Pied Piper




A Battersea Arts Centre, Beatbox Academy & rODIUM Co-Production
Conceived, written and co-directed by Conrad Murray
Presented in Bridlington by ARCADE

Following the award winning, five star smash hit stage show and BBC film, Frankenstein: How to Make a Monster, the BAC Beatbox Academy comes to Bridlington Spa 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 reimagining of a medieval fairytale. Featuring a hugely talented cast of beatboxers, musicians and special guest performances from the local Bridlington community, get ready for an electrifying night of vocal wizardry for all the family.
