Perfect Family Theatre Returns for Summer

Royal Botanic Gardens, Melbourne & Sydney

It’s summertime again, which means family entertainment in with the return of Kenneth Grahame’s The Wind in the Willows proudly presented by the Australian Shakespeare Company.

PLUS WIN!! … We have 2x family passes to give away to see The Wind in the Willows in January at Sydney’s Royal Botanic Gardens. Valid to see the show on either Friday January 8 or Saturday January 9 at 10:30am. To enter simply send in your Name & Mobile Number to with the subject title of ‘Wind in the Willows’. Entries close December 11. Winners drawn at random and contacted directly. 

From Wednesday 6 to Sunday 24 January 2021 the amazing Mr Toad and his bonny, boisterous pals will be heading to Melbourne’s Royal Botanic Gardens & Sydney’s Royal Botanic Garden  to entertain the young and young-at-heart in Glenn Elston’s outdoor production of The Wind in The Willows.

Children will giggle and howl at the characters’ mad antics; go on an adventure with Head Chief Rabbit, Ratty and Mole; then join a dangerous mission with the Rat Pack and Badger Patrol to rescue little, lost Portly the Otter from the Wild Wood.

This is interactive theatre at its best and will have the children calling out, “He’s behind you!” and singing, “Waggle your ears, wiggle your nose,” or the inimitable “Quack quack quackadyquack!”

So, pack a picnic along with the kids and head on down to the riverbank for this rollicking promenade production.

The Wind in the Willows is Australia’s best-loved affordable family entertainment.
