A 35-strong cast served up an Easter treat at Sheringham Little Theatre with the musical version of Kenneth Grahame's timeless tale of Mr Toad and his countryside friends.

The show, which ran April 16 to 20 was by the venue's youth musical theatre group.

Theatre marketing manager, Steve Banks said: “Taking on this show was enormously ambitious, but this amazing cast and crew have smashed it. It proves that, with dedication and passion, great things are possible.”

Key roles included James Shorten as Toad, Ayrelia O'Leary-Leeson as Ratty, Rosa Cormack as Badger and Caius Law as Mole.
