The Pied Piper of Hamelin is a fantastic and humorous adventure that will transport you into a world of song and dance, mystery and make-believe, love and laughter.
It’s a story that will warm your heart during the cold winter school holidays. However, the story is not all froth and bubble –there are a few good lessons to be learned.
It is the story of an arrogant politician Mr Mayor who really doesn’t care about the town and the hard-working people who live and work there. He is a greedy man who earns a ridiculously high salary which he spends on overseas trips, golfing and beautiful things. He is a tyrant but meets his match when in desperation he hires a strange piper to rid the town of rats. Unfortunately for him, he doesn’t want to pay the piper for his services. See the show and find out how the piper retaliates.
