MR TOAD who lives in Toad Hall was up to his old tricks again during a run of live theatre performances by Coleg Llandrillo’s performing arts students.

The players spent months putting together the heart warming children’s tale of Toad of Toad Hall. The evening’s entertainment was performed by members of the college’s company, Bearfoot Productions, at the college’s Theatr Alwyn.

Audiences became acquainted with favourite childhood friends, Toad, Badger, Ratty and Mole, as the faced new challenges and trials on their journey to save Toad Hall.

Jon Crowther, lecturer in Performing & Production Arts at Coleg Llandrillo, said: “Toad of Toad Hall was adapted by our students into a delightful play filled with excitement and adventure, which captured the all important message of friendship. Toad of Toad Hall is a play like no other.”

Teddy Jones, aged 18 from Abergele, played the lead role of Toad, he said: “The opening night was amazing; we got all the laughs we were hoping for. The weeks of preparation paid off, the feedback has been incredible. It was a delight to bring an old children’s classic to a modern day audience.”

The next production by the student company will be the smash hit musical Rock of Ages, which will be staged at Theatr Colwyn on June 13, 14 and 15.
