Toad, Ratty, Badger and Mole are taking Moreton Bay College. but fear not, it's all in the name of high drama.

The school will stage the classic tale of The Wind in the Willows on May 8-9.

Drama and Dance director Kelly Redhead-Adelt said the play was written by Zoe Simmerman from the story by Kenneth Grahame, but the students had added a modern twist. Ms Redhead-Adelt said the piece was chosen because the humorous and touching tale of enduring friendship allowed students to showcase their impressive suite of talents.

"The students are loving being part of the production, from the cast who play a wide range of characters, to the art students who have been working on make-up designs and small props, to the fashion students who have designed animal head-dresses for many of the forest animals," she said. "They are all enjoying seeing the production come together". She said their show would have "something for everyone" to enjoy.

"There are some comic highlights between Toad and his 'trusty stead', Albert, then there's the beauty of the birds as they float across the stage on pointe shoes which is breathtaking, and not to forget the weasels - the bad guys - who are really quite silly and entertain us with their hilarious antics."

She said staging the play was more than just fun - it was an important part of the students' education. "Drama offers a range of learning experiences which will develop students' confidence, creativity, innovation and empathy, in addition to providing a supportive classroom environment which encourages the development of effective teamwork skills," she said.
