This dramatization of Kenneth Grahame's story concerns the friendship of the good-hearted and poetic water rat, the innocent and curious mole, and the sensible, practical badger. What tests that friendship is the arrogant, charming, slightly crazed Mr. Toad, an obsessive animal given to sudden and violent whims, like stealing motor cars and driving them recklessly about the countryside. Their thankless taskis to save Toad from himself and then rescue the magnificent Toad Hall from the weasels, ferrets and stouts who laid claim to it while Toadie was in prison.

Adapted by artistic director Joanne Bouton, this is a tale of great humor and heroics, wit, poetry and whimsy.

Tickets are $4 for adults and $3 for children ages 15 and younger.

Phoenix II TheaterWorks is a cultural project of Harford Community College and is assisted by grants from the State Arts Council and the Harford County government through the Harford County Cultural AdvisoryBoard.
