Photos and Story by James Hill
Beginning Friday, Feb. 21, PCC Theatre@Rock Creek presents the award-winning musical “The Wind in the Willows,” which is based on Kenneth Grahame’s timeless classic. Portland’s own award-winning composer Kurt Misar and writing partner Brad Beaver have adapted it into a two-act musical play. The production is recommended for everyone aged five and up.
The performances are at 7 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays, Feb. 21 through March 1 in The Forum Theater, Building 3. There will also be a matinee at 2 p.m., Saturday March 1. Tickets can be purchased with cash or check in the lobby of the theater – $10 for general admission, and $7 for students and seniors.
“The Wind in the Willows” opens with the animals enjoying a day on the river. However, the fragile peace of the riverbank village is soon destroyed by Toad’s desire to keep up with the latest thrill. Toad’s need for speed and adventure, takes him from boats to caravans to cars on the open road (poop! poop!) and eventually, a fight for the magnificent Toad Hall.
The box office opens one hour before curtain. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call (971) 722-7221.
