The Pied Piper


Bolsover Drama Group present The Pied Piper – at last, a modern pure pantomime re-telling of this classic story and full of ratty fun.

Staying true to its roots in folklore but packed full of comedy this is a cracking new version of the Germanic tale of the wandering minstrel hired by the village to rid them of the rats after the two bungling rat catchers Blatter and Splatter fail to rid the village of them.

Sour-Kraut (the witch) and Rat-Worst (the chief rat) battle it out against Fairy Strudel and a host of comical characters, amongst them Dame Helga, the local sausage maker, including a hilarious sausage cooking routine and much, much, more.

The Pied Piper – an original pantomime by award winning author Alan Frayn.
