Musical about Drug Abuse Awareness

Remember Robert Browning’s tragic poem, The Pied Piper of Hamelin? Well, in this musical version, the problem isn’t rats, it’s drugs. But the Mayor is still preoccupied with his own wheeler dealing to listen to complaints from locals about the lack of resources for education and play spaces for kids. And he certainly isn’t aware that his own son, Tommy is drug dealing outside the school gates. When some pupils are tempted to try Tommy’s pretty pills, they start hallucinating and behaving like crazy rats. Sadly, it takes a tragic motorway accident for vital lessons to be learnt.

'The Pied Viper' is a resource for Drug prevention projects in primary and secondary schools - Keystages 3 and 4.
