THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS
*Hills performers make a splash messing about with the WIND in the WILLOWS*
When Kenneth Grahame retired as Secretary of the Bank of England and began work on his novel, the Wind in the Willows in 1908, it's unlikely he would have envisaged his children's classic being performed as a rollicking musical pantomime by a motley bunch of Adelaide Hills performers ranging in age from 7 to 72 years!
The Wind in the Willows is playing at the Living Arts Centre in Mt Barker, at the following session times:
Saturday, 13th October at 7pm
Sunday, 14th October at 2pm
Saturday, 20th October at 7pm
Sunday, 21st October at 2pm
Adult, Concession, Child and Family tickets available
