Based on the legend of the Pied Piper, Otis Sallid and Aaron Jones’ new musical, Hamelin, is a mechanized steampunk world where the people work hard and play harder. Maya, a young girl, sets out to burn a light through the grit and the grime, the machinations and deceit, only to find that the trail she’s blazed ends in the belly of the beast – the Fatcats.

The students of the Summer Theater Lab have collaborated for three weeks with world-class professional theater artists to create a preview of a brand new musical from the creators of Smokey Joe’s Cafe.
