stiles and Anthony Drewe, THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS is a wild, thrill-seeking tale.
This riotous comedy follows Mole, Rat, Badger, and the impulsive Mr. Toad, whose insatiable need for speed lands him in serious trouble. With his beloved home under threat from the notorious Chief Weasel and a gang of sinister Wild Wooders, Toad must attempt a daring escape, leading to a series of misadventures and a heroic battle to recapture Toad Hall. Full of humour, wit, a gorgeous, soaring score, and heart-warming lessons of friendship, THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS is the perfect fit for family audiences everywhere.
George Stiles and Anthony Drewe are the Olivier Award-winning team behind Mary Poppins (2004), Half a Sixpence (2016), Betty Blue Eyes, Honk!, Soho Cinders and many more, setting the standard for British musical theatre for over 30 years.
With a wide range of animal and human characters, the show is full of flexibility over casting in gender, age and ethnicity. There are opportunities to feature talented members of the company in many moments of song, dance and drama.
