"The Totally Twisted Tale of the Three Little Pigs"

About: Our modern adaptation of this fairy tale favorite puts a new twist on a timeless tale! When Stanley (the cool pig on the block) is encouraged to invite Ralphie (the new sheep on the block) to his backyard camp-out, hilarity and chaos ensues! Will Stanley’s campfire story be enough to scare Ralphie into running home? Or will Ralphie turn the tables on his high-on-the-hog host? This fast-paced performance teaches important lessons in finding friendships where you least expect them, and the bond that can be formed over a book. - Description from Porkchop Productions
