“The Three Little Pigs and B.B. Wolfe”: A FREE Eco-Inspired Musical Theatre Show
May 20 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Since the dawn of time, audiences have agreed that the Three Little Pigs were totally right to refuse entrance to the wolf in order to keep the hairs on their chinny chin chins intact.
But in this timely environmental twist on the classic tale, the huffing and puffing threatening houses isn’t coming from a wolf. And the wolf is neither big nor bad, but rather brainy and bashful.
B.B. Wolfe is a climate scientist, tasked with getting three stuck in their ways little pigs to think and act with stewardship in mind while learning to embrace energy-efficient building practices for a changing climate.
Will they let her in?
A slapstick musical theatre romp for young audiences by award-winning Alberta playwright, Jana O’Connor.
