Mr. Toad is an eccentric but likable chap given to “crazes.” His latest craze involves motorcars. Unfortunately, he smashes them up as fast as he gets them. He even steals one for a wild ride over the countryside and ends up in prison! While imprisoned, his home is trashed and taken over by the weasels, but after serving his time, Mr. Toad and friends devise a clever scheme to recapture his home and save the day!

With a cast of 37 Beck Center students ages 6 to 19, this family-friendly production is directed by Russel Stich. “Working with this talented young cast has been not only a great experience for me, but for the students as well. We are having a lot of fun exploring the humor in this classic story,” commented Stich. “There is something for everyone: silly characters, slapstick comedy and dry British wit.”
