Double bill of theatre for all the family in Daventry

The Wind and the Willows
The Wind and the Willows

A much loved children’s book and an original take forms part of two family theatre shows coming to Daventry.

Munckins and Monsters bring Back in Time for Breakfast and Wind in the Willows at the Saxon Suite of Daventry Leisure Centre.

The shows, being performed as part of Daventry Arts Festival, can be seen on Saturday June 18 and Sunday June 19 at 1.30pm.

The theatre group specialise in creating immersive theatre shows, that aim to both educate and entertain their audiences through using a variety of storytelling techniques including song, dance, puppetry, interactive sets, as well as having plenty of fun and adventure.

Back in Time for Breakfast follows the adventurous Millie, as she makes a wish on a shooting star to go on a journey across the planet.

Little does she know though that her wish will not only come true but it will change her life forever when she goes on adventures she could never of dreamt of.

Wind in the Willows is a brand new adaptation of Kenneth Grahame’s classic tale.

Join Mole, Ratty, Badger and their ever excitable friend Toad, as they go on adventures along the riverbank and through the countryside.

Not everything in the Wilde Wood is as it should be though. Soon they discover a terrible plot from the Chief Weasel to take Toad Hall for himself.

In order to stop him, they’ll have to work together to stop the villainous weasels from taking control.

Artistic director, Dale Forder, hopes that coming to Daventry this year will mark an annual visit to the town in future years.

He said: “Since founding the group, we’ve had great success at events such as Stratford-Upon-Avon Arts Festival and Rugby Festival of Culture and we are excited about performing at Daventry Arts Festival this year.”

Tickets for both events are available in person at Daventry Town Council or via phone from Rugby Visitor Centre on 01788 533217. They are £5 for a ticket and £18 for four.
