The Legend of The Pied Piper
Show Page: The Pied Piper
Keep your promises, avoid rats, and always exercise caution around mysterious pipers
Our storyline centres around the village of Hamelin. The German town is overrun with rats. No one knows what to do and the Mayor, has no idea how to handle the situation. Enter a piper dressed in multicoloured clothing (pied) with a magic flute who promises to rid the town of rats for a price.
The shady Mayor agrees to the price and then decides to cheat the Pied Piper once the rats have been enticed away and pay him nothing. When the Pied Piper threatens to take away the children in retribution, the Villagers turn into a vengeful mob with shouts of “Lock him up, lock him up.”
The Pied Piper escapes from prison, and lures the children away. The Villagers are distraught. Two townspeople of good character counsel the Villagers against using cheating ways, and offer to try to find the missing children. They search in the forest, find the Pied Piper, promise to pay him what he is owed, and all is forgiven. The Mayor is removed from office as a bad influence.
There is also a sub-plot of the machinations of a Widow, new to town who takes a fancy to the Assistant Mayor – who is not interested; but persistence can pay off!
Catherine Morrison, the writer and director of Metro’s new musical “The Pied Piper” has long felt that lower mainland audiences needed something over the Spring Break period, so our new musical was born.
