NMJC Theatre to Present The Wind in the Willows
9/28/2007 12:09:32 p.m. - Hobbs, NM. On October 11-14, New Mexico Junior College's Theatre Department will present The Wind in the Willows, a classic story for children of all ages, telling the story of Mr. Toad of Toad Hall.
Originally written by Kenneth Grahame, this adapted version by Joseph Baldwin tells the tale of Mr. Toad and his obsession with motor vehicles. His obsession is focused on driving motor vehicles - but not stopping them - which leads to wrecks, trouble with the law, and arrests.
Mr. Badger, Mr. Rat, and Mr. Mole, friends from the wild wood, try to intervene and help Mr. Toad get over his obsession, but to no avail; consequently, Mr. Toad finds himself imprisoned for 20 years. While in jail, Toad Hall is overtaken by weasels and stoats. The only thing that could save Toad Hall and its inhabitants would be the escape of Mr. Toad to come to the rescue.
The fall production of The Wind in the Willows will be presented at 8 pm on October 11, 12, and 13. A 2 pm Sunday matinee will be presented on October 14. Tickets are $8 for adults and $6 for students and seniors. For more ticket reservations or more information, call 492.2846.
