Come and join the Jacksonville High School Drama Department on December 6 and 7 for its performance of Kenneth Grahame’s Wind in the Willows adapted for the stage by Joseph Baldwin. This whimsical and imaginative retelling of the classic children’s book, Toad’s Wild Ride is a classic that the whole family will enjoy. Directed by JHS Drama Department’s seniors, Devin Carter, Katie Cline, Ariel Hosmer, Dylan Hurst, and Alyce Sparrowhawk, this delightful story will thrill children and adults alike.

The famous English country gentleman, Mr. Toad (played by Devin Carter) of Toad Hall, sees his first motor car and promptly falls uncontrollably in love with motoring, so he buys a car which he crashes. Another car is bought, followed by another crash, and another, and another. For, once at the throttle, Toad in his goggles and duster is a man possessed. His friends Mrs. Otter (Katie Cline), Mr. Badger (Noah Davis), Mr. Rat (Eric Cline) and Mr. Mole (Dylan Hurst), try to stop him. They seize his checkbook, but Toad just buys on credit and cracks up again. Soon Toad is ruled off the road. Then he steals a car! For this he’s sent to jail for 20 years, but soon he’s free again, for the jailer’s daughter adores Toad for his charm and dash, and helps him escape dressed as a washerwomen.

A wildly entertaining, must see show! You do not want to miss out on this one! Performances are on December 6 and 7 at 7 p.m. in the Jacksonville High School auditorium. Tickets are $7. Don’t miss out on this wonderful performances filled with many talented performers.
