[Children's Musical]

This hugely successful musical for children has been performed worldwide - including several performances every year in the town square of Hamelin itself, an event which has become a major tourist attraction. Based on The Pied Piper Of Hamelin by Robert Browning, Rats! is a new look at the familiar story with memorable music and witty lyrics. The rats who plague Hamelin are punks and the Pied Piper has the charisma of a rock star! Ideal for both Middle and Secondary schools with a genuine showbiz feel which has guaranteed appeal for audiences of all ages. There are 15 modern songs including The Rat Race Rules, A Capital Fellow and Sing With The World.
