PPP History & Purpose:
Founded in 1991, Pied Piper was started by a group of adults that wanted to bring the live theatrical experience to children in the area. In its early years, they presented two annual shows. Due to increased community interest and participation, they expanded to four annual productions in 2004.
Offering theatre to students in grades K—12 grades, Pied Piper boasts participation from students across the region including Tupelo and Lee County, Union, Prentiss, Itawamba, Monroe, Chickasaw, Pontotoc. Each production is presented for the community, in addition to a school performance, which is free to all area school districts, private schools and home schooled children. In addition to providing a chance to step in front of a spot light, participating in Pied Piper gives children a chance to work on life skills like public speaking, team building, responsibility, work ethic, and so much more.
