Main Stage Theatre Production: The Three Little Pigs
02/23/2019
4 p.m. - 5 p.m.
You may think you know this story, but you've never before seen it like this. This piggy tail is full of audience participation, radical plot twists and musical montages. Little Red Riding Hood makes a special appearance as a friendly real estate agent, and a Simple Machines Fairy appears in a puff of smoke to teach the pigs how to build houses. The play is centered around a courtroom drama in which Judge Spoon and his Froggy Bailiff get to the bottom of who truly owns the land-- the pigs or the wolves. To top it off (spoiler alert!) we are tripling the wolves, for three times the huffing and puffing trouble! Hilarity ensues with this over-the-top version of our very favorite story. Adapted and directed by Museum & Theatre Director of Theatre & Education Reba Askari and performed by our company of young actors. $10/ticket (Museum & Theatre members receive 10% off). Purchase tickets online, by phone at (207) 828-1234, or stop by the front desk.
