Lyrics by Daven Tillinghast, Kenneth Grahame, Andrew Gordon and Bruce Whitney

Toad is always keen to take on the latest fad, but his new obsession with motor-cars might lead to ruin.  Can loyal Mole, clever Rat and stalwart Badger save Toad from himself, and take back Toad Hall from the weasels of the Wild Wood?

An original, musical adaptation of Kenneth Grahame’s classic tale.  The Wind in the Willows has everything you could want in family entertainment: a story full of adventure and humor, original songs and music score, and above all, a reminder of the enduring power of friendship.

Looking for a great local show to take your kids or grandkids to this month? Or to take your inner child? This would be it. – Alec Clayton, South Sound Arts

The best play I’ve ever saw! – Enthusiastic audience member

The Wind in the Willows is published by Northwest Playwright’s Alliance & Gwylam Publishing.

Cinder Edna

A new musical based on the book by Ellen Jackson

Book by Ted Ryle. Music and Lyrics by Ted Ryle, Miriam Sterlin, and Mandy Ryle.

Cinder Edna happens to live next door to the famous girl you have probably of: Cinderella. Cinderella and Cinder Edna, who both live with cruel stepmothers and stepsisters, have different approaches to life. Cinder Edna has better things to do than sit in the ashes and feel sorry for herself. Also, she doesn’t believe in Fairy Godmothers, so she saves her money to put a dress on layaway, just in case a special occasion should arise. She takes the bus to the ball AND she wears comfortable shoes. Although each ‘Cinder’ ends up with the prince of her dreams, one is a great deal happier than the other.

This new musical version of Ellen Jackson’s celebration of the classic fairy tale, tuna casserole, and making your own luck was a sold-out success in its first production in Olympia, Washington, and a darling of the critics:

“What a feat! What a coup!…See it now while you can. You’ll love it.” – Alec Clayton, South Sound Arts

“I loved Cinder Edna’s collegiate vocabulary, which never confused young audience members. I enjoyed this show so deeply…I hope it breaks out nationwide.” – Christian Carvajal, The Weekly Volcano/NW Military.com

Subsequent to the original production, book writer Ted Ryle created a shorter, one act version of Cinder Edna, suitable for school performances and touring companies.

During the world-premiere production of Cinder Edna, the original cast was recorded over the course of three performances. This is the original soundtrack to this wonderful new musical!
