The Missoula Children’s Theatre of Montana stages the story of Hamelin Town today at 7 p.m. and Saturday at
1 p.m. in the Port Townsend High School auditorium, 1500 Van Ness.
Tickets will be $5 for children and $10 for adults at Quimper Sound, 230 Taylor St., at the Port Townsend Food Co-op, 414 Kearney St., and at the school auditorium door before the show.
“The Pied Piper” begins when ravenous rats begin to overwhelm the town.
Sara, an orphan girl, and the other townspeople turn to the mayor of Hamelin and his council, who then call on the Pied Piper to save them.
The mayor’s son and daughter, played by Sam Carlson and Olivia Morningstar, also join in the endeavor.
But the town is unable to pay the Piper — and the story takes an interesting turn.
This Missoula Children’s Theatre production is cosponsored by OPEPO, the Port Townsend School District’s Optional Education Program.
