September to October
THE PIED PIPER
adapted by Terry Ryan
The Pied Piper, adapted by puppeteer Terry Ryan, is a contemporary retelling of a magical tale, set in an Australian wheat town where good rains have broken the drought and brought prosperity at last - and then rats! The leaders of the ratpack, Matty, Ratty and Patty and their horde of rodent mates cause chaos and the Mayor's reward of $50,000 attracts some hilariously dubious characters - Scientist Sam, Rita the Rat-trapper and Bobby the Boxing Cat, but it is the mysterious Pied Piper who saves the town!
The production offers plenty of opportunities for children to participate and after the show they can meet the actors and learn a little bit more about the enchanting world of theatre.
