The play begins with colourful action in the market square, but it quickly becomes apparent that all is not well in Hamelin. Where there is grain, there are rats! The Pied Piper arrives and agrees to rid the town of the rats, and the mayor promises him a generous payment plus his daughter’s hand in marriage. The Piper charms the rats away but, on completion of the task, the mayor refuses to keep his promises. In a rage, the Piper charms away the children of Hamelin to a better place in the mountains where people always keep their promises. Hamelin becomes a sad lonely place.
Two endings: the traditional ending or the happier ending where the problems are all resolved and a magnificent wedding ends the show!
