Mr. Badger, in the guise of storyteller, presents a delightful performance of Kenneth Grahame’s classic story ‘The Wind In The Willows’.

Mr. Badger in his own kindly way, tells the story of Mr. Toad, Ratty and Mole and their adventures on the Riverbank, the Open Road, the Wild Wood and Toad Hall. A unique storytelling performance which celebrates the joys of friendship and the natural world.

This intimate performance has toured to over 100 libraries, public gardens, festivals and schools across four states of Australia. The performance delights both youngster and satisfies devotees of Grahame’s much-loved book.

The script remains true to the original and retains much of the language from the book. The presentation style harks back to bygone era with simple props and without technical wizardry - as such it stimulates young imaginations and inspires children to read the classic work on which it is based. With beautiful, delicate scenic models this unique performance is best suited to intimate venues which allow close contact between storyteller and audience.

Mr. Badger provides educational value including listening & understanding stories, following narrative, comprehension of unfamiliar words, promotes reading & stimulates imagination.

A Teachers Resource Kit is provided in advance and promotional materials (posters, media release etc.) are provided to venues prior to performances. Follow the link to download the Resource Kit here: Mr. Badger Teacher's Resource Kit.pdf
