New Center Park is pleased to add one additional theatre show to our Summer Entertainment Series by Wayne State University's Hilberry Theatre Company: The True Story of the Three Little Pigs. A comedy by Robert Kauzlaric, Paul Gilvary, and William Rush. Based on the book by Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith.
You thought you knew the story of The Three Little Pigs... You thought wrong. This is the story of the 3 little pigs from the perspective of Alexander T. Wolf. The wolf is trying to set the story straight of how he came to be 'big and bad'. At the beginning of the play he's cooking a cake for his grandmother's birthday, but he's run out of sugar. He goes to ask his neighbors, the pigs, for some sugar. They all say no to him, and as a result of a sneeze, he 'accidentally' blows the first two pigs' houses down. Since they're already dead he eats them. The third pig's house (made of bricks) does not suffer the same fate. Mr. Wolf is arrested and the third pig survives. So Mr. Wolf is in jail and his poor sweet granny gets no birthday cake.
June 17 | Doors @ 7PM. Performance @ 8PM.
