Sir Terry Pratchett's ingeniously upended tale of the Pied Piper, has a roving band of highly intelligent rats as its heroic protagonists. Matthew Holmes' script and songs capture the plot in a captivating musical for children to perform and everyone to enjoy.
Under the lazily, streetwise command of Maurice, a speaking cat, the rats prepare to pull their practiced scam on the town of Bad Blintz. But something's up and our heroes are scampering straight into someone else's scam - and it's not nice.
Perfect for upper primary school performances, there are parts small and large for rats - heroic, villainous and oppressed - for humans on the good side and the bad, and of course for a cat named Maurice.
The complete performance pack with its photocopiable script and piano vocal score includes everything you need for rehearsing and presenting the final show, plus there's full audio support on CD so you don't need to read a note of music.
To present a public performance of this musical you will need a performance licence. Simply email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01484 668 148 and request a Performance Licence Application Form.
