Best Bits

Give in to the sway of hip-hop beats as this modern twist on the classic story pulls you under its spell – just look out for the rat catcher’s catchy tunes…

Get ready for an electrifying night of vocal wizardry for all the family; following the award-winning, five-star, smash-hit stage show and BBC film Frankenstein: How to Make a Monster, the BAC Beatbox Academy returns to the stage with brand new hip-hop musical Pied Piper, a raucous musical re-imagining of a medieval fairy tale.

It’s the eve of the mayoral election, and the kids of Hamelin aren’t happy. The mayor and owner of the local pie factory has imposed a music ban, and to make matters worse, there’s a serious rat problem.

But there have been whispers of a mysterious rat catcher in town: sometimes he plays a pipe, sometimes he uses a microphone. Can this curious stranger help Hamelin to find its voice once more?
Featuring a hugely talented cast of beatboxers, musicians and special guest performances from the local community, this show has already has an Offie (Off West End) Award in tow (Theatre for Young Audiences: Performance category).
