A full cast audio adaptation of Kenneth Grahame’s classic tale of friendship and adventure, with an original script and music.
Based on the highly successful stage adaptation created in 2012, this is a professionally produced, full cast audio recording, complete with sound effects and original music. This production was made possible by the generous contributions of many supporters.
Following the world premiere stage production in 2012, we knew we weren’t finished telling our version of this classic tale. We had always hoped to create an audio adaptation of the story, using the same script, music and performers as in the original production.
In addition, we were able to add material back to the story script that had to be cut for the stage production due to time considerations. This material includes two entire chapters from Grahame’s book – “Home Sweet Home” and “Wayfarers All.”
Daven Tillinghast and Bruce Whitney created two new songs for the audio adaptation. We also engaged the services of veteran sound engineer John Manini to create a professional, high quality product.
The audio recording is our way of keeping alive this telling of Grahame’s wonderful, moving, funny and exciting tale of Rat, Mole, Badger and Rat.
