Photo Flash: Lifeline Theatre's THE TRUE STORY OF THE 3 LITTLE PIGS Extends thru March 2
To accommodate ticket demand, Lifeline Theatre announces eight added performances of its KidSeries production of The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs!, a family musical based on the popular children's book by Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith, with script and lyrics by 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. Scroll down for photos from the production!
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 is on sale in the lobby.
