Family Comedy

The Surprising Story of the Three Little Pigs

October 22 - 30, 2022

RLT’s Louise “Scottie” Stephenson Amphitheatre (General Admission)

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.

By Linda Daugherty

Directed by Bryan Pridgen

Produced by special arrangement with THE DRAMATIC PUBLISHING COMPANY of Woodstock, Illinois

Attending a performance in the Amphitheatre

Since the amphitheatre is part of a City of Raleigh park, please adhere to the following rules:

  • You are welcome to bring your own food and non-alcoholic beverages
  • The theatre reserves the right to check coolers for outside alcohol
  • No open flames or candles (including citronella candles)
  • No glass bottles allowed
  • Dogs are allowed but must be kept on a leash and be well-behaved

Bringing blankets or chairs makes seating more comfortable. Lawn chairs or folding chairs work well. There is grass between the concrete benches, and chairs fit well in that space.

Indoor restroom facilities, which are wheelchair accessible, are available at the Main Stage lobby entrance. Porta-johns, which are also wheelchair accessible, are located to the left of the stage near the ramp.

The RLT parking lot will only be open to vehicles with disability parking placards as well as limited parking in the front half of the lot for anyone. The RLT staff parking lot is only for drop off of patrons with wheelchairs or mobility issues – no parking. You may park on the street where signposted.

In the event of a weather cancellation, all ticket holders will be notified via email with as much notice as possible. We will do our best to reschedule all ticket holders into future performances, subject to ticket availability.
