Product Description

The dramatic story, inspired by the legendary Pied Piper of Hamelin, of a drug dealer in modern-day Hamelyn Town, this lively musical offers a powerful classroom resource to support Drug Education projects.

Tommy Piper, the Mayor’s son, comes down from university and starts pushing drugs outside Hamelyn School. Tempted, some of the children try the drugs with disastrous results. They imagine Tommy’s long red-and-yellow-striped scarf as a viper, which they follow in a crazy dance. A terrible accident puts an end to that and painful lessons will have to be learnt.

Suitable for key stages 3-4 (ages 11-16). Cross curricular aspects include social education, citizenship, science, music, dance, drama, art and design.
