School Holidays - interactive children's theatre

After the recent success of 'Cinderella goes Disco' and two "sold-out" performances of 'Rumplestiltskin', Jally Productions will present their latest offering 'The Pied Piper' during the school holidays in July to three council venues.

Local award-winning company Jally Productions provides quality "interactive" theatre for children, encouraging their involvement in the play by taking up a variety of roles, sparking and developing children's interest in theatre and acting.

The Pied Piper:

Once upon a time in a land far away, was a town called Hamelin. While the town was suffering from a rat infestation, when a man dressed in 'pied' appearance, claiming to be a rat-catcher, promised the townspeople a solution to their problem. The Mayor, in turn promised to pay him for the removal of the rats. The Pied Piper played a musical pipe to lure the rats out of the village and demanded a large sum of money for his services. The mayor refused and the Piper left the village, very upset and seeking revenge. Of course we can't give away too much but in Jally Production's modern version of the traditional story the children are in for a great fun day with the Pied Piper.

A colourful cast of characters includes: Mayor Hoffman, a totally incompetent, but well meaning official, Veronica, the delightful school teacher of Hamelin and her daughter, Gretel plus of course The Pied Piper and his very clever assistant, Trudy, who has a few tricks of her own to share. In this delightful participation play, children become villagers, school children and those pesky rats.

Jally Productions have once again assembled a fine cast of Sunshine Coast actors for this favourite children's classic including Tim Page, Alli Pope and Matt Dunstan. Make sure you hang around after the show to meet your favourite characters and don't forget to bring your camera ...!!

The magic created is incredible!
The cast will mingle with the audience after the show!
