Morning and afternoon performances are scheduled for area elementary school groups, and the evening shows are open to the general public. This short play in eleven scenes is freely adapted by Moses Goldberg from the book by Kenneth Grahame. In this animal fantasy, Toad is the rich playboy of the animal kingdom. His current enthusiasm is motor cars, which he embraces passionately without the formality of learning to drive. After several narrow shaves, his friends, Rat, Mole, and Badger, ground him for his own safety at his home, Toad hall. He manages to elude them and appropriates a police car, which lands him in jail. In his absence, the weasels take over Toad hall, and Toad returns to find his elegant mansion in shambles. Toad's friends try to drive the weasels out and restore Toad to his senses, but by that time he has acquired a new passion - airplanes!
