Lifeline Theatre Presents THE TRUE STORY OF THE THREE LITTLE PIGS, Now thru 2/16

Lifeline Theatre's KidSeries presents The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs!, a family musical based on the popular children's book by Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith.

Lifeline Theatre ensemble member Robert Kauzlaric (two-time Non-Equity Jeff Award-winning adaptor), music by Paul Gilvary and William Rush, and directed by Lifeline Theatre ensemble member Amanda Link. Since its inception at Lifeline Theatre in 2007, The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs! has been produced all over the country, by companies such as Children's Theatre of Charlotte, Oregon Children's Theatre, Dallas Children's Theatre, and Atlantic Theater Company (whose production the New York Times called "One of the best children's shows of the year. Case closed."). After being seen in 36 states across the U.S. the past seven years, this production marks the first time the show returns to the Chicago area since its premiere.

The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs! runs today, Jan. 11 - Sunday, Feb. 16 at Lifeline Theatre, 6912 N. Glenwood Ave. Press opening is Sunday, Jan. 12 at 1 p.m. Regular performance times are Saturdays and Sundays at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. (Previews are Saturday, Jan. 11 at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.; and Sunday, Jan. 12 at 11 a.m.) Tickets are $15 and may be purchased at the Lifeline Theatre Box Office, 773.761.4477, or by visiting

PLUS: Join Lifeline Theatre every Saturday and Sunday at 12 p.m. during the run of The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs! (following the 11 a.m. show, or before the 1 p.m. show) for our Stories Come Alive! Hour. Children will get up close and personal with the book behind the play with an interactive storytelling session and on-your-feet theatre games. The cost is only $5 per child. Parents are welcome to join the fun, though not required to stay. Contact Lifeline Theatre at 773-761-4477 for more information.

There are two sides to every story and the long-suppressed account of the Big, Bad Wolf is finally brought to light in Piggsylvania's Trial of the Century. Can a lone wolf get a fair trial in a corrupt piggy court? And will anyone believe that all the "huffing and puffing" nonsense was just a cover-up for a simple story about a sneeze and a cup of sugar? Enter the jury box and decide the fate of Big 'n Bad in this hit musical for the entire family. This production is recommended for children ages five and up (children under two not permitted), and runs one hour with no intermission. The book will be on sale in the lobby.
