The other officials are jealous of Daniel. They trick Darius into signing a law making it illegal to pray to any God except him. Daniel continues to pray to his own God, and Darius sadly has to have him arrested and thrown into the lions' den. Darius is upset by this and he cannot eat, sleep or be entertained by his exotic dancers. However, God protects Daniel and the lions do not harm him.

'Just Call me the Pied Piper' is a sure fire hit play for a large cast age 5-11 by Freddie Green. Approx 45 min. Lovely original songs supplied as vocal tracks and backing tracks, (no musical ability needed). Ideal for any time of year. Normal retail price £42.50. Price includes FREE school performance licence. 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!
