Fantasy. By Joseph Baldwin. Based on the book for children by Kenneth Grahame.
Cast: 17 people. The famous English gentlemen, Mr. Toad of Toad Hall, sees his first motor car and promptly falls uncontrollably in love with motoring, so he buys a car which he then 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. Soon he is ruled off the road. Then he steals a car. For this he's sent to jail for 20 years. While there, he learns that Weasels have taken over his old family home and all his friends have been thrown out. But the jailor's daughter adores Toad for his charm and dash and she helps him escape. In an exciting climax, Toad, Ratty, Badger and Mole retake Toad Hall by storm. Multiple simple sets.
