THATCHER, AZ—Eastern Arizona College’s Children’s Theatre is pleased to present The Adventures of Mr. Toad at the Activities Center – Lee Little Theater from October 25-29, 2016.
Two casts, which will feature actors between the ages of 4 and 10 from throughout the Gila Valley, will perform – Cast One on October 25 and 27, at 7:30 p.m., and October 29, at 1 p.m., and Cast Two on October 26 and 28, at 7:30 p.m., and October 29, at 5 p.m.
The Adventures of Mr. Toad is a fun-filled musical adaptation of Kenneth Grahame’s “The Wind in the Willows,” which relates the fall and rise of the impulsive Mr. Toad through a series of daring adventures. The invaluable support of his riverside chums helps to bring about a joyous conclusion.
“This is a great play to do with the younger actors,” says Penny Whetten, the play’s director. “It’s fun to perform and has a wonderful message for kids of all ages.”
Admission to the musical is $3 per person. Full-time EAC students are admitted free with their Student ID. Tickets are available at the EAC Ticket Office at (928) 428-8228 and at the door.
