The Mad Adventures of Mr. Toad at Rome theater
Rome Community Theater presents “The Mad Adventures of Mr. Toad” at 7:30 p.m., Aug. 7-8 and 2:30 p.m., Aug. 9 at 8911 Turin Road (Route 26N) north of the city of Rome. A children’s production of an eccentric but likeable Toad of Toad Hall, given to “crazes” has a problem. He is obsessed with motorcars and ends up crashing them everywhere he goes. Despite the sincere efforts of his dear friends Badger, Rat and Mole, Toad’s madness gets the best of him and he ends up in prison for reckless driving after a hysterical episode with the judge.
Toad’s enemies, the weasels couldn’t be happier to have him behind bars as they plot to overtake Toad’s estate. You will be entertained when the weasels sing their wickedly deviant song, “The Good Life” as they plan to take over Toad Hall. Meanwhile, the jailer’s daughter, Polly helps Toad escape prison dressed as a washerwoman. Yet another mad cap scene ensues when Toad finally meets up with his friends again, and they devise a clever scheme to recapture Toad Hall from the weasels. With an exciting and humorous musical score featuring songs such as “A Danger to Society,” “Down with Toad,” and “Quiet Drive in the Country,” this charming musical adaptation has been written for children of all ages. The play is directed by Kristin Impicciatore.
For reservations, call 338-5006. Tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for children.
