Rating Review
Customer Rating My Stage School have just started work on "rats" and we're really enjoying it. I am playing the Narrator and I love all of the music really - but especially the "Rat Race Rules" becuase it has a great beat and it's easy to dance to. The music is really professional and some of the songs are quite challenging - top A's and 3 part harmonies and things so hopefully people will begin to realise that we are actually quite good! It is very accomodating - since we have quite a wide age group (from about 6 to 16) there are parts for everyone - the mayor, the narrator and the alderman for the older people and the children and the rats for some of our younger students. The music also gives good dancers a chance to show off their abilities.

Customer Rating My school is doing this for our summer musical. I may only be a citizen but even such a meagre part is kept interested throughout the whole production. No matter how many times I hear the amazing songs I will not get sick of them as the lyrics are so amusing and the background tunes are great to dance to. 'The rat race rules' is the best song as it has so much rhythm and is just incredible. I think it is the best musical we have ever done.

Customer Rating Our Technology Centre in New Zealand recently staged an inaugural musical production which was produced by the Centre and held on our premises. This production was an extension technology programme with 120 students from our 17 participating schools involved not only on stage but in the set construction, sound and lighting, make-up, wardrobe, publicity, programme, front of house, and catering.
We chose ‘Rats’ because of its catchy music and the length of the show meant we could really achieve a highly polished performance. The students involved loved the show and we received marvelous feedback from our audiences. Some ‘little ones’ that saw a matinee reported that they thought the Rats were very scary.

Customer Rating The music has a happy feel and is good to sing along to. The work is so good it plays in Hameln, Germany every Wednesday in the summer for the tourists. Nigel Hess himself has seen the show and was enthusiastic about it. He said that he had never dreamt that the musical would become so internationally popular.

Customer Rating I love this!!! My school performed it last year and it was absolutely brilliant. I was the Queen Rat and loved my part. We did it at the local theatre and it looked absolutely bril. I loved the Rat Race Rules and it was just sung so loudly and with so much...umph! that the audience went MAD!!!
I love this show and wouldn't mind doing it again.
