Auditions: The Surprising Story of the Three Little Pigs

08/15/2022


Raleigh Little Theatre is seeking performers for its upcoming production of The Surprising Story of the Three Little Pigs. This show will be presented in the Louise “Scottie” Stephenson Amphitheatre.

For the safety of volunteers, staff, and students, all performers and crew members for the production of The Surprising Story of the Three Little Pigs must show proof of vaccination in order to participate. Other safety measures include: a mask requirement inside the building when not performing, a fully vaccinated staff, and an ongoing commitment to the health and safety of everyone who is working inside our facility and our community. You will be required to show proof of vaccination at the auditions. Special exemptions can be made for anyone with a medical condition that prevents them from receiving the vaccine.

About the Show

Three classic fairy tales (The Three Little Pigs, The Three Billy Goats Gruff, and Goldilocks and the Three Bears) begin in their usual “once upon a time” fashion; however, this time things change on the way to “happily ever after” as the pigs wonder what life would be like if the wolf were not always at their door, the billy goats gruff decide they can’t face another trip-trap over the troll’s bridge, and Papa Bear has had enough of the meddlesome little Goldilocks! Assisted by The Voice (struggling to narrate the changing stories) and three Stagehands (desperately trying to juggle sets to keep the stories straight), the three trios join forces to rewrite their stories, ridding themselves of their respective villains by exchanging them.
