Music Department will present The Pied Piper of Hamelin for area schoolchildren

The Kilgore College Music Department will present the children's opera, “The Pied Piper of Hamelin,” Oct. 30 through Nov. 2 in Dodson Auditorium on the Kilgore campus.

The production is an original work by American composer Seymour Barab, intended for children and adults alike.

Performed by KC students, all shows are free and open to the public with daytime performances geared toward area schoolchildren. Each performance will last about an hour.

It will also feature local schoolchildren participating in the show, playing the rats and children led by the Pied Piper.

Groups of 10 or more need to call to reserve seats, but smaller groups are welcome to attend any performance without reservations.

No reservations are required for the Tuesday night performance.

More than 2,400 schoolchildren have already made reservations to watch the play.
