The Surprising Story of the Three Little Pigs

Louise “Scottie” Stephenson Amphitheatre
Wednesday, October 26, 2022
10:00am & 12:30pm

By Linda Daugherty

What would happen if three classic fairy tales – The Three Little PigsThe Three Billy Goats Gruff, and Goldilocks and the Three Bears – got a little mixed up between “once upon a time” and “happily ever after?” When the pigs start to wonder what life would be like if the wolf were not always at their door, the billy goats gruff grow tired of trip-trapping over the troll’s bridge, and Papa Bear realizes he’s had enough of meddlesome little Goldilocks, the three trios join forces and swap a few things around! Families will roll with laughter as the narrator and performers juggle the interweaving stories in this fast-paced silly take on traditional favorites.

Book & Lyrics by Susan DiLallo
Music & Lyrics by Danny Abosch

Fancy Nancy and her friends Bree, Rhonda, Wanda, and Lionel are going to be performing in their very first show, “Deep Sea Dances.” Nancy is positive, that’s fancy for 100 percent sure, that she and Bree will be picked to be mermaids. When another girl wins the coveted role of the mermaid, Nancy is stuck playing a dreary, dull tree. Can Nancy bring fancy flair to her role, even though it isn’t the one she wanted?

My Wonderful Birthday Suit

Gaddy-Goodwin Teaching Theatre
Wednesday, May 10, 2023
10:00am & 12:30pm

By Gloria Bond Clunie

Rainbows, moonbeams and a bit of birthday magic make for a super-fun party! But friendships are questioned when judgements and comments about skin color slip out. This spectacular story told with music, an awesome puppet named Bobo the bird and the wonder of a magical Thinking Tree will give everyone something to ponder. Each of us is “gift wrapped” in our own unique way but it’s what’s on the inside that truly makes us special. This powerful conversation-starter proves that you’re never too young (or too old) to be kind.
