The Story

A sophisticated musical of whimsy, fantasy and wit. Eustace is leaving for university, rushing pell-mell into adulthood. Gathered in Grandmother’s Victorian attic for one last fling at storytelling, Eustace and his cousins act out The Wind in the Willows, and in the midst of thier play, unexpectedly discover what growing up really means. This fanciful new musical captures the imagination in all of us.
