Pied Piper returns to save the day

2015-06-25 14:45

IF you are looking for ways to entertain the little ones over the holidays then make a date to see the AUC’s (Actors Unemployed Company) The Pied Piper of Hamelin at the Rhumbelow Theatre in Umbilo.

Adapted for the stage from the Robert Browning version of the classic tale by Marc Kay, and directed by Clinton Small, the show captures the very essence of this wonderful story with all the characters from the original story … and a few that aren’t! Performers will race about the stage enacting one of their favourite stories, filled with magic, comedy, shadow puppets, audience interaction … and rats!

Showtimes are 10 am on June 27 and 30, 2 pm on June 28, 10 am on July 1, 3, 4, 7, 8, 10, 11, 14, 15, 17 and 18, and at 2 pm on July 2, 5, 9, 12, 16 and 19.

After the show, a short workshop will be held as an introduction to Shadow Puppet Theatre (run by the performers, and at no extra cost)

Snacks and juices will be on sale.

Tickets are R60 at Computicket, Ailsa at 083 250 2690 or e-mail
