MT Ed Summer Theatre Camp The Mad Adventures of Mr. Toad
Join Mr. Toad on his musical mad adventures-it’s a smashing hit in more ways than one! This is a delightful, upbeat version of Kenneth Grahame’s ever-popular Wind in the Willows. Our eccentric but likeable Toad of Toad Hall, given to ’crazes,’ has a problem: he is obsessed with motorcars and ends up crashing them everywhere he goes! Despite the sincere efforts of his dear friends Badger, Rat and Mole, Toad’s madness gets the best of him and he ends up in prison for his reckless driving after a hysterical episode with the judge. Toad’s enemies, the weasels, couldn’t be happier to have him behind bars as they plot to overtake Toad’s estate! You’ll be thoroughly entertained when the weasels sing their wickedly deviant song, ’The Good Life’ as they plan to take over Toad Hall. Meanwhile, the jailer’s daughter, Polly, helps Toad escape prison dressed as a washerwoman! Yet another madcap scene ensues when Toad finally meets up with his friends again, and they devise a clever scheme to recapture Toad Hall from the weasels. With an exciting and humorous musical score featuring songs such as ’A Danger to Society,’ ’Down with Toad,’ and ’A Quiet Drive in the Country,’ this enthralling musical adaptation has been written specifically for simple production, with an extremely flexible cast and many great, small roles. Let the music and magic of Mr. Toad take you and your audience on a wild ride.
