Two local churches, Pontiac High School and Valley Heritage Radio were recently infested with all manner of rodent and one amphibian with a penchant for dangerous driving, as the Pontiac Community Players (PCP) performed their Christmas radio play last week.
Celebrating community and the importance of friendship, the PCP’s performance of the English literature classic The Wind in the Willows had audiences cheering, laughing and clapping all the way through, as local actors portrayed the timeless characters onstage.
The plot follows the adventures of Rat, Mole and Mr. Toad as they go about life on the riverbank. While Rat and Mole are near inseparable, seeking out excitement in their everyday lives, they get more than they bargain for when they begin to hang out with Mr. Toad, a wealthy, thrill-seeking character always looking for more.
