Pathways School Noida celebrates its First Founder’s Day on 22nd October 2011 with a Musical Theatre Production “RATTING OUT”

RATTING OUT

A production by

PATHWAYS SCHOOL NOIDA 

The students of Pathways School in Noida are engaging with the popular protests against corruption in an unusual way. They are staging a rock musical with a uniquely contemporary twist.

Ratting Out is loosely taken from the story of the Pied Piper of Hamelin – but it is set in today’s India.  Underlying the story of the city filled with rats is the theme of corruption, how ordinary people suffer and what they can do to battle it.

The Rat King is a cool villain who sings in rap to establish his leadership and the Piper has the charisma of a rock star.

The musical is special because the script, music and choreography have been composed by the staff of the school.

For everyone who followed the anti-corruption protests, the song of the corrupt city councilors will be a delight:

We’re fat and happy, as happy can be.

That’s the way it’s been through history.

We gladly receive the piles of gold,

All public property is ours to be sold.

Chorus

O it’s fine to be a counselor

To decide and to rule.

The kickbacks are great

Cos I’m not a fool.

We’re all doing it,

So don’t you see

Live well is our motto

In this city

The search for a hero who will clean up the city made absolute sense to the students  of the school who are busy rehearsing for the school’s Founders Day on October 22nd.

Every age needs a hero, a Batman would do,

Driving his batmobile, giving villains their due.

Superwoman would do fine

Cos we know women can,

They’d get rid of the vermin

That’s plaguing our land.

We need our own hero

The advertisement’s been put

On TV and Radio Mirchi

Someone who’ll clean up for good

We need our own hero

Of corruption we’re tired,

Who’ll get rid of our rats

Yes, that’s what’s desired.

Direction: Kriti Sharma

Music Composition: Ignacio Corral Bermejo & Kamaleshwar Verma

Choreography: Sushant Ummat

Script & Lyrics: Shalini Advani
