In the Willows

Wed 29 May – Sat 1 Jun 2019

With epic show tunes and killer beats, this classic story is brought popping and locking into the 21st century in an extraordinary new hip-hop musical. Featuring fast bikes, fierce moves and fabulous vocals, and starring the Olivier Award-winning Clive Rowe (Guys & DollsTracy Beaker) as Badger.

It’s Mole’s first day in ‘The Willows’. The kids look a bit rough. Surely Mr Badger will look out for her, while hip-hop cool girl Rattie, rich kid rapper Toad and street-dancing Otter teach her the ways of the Riverbank. But when Toad gets locked up for joyriding, the Weasel Clan break in and squat his pad, the Pool Hall. Now it’s only a matter of time before Chief Weasel reveals Mole’s dark secret…

After the overwhelming Bristol response to Jungle Book in 2017, award-winning Metta Theatre are back with a bold new take on this much-loved classic.
