What do you do when your town is overrun by an infestation of rats? Easy, call the Pied Piper! 
 
Take a trip to National Children’s Theatre (NCT) as they perform an original musical adaptation of the well-known, well loved, and classic Robert Browning poem The Pied Piper of Hamelin town. 
 
It is the story of the 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.
 
Skillfully adapted for the stage by Renos Nicos Spanoudes and Sarah Barlin, this fantastic, humorous adventure will transports 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 learnt.
 
The talented versatile cast includes: Sibusiso Nhlapo Ferguson, Gamelihle Bovana, Danny Meaker, Kopano Tshabalala Gugu Dhlamini and children from NCT workshops.  
The creative team includes Sets Stan Knights and Costumes Sarah Roberts, Musical Director Dale Scheepers, Choreography Sibusiso Nhlapo, and Lighting Jane Gosnell.
With the Winter Holidays fast approaching, give your children the chance to connect with participative theatre at its best – its an experience to be enjoyed by the whole family.
