When the the prosperous town of Hamelin is suddenly overrun with rodents, can a mysterious stranger lure the pests away with only a simple song?

"Children, adults, and everyone in between will delight in this stupendous marionette version of the classic fairy tale…The visual treats are boundless, beginning with the set itself which is a marvel of engineering...The high-caliber production also includes beautiful operatic interludes...With hauntingly beautiful melodies, spellbinding visual scenery and lighting effects, and hundreds of marionettes, you will cheerfully fall under the spell and willingly follow 'The Pied Piper.'"

Absorbing, Enchanting, Masterful, Entertaining, Fun

See it if you would like to see or have never seen an old-fashioned marionette show. Very talented marionettists; child-friendly.

Don't see it if being around a lot of kids bother you; you don't like marionettes and hate make believe.
