The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs

True Story of 3 Little Pigs - Dallas Children's Theater

Is A. Wolf Guilty or Not Guilty? — YOU Decide!

 

A. Wolf finally gets to tell his side of the story and YOU determine the ending of the play in this jazzy-cool-howl-at-the-moon musical that will blow the hair off your chinny chin chin!  Hot off its acclaimed national tour, Dallas Children’s Theater (DCT) presents the real story of the Big, Bad Wolf in The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs! playing June 21 – July 14.

Based on the hilariously popular book by Jon Scieska and Lane Smith, the play begins where the book leaves off.  It’s a thrilling courtroom dram-edy…with music, ham, and a cup of sugar.  The story begins outside the courthouse in Piggsylvania.  Alexander T. Wolf is on trial for the murder of two of the three little pigs.  Fast-talking independent reporter pig, Lillian Magill, claims nobody has ever heard the Wolf’s side of the story, and she is hungry for the truth.  The Honorable Prudence Pig, a tough as nails judge with a weakness for musical theater, presides over the case.  A sharp, smooth-talking lawyer pig named Julia is the prosecuting attorney, and she always gets her way.  Al is a soulful charmer with a love of gourmet cooking and the fine arts. He takes the stand in his own defense, but it looks as though the piggy world is against him.  After all, he is a carnivore to the core, but is he also the victim of a media frame-up? Will Magill get her journalistic glory?

Guilty or not guilty? — YOU decide!

The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs! is enjoyed by ages 5 and above.
