The Three Little Pigs-Classic Favorite!

In this very funny and not-so- traditional musical version of the Three Little Pigs, the Wolf isn’t Bad but, he is Big. And, boy, is he clumsy! The Wolf just wants to be friends with Rose, Frank and Ham, better known as the Three Little Pigs, but every time they get together, somebody gets hurt. Wolf doesn’t mean to scare the pigs or wreck their houses but he doesn’t know his own strength. When Wolf tells Mama Pig his troubles, she teaches Wolf how to be gentle and careful. Lessons of a job well done, thoughtfulness, and acceptance of differences are learned and taken to heart.

A lighthearted musical with a twist, in this adaptation the Wolf is not evil – just misunderstood. The Wolf wants to be friends with the Three Little Pigs and invite them to his birthday party. Things go terribly wrong for the Wolf when he tries to deliver the invitations. The Wolf is surprised that he has the strength to blow down the houses and feels badly about it. Ultimately, houses of straw, sticks and bricks are rebuilt along with friendships. Children learn lessons of a job well done, thoughtfulness and accepting differences.
