‘THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS'
7 p.m., Arkansas Arts Center. $11-$14.
In its final production of the season, the Arkansas Arts Center's Children's Theatre takes on a stage adaptation of Kenneth Grahame's children's classic. It's a fitting time for a story dedicated, in part, to “simply messing about in boats” and picnicking and lazing along the riverbank. At least, that's Ratty, Badger and Mole's idea of a good time. But then the irascible Mr. Toad comes onto the scene. His obsession with speedy modes of transportation runs in direct proportion to his ineptness as a driver. Look out for crashes and clashes and a standoff, between Mr. Toad and his friends and the stoats and weasels who try to take over Toad Hall. The play runs through May 17.
