This charmingly upbeat play has been reimagined by local writer, producer, and Emmy Award winner Robert Thomas Noll. The Rat Commander is leading his troops into Hamelin. Their mission: to scare the people witless and eat every scrap of food there is! The invasion is so terrifically successful that the citizens are soon desperate. Suddenly, a Pied Piper arrives, promising a solution. The Mayor agrees to his price, but when the time comes to pay the Piper, he refuses. This time, the children of the town follow the Piper's tune.

With a cast of 65 Beck Center students ages 6 to 19, this family-friendly production is directed by Russ Stich. "This is a fun script with lots of opportunities for comedic surprises,” commented Stich. “With a cast of 65, you can expect plenty of mischief and mayhem from the rats as they bring chaos into the lives of the citizens of Hamelin."
