The Pied Viper

16th March 2001 at 00:00
Music with a message is the special feature of The Pied Viper, an hour-long musical suitable for pupils aged between 10 and 14.

The twist to this story is that Hamelin's hero is a secret drug dealer, leading the children to follow his beguiling promises. Twelve catchy songs tell what becomes a tagic story.

There are opportunities for dramatic improvisation and plenty of appropriate pretexts for discussing the consequences of drug use. The Pied Viper, published by Chester Music, (Teacher's Book amp; CD) costs pound;9.95 and a Pupil's Book with script costs pound;2.95.
