The Pied Piper of Hamelin

The Pied Piper of Hamelin

3 - 8
year olds

designed, devised and performed by Melvyn Rawlinson

" ....... and then one night when the stars where bright a stranger
came down to old Hamelin town"

And so begins one of the best loved children's stories of all time!

When the Pied Piper plays his tune, the rats run, the greedy mayor rubs his hands, the children dance and the magic begins.

Performed with mechanical toys, clockwork boxes, glove and shadow puppets, gentle music and lighting.

The Pied Piper is charming show especially written for children under 8 and their families and is a delightful and colourful introduction to theatre.
