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 the world premiere hip hop musical, Pied Piper.
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 a microphone. Can this curious stranger help Hamelin to find its voice once more?
Pied Piper is a raucous musical re-imagining of a medieval fairy-tale. Featuring a hugely talented cast of beatboxers, musicians and special guest performances from the local community, get ready for an electrifying night of vocal wizardry for all the family.
Original performers and devisers: Conrad Murray, Kate Donnachie, Lakeisha Lynch-Stevens, Alex Hardie, Ananya Panwar, Aziza Amira Brown, David Bonnick Junior & Chris Maylor
Commissioned by Battersea Arts Centre, Gulbenkian Arts Centre and ARCADE.
Pied Piper is supported by Arts Council England with additional funds from The Christina Smith Foundation, The John S Cohen Foundation, The Leche Trust, The Royal Victoria Hall Foundation and Youth Music.
