The town of Hamelin has a rat problem, and there's only one person who can help! CactusHead Puppets brings the story of the Pied Piper to life in this kid-friendly comedic adaptation of the traditional folktale. Not only does the town find a musical solution to pest control, but the kids of Hamelin make a new friend and teach the grownups a lesson about generosity. This production features multiple puppetry styles, a silly hat contest, and plenty of dancing rats!
About the Artists
CactusHead Puppets are known for their playful performance style and exuberant creativity. The West Springfield-based company was founded in 2010 by husband and wife team John and Megan Regan. Since then, they have created numerous shows based on favorite, familiar folktales and have toured throughout Western New England. John and Megan are both graduates of the University of Connecticut's Puppet Arts program. Megan is originally from the Kansas City area, where she worked with Paul Mesner Puppets. John is from Western Massachusetts, and is honored to be performing in the same libraries where he saw puppet shows growing up. Megan collects pop-up books, and John has a love for giant monster movies. Both John and Megan interned at Puppet Showplace Theater many years ago, and they are excited to return to Boston to share their work as professional puppeteers!
