  •     Rats the Musical, put on by Grand Fork's Safari Group and Crookston Community Theatre, tells the story of the Pied Piper through song, dance, laughter and acting. In the production, the fictional town of Hamline is infested by rats and needs desperately for something to be done to ease their suffering and end their horrific problem. The Pied Piper is then introduced and ends up saving the town from their rat infestation, meeting challenges and conquering for the greater good while still having time for a song or two.
        Sue LaPlante, director and coordinator of the kids musical for three years, believes it will be "a great show at a reasonable price," which is $8 for adults and $3 for kids. She would like to thank the community "for coming out and to the people who are coming on Friday and Saturday. It's because of the community that we're able to put this on every summer."
        Rats the Musical will be held Friday, August 16 at 5:40 p.m. and Satureday, August 17 at 1:00 p.m. at Kiehl Auditorium at the University of Minnesota Crookston.
