Discover how the three little porkers become world renowned celebrity superstars when forced to leave the warmth of their mother’s overcrowded sty. Will the Three Little Pigs cope without their adoring mother’s “hogs and kisses”? Will their DIY building skills cut the mustard? And will they be able to stand on their own four trotters and outwit the Big Bad Wolf?
The 3 Little Pigs will star Simon Webbe (Blue, Strictly Come Dancing, Sister Act), Alison Jiear (Britains Got Talent, Jerry Springer The Opera), Leanne Jones (Hairspray) and Taofique Folarin (The Lion King, Avenue Q).
Stiles and Drewe say: ‘‘Most children will know the story of The 3 Little Pigs, so our job has been to reinvent it in a theatrical way, with hummable, memorable songs that will appeal to the whole family. Our 3 Little Pigs – Bar who loves to exercise, Bee who is “green” to the core, and Q the insatiable bookworm – learn to work together as a team to defeat the Big Bad (but possibly misunderstood) Wolf. We love surprising and bewitching our younger audiences, some of whom will be visiting the theatre for the first time. We take it as a great responsibility to encourage and nurture audiences of the future, so we try to ensure their first experience of a musical is a memorable one.”
