A charming world of companionship, carefree boating and delicious picnicking opens up for the irrepressible Mr Toad and his companions, the kind-hearted Ratty and brave Badger, in Kenneth Grahame's wonderful classic story The Wind in the Willows.
It is 1936 and the world is changing fast; motorcars are more powerful, swing is the latest music craze and the old class system is breaking down.
Mr Toad's reckless living and extravagance leads to the loss of his beloved home, and the four friends go into battle to regain Toad Hall.
Will they overcome the barbaric stoats and weasels, will Mr Toad see the error of his ways and can friendship conquer all?
The Wind in the Willows is this year's Christmas show at The Brewhouse, Taunton, and comes from the same creative team behind Alice In Wonderland, The Lion The Witch And The Wardrobe, When Santa Fell To Earth and A Christmas Carol.
Filled with music, humour and special effects, this much-loved story will enchant all ages.
"Believe me, my young friend," Ratty tells Mole dreamily, "there is nothing, absolutely nothing, half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats."
The Wind in the Willows opens today and continues until January 5. Box office: 01823 283244.
