If you have never heard the story of The Wind In The Willows,
Honestly I didn't properly know the storyline before I went to see the play other than it's about 4 animal friends so I went into the theatre not knowing exactly what to expect. I was straight away 'into' the storyline forgetting everything else and just being captured by the play. I absolutely loved the songs, everything single one was fun and upbeat and there were none which I thought 'meh this is okay' or 'this is going on too long now' which normally happens in a musical. When we got home, my mum straight away downloaded a Spotify playlist with all the songs on and we were playing them all throughout the house the next day!
Another thing I loved about this play was the level of comedy. The jokes were really good - there wasn't too much comedy that it just got annoying but it stayed funny all the way through. The show had a wide range of ages in the audience and I liked the way they made it funny for all ages, normally it's just adult humour that none of the kids get or silly 'bum, fart, poo' jokes that are amusing for little children.
The cast in this were really talented and effective, I loved the way they got into their roles and really humanised the animals. I imagine it must be quite hard to act a character that isn't human, like an animal or alien or whatever else but all the cast took their character and played them realistically and well (or at least as realistically as you can get when your character is a talking animal!!)
Overall I really enjoyed this play and there was not one point I felt it was going on too long or it as getting a little boring which I normally find even in the best plays (or films for that matter!). If you can get tickets still I would whole-heartedly recommend it.
