(Taken from http://www.uua.org/ ) Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religion that embraces theological diversity; we welcome different beliefs and affirm the inherent worth and dignity of every person. Working for justice in our world is a principal way for Unitarian Universalists to express their faith.

The Mad Adventures of Mr Toad

Rome Community Theater

Based on Kenneth Grahame’s Wind in the Willows, This musical madcap production will have all the characters children will enjoy; Mr. Toad, Badger, Rat, Mole and the weasels. Director Kirstin Impicciatore says that this production has numerous scenes with exciting and humorous musical numbers that will charm its audiences. Join Mr. Toad on his musical mad adventures-it’s a smashing hit in more ways than one! This is a delightful, upbeat version of Kenneth Grahame’s ever-popular Wind in the Willows. Our 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 his 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’ll be thoroughly 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 madcap 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 "A Quiet Drive in the Country," this charming musical adaptation has been written specifically for simple production, with an extremely flexible cast and many great, small roles. Let the music and magic of Mr. Toad take you and your audience on a wild ride.

They consolidated into the Unitarian Universalist Association in 1961. (Taken from http://www.uua.org/ ) Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religion that embraces theological diversity; we welcome different beliefs and affirm the inherent worth and dignity of every person. Working for justice in our world is a principal way for Unitarian Universalists to express their faith. Unitarian Universalists have a rich religious community withSunday and holiday services and life passage celebrations.

Unitarian Universalism is a caring, open-minded religion that encourages seekers to follow their own spiritual paths. Our community welcomes new members and draws on many religious sources, welcoming people with different beliefs. We are united by shared values, not by creed or dogma. Unitarian Universalism combines two traditions: the Universalists, who organized in 1793, and the Unitarians, who organized in 1825. They consolidated into the Unitarian Universalist Association in 1961. (Taken from http://www.uua.org/ ) Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religion that embraces theological diversity; we welcome different beliefs and affirm the inherent worth and dignity of every person. Working for justice in our world is a principal way for Unitarian Universalists to express their faith. Unitarian Universalists have a rich religious community withSunday and holiday services and life passage celebrations.
