Directed by: Sharon Watson
Rats are taking over Hamelin, eating everything in sight and frightening the citizens!
Nobody, including the greedy mayor, knows what to do. Even Duchess Dingaling is
at her wit’s end. Rattytatty, the pest control officer, admits defeat. Who should turn
up but an odd young gentleman who calls himself the Pied Piper? In return for getting
rid of the pests, he sets a fee of one thousand guilders. The town agrees. True to
his claim, the Piper disposes of the cheese nibblers. However, the townsfolk claim
they are too poor to pay. In retaliation, the Pied Piper leads the children from
the town and hides them within a magic mountain. The townsfolk realize their
error and search for the mysterious musician. The slap-happy characters range
from a silly Dancing Tutor, who creates a new dance called ’doing the Rat,’ to Old Widow
Whiskers, the wise rat, who’s too slow to follow the Piper. A simple set and funny
action make this show RATASTIC!
