Course Description

This year long musical theatre project for children between 7 -11 culminates in a performance of the entertaining musical

The Pied Piper – A children's musical by Ruth Kenward and Nick Perrin

One of the few versions of the Pied Piper to feature a happy ending, this musical is full of humour and colourful characters, is fast-moving and engaging but also explores important universal themes.

Rats have taken over Hamelin, led by bossy Big Cheese! Grumpy street cleaner Mr Brümhandel fights a losing battle to keep the town clean while the people of Hamelin are too lazy to take responsibility for their own mess and dirt. Meanwhile, the Mayor and his incompetent sidekicks are more interested in lining their pockets than doing their jobs.
