Main Street Theater (MST) presents the wonderfully fun family musical HELLO, MRS. PIGGLE-WIGGLE!

Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle-- think Mary Poppins and Nanny McPhee combined-- has been delighting children and their parents for decades in Betty MacDonald's classic Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle book series. Now, she delights in musical form.

Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle understands children in a way no one else does. That's why parents all over town come to her for help teaching their children how to behave. With her imaginative ideas and crazy cures, Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle saves the day.

The production is directed by Robin Robinson who recently directed Click, Clack, Moo: Cows at Type at MST. The musical director is Eduardo Guzman. The cast includes Brennan Ashley, Daniel Edwards, Carian Lynée Parker, Ellen Dyer Smith, Elizabeth Tinder, R. Cantrell Williams, Whitney Zangarine, and Maggie the Dog.

The design team is Glenda Wolfe (costume), Liz Freese (set), David Gipson (lighting), Yezminne Zepeda (sound), and Tina Montgomery (props). Sophia L. Torres is the choreographer. Rachael Fernandez is the production stage manager.
