Our 2020/21 Season
will include a project like nothing Pied Piper has ever done before... an original four-part web series shot entirely on location in the forests of northern Manhattan, Robin Hood. This re-telling of the ancient legend includes Robin, Marian, Will Scarlett, Friar Tuck, and the merry band as you’ve never seen them before. Can this clever band of thieves with hearts of gold foil the Sheriff of Nottingham and his men in their evil plans and bring peace and prosperity to Sherwood? Tune in to find out!
Original screenplay by Leslie Kincaid Burby and Joe Burby

Final Performance in January, Date TBA!
In this Zoom Play Making workshop for children ages 5-13 we will explore the archetype of
the Trickster in folk tales and poems from around the world, and the expression of the
trickster in the guise of nature and animals. Children will become Play Makers,
collaborating to create a culminating performance in mid-December. The focus of this
workshop will be the process of theatre creation rather than a focus on performance,
although the children will create performances to share.
Participants will be led through improvisation and drama games and an inquiry process to
retell these traditional stories through their own artistic voice. They will also participate
in the process to create their own costumes, props, and backdrops to use.
The workshop will be conducted over Zoom beginning with ensemble building and drama games in mid-October and will culminate in an online performance. The goal of this experience is to foster a collaborative, child led, creative environment by focusing on the process of theatre and thus developing confidence, empathy, and community building skills.
Pied Piper Winter Gala!
Games, Silent Auction, and Virtual Watch Party!
When Covid-19 hit, Pied Piper was only two weeks away from opening night of our Spring Musical: Once Upon a Mattress. The kids had been rehearsing for months. You can imagine the devastation when all performances had to be cancelled. In an effort to console and keep spirits up, PPCT Artistic Director had kids continue to rehearse via Zoom and film their parts at home-- then edited all video into a virtual version of the show that the kids could still share and be proud of. The premiere of this virtual version will be included as part of our Pied Piper Winter Gala!
