STC's Little-To-Big Summer Production: "THE PIED PIPER OF HAMELIN"

Make sure to mark your calendars for the summer performance featuring seasoned community theater actors with several of our talented youth performers, sure to warm the hearts of young and old alike! 

This energetic version of the classic tale is dramatized by Tim Wright, award-winning playwright, screenwriter, television writer, independent filmmaker and educator. In this telling, the rats and the humans wage political and social war against each other and anyone who contradicts them. The Piper, a former resident of the orphans' home, comes back to get his due. When the mayor refuses to pay him for ridding the town of rats, the piper sets a daze on the adults and pipes away the children. Crippled Franz returns, healed from his limp, with news that the children are happier than ever, tucked safely away inside the mountain. The adults recognize their folly as the piper delivers a final moral narrative. Humor, action and conflict carry this story of betrayal and simple friendship with the reminder that a promise is a promise.
