AT LAST, A MODERN PURE-PANTOMIME
RE-TELLING OF THIS CLASSIC STORY,
FULL OF RATTY FUN!

Fancy a less commonly performed pantomime, but still with the appeal of a famous, traditional title?  Then this cracking new version of the Germanic tale could be just what you're looking for!  True to its roots in folklore, but packed full of up-to-date comedy, this is "much more of a panto" than most other versions.

Sour-Kraut (the witch) and Rat-Worst (the chief rat) battle it out against Fairy Strudel and a host of comical characters, including Dame Helga, the local sausage maker.  Some unusual scenes include Helga’s pig farm and a hilarious sausage cooking routine. 

There's plenty for the Chorus and Dancers to get their teeth into, particularly the junior members, who are piglets in one scene and also get to play the rats and the young townsfolk, who are spirited away by the Piper.  What's more, most groups will be pleased to hear that very few men are required among the principals.

Can be staged with just 3 main sets, but there’s ample scope for the more ambitious.
