A new musical with soaring vocals and spectacular street dance, starring Olivier Award winner Clive Rowe. 


Mole’s first day in ‘The Willows’. Her classmates look a bit scary. Surely Mr Badger will look out for her, as streetwise Rattie, rich kid Toad and cheeky Otter teach her the ways of The Riverbank. But when Toad gets locked up for joyriding, the Weasel Clan break into his (lily)pad. It's now only a matter of time before Chief Weasel reveals Mole’s dark secret...


This classic story is brought leaping into the twenty first century. Featuring ballads, beats and backflips this fresh new musical is fun for the whole family. 

★★★★ “Kenneth Grahame meets Hamilton...brilliantly original and delightfully funny… irresistible”  Daily Mail
