The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs!

There are two sides to every story, and when the Big, Bad Wolf takes the stand in Piggsylvania’s Trial of the Century, he finally gets his say. But whether he’ll get a fair trial in a corrupt piggy court is anyone’s guess. Will the pigs’ splashy puppet show make a puppet out of justice, or is the wolf’s catchy song and dance about a sneeze gone wrong all razzle-dazzle? Enter the jury box and decide the fate of Big ‘n’ Bad in this musical adaptation of the hit children’s book.

Casting

Alexander T. Wolf
Male
A soulful wolf with a rumpled suit and a toothy grin. Beneath the gruff image is a love for gourmet cooking and the fine arts.

Lillian Magill
Female
A fast-talking, inquisitive reporter pig. A tough sow in a hog's world, seeker of truth and justice, and the audience's best friend in their hunt for the full story.

Prudence, Pig #1
Female
A thoroughly biased, hard-as-nails, utterly corrupt cog in the wheel of what-passes-for-justice in Piggsylvania. Her chief weakness is a love for musical theatre.

Julia, Pig #2
Female
A dramatic, over-the-top firebrand of a lawyer pig; prone to speechifying. She will do anything to win a case, no matter how low or manipulative.

Maxwell, Rocky, Billy, Martha, Dr. Robert, Pig #3
Female

2 Director’s Scripts

A single-sided, spiral-bound script designed with plenty of space for the director to take notes and add blocking during the rehearsal process.

1 Stage Manager’s Script

A single-sided, three-hole punched script that can be inserted into your three-ring binder.

2 Piano/Conductor Scripts

A keyboard score that is a key part of the show’s actual orchestration. This score contains both vocal parts and a cue staff, which guides the conductor through the full orchestration by informing them when instruments enter the song, as well as providing specific part lines when necessary.

Orchestrations

Guitar, Bass, Drums, Alto Sax
