St Laurence’s overrun with rats

THERE’S entertainment about to hit a Leongatha school in plague proportions.
One hundred rats will help make up the 220 strong cast performing in St Laurence’s production of The Pied Piper, the famous story set several hundred years ago in Germany.
Although there are only 30 speaking parts, at some point all 220 of the school’s students will appear on stage.
Grade 5 student Holly Belsar plays the Pied Piper and the Mayor of Hamelin is played by Grade 4 student Liam Smart.
The Preps, Grade 1 and 2 students star as rats in the production.
Rehearsals for the musical production have been taking place for several weeks including in the school holidays.
Production manager, Bronwyn Kent, said the children really “deserve recognition” for their efforts in this production.
A happy twist has been devised for the customary grim ending to this folk tale about revenge.
The production will be staged in the auditorium at the school for one performance only on October 17, and admission is by gold coin donation.
The show runs for around one hour from 7pm.

Play on: from left, Holly Belsar as the Pied Piper, Patrick Johnson as one of the councillors of Hamelin, Audrey Lamers as the mayor’s wife and baker, Jesseme Jarvis.
