About the Show Less...

The dark tale of one man, his pipe and the consequences of a broken promise that will delight and frighten rats, brats and families everywhere. Read More >

ratcatcher of hamelin bac nov 05 120
Hamelin is a fairly average town, where everyday people do everyday things. But today they have a problem, or rather many small, furry, problems in the form of an invasion of rats. When an outsider offers to rid them of their squeaking adversaries, the townspeople are only too happy to accept. When it comes to their side of the bargain, however, they are less than willing.

BAC regulars, Cartoon de Salvo, give the sinister story an amusing and energetic twist, creating a show for everyone from eight to eighty-eight.

Unlike film, theatre doesn't have an official age classification organisation. That means all age recommendations are subjective and should be treated as guidelines unless otherwise stated. With this in mind, we ask you to use your judgement in regards to a show’s suitability prior to purchase. However, we are more than happy to help you make a decision.
