Pied Piper, The Musical

March 2005 Masque Unit Production

Those rats were taking over Hamelin, and nobody, including the greedy mayor, knew what to do. Even Duchess Dingaling was at her wit's end. Rattytatty, the pest control officer, admitted defeat. Just when things couldn't get any worse, an odd young gentleman who called himself the Pied Piper, showed up. The town agreed to pay a fee for the Pied Piper to get rid of the pests, so he disposed of the cheese nibblers, as promised. However, the townsfolk claimed they were too poor to pay! In retaliation, the Pied Piper led the children from the town and hid them within a magic mountain. The townsfolk quickly realized the error of their ways and searched for the mysterious musician. The slaphappy characters ranged from Old Widow Whiskers, the wise rat who was too slow to follow the Piper, to a silly Dancing Tutor, who created a new dance called "Doing the Rat."
