The full cast of the Christmas production of The Wind in the Willows has been announced ahead of the show’s run at London’s Vaudeville Theatre.

WIND IN THE WILLOWS,

The Wind in the Willows is playing at London’s Vaudeville Theatre this Christmas. JOHAN PERSSON

Martin Harvey will take on the role of Ratty, and Cris Penfold will play Toad. Ira Mandela Siobhan will play Badger, and Sonya Cullingford will play Mole. Other members of the company include Ewan Wardrop, Kayleigh Gore, Jay Webb, Alastair Postlewaite, Jessica Ellen, Rachael Mossom, Jo Meredith and Aron Wild.

They join Alan Titchmarsh, who makes his West End debut as the play’s narrator. Based on Kenneth Grahame’s timeless classic, the adventures of four woodland friends are retold through dance, song, music and puppetry. From a dusty old attic a wonderful tale unfolds and the peaceful riverbank world is rocked by a speeding car, a racing train and criminal deeds cooked up in the Wild Wood. Recommended for children aged five and over, the play will run at London’s Vaudeville Theatre from November 26 to Saturday, January 17, 2015.
