Emerald City Theatre is getting ready to open their new show, The True Story of the Three Little Pigs. Emerald City is well-known for their charming, silly and highly-creative adaptations of classic fairy tales. From the show’s press information:
There are two sides to every story. The Big Bad Wolf says his is the true story. This is a hilarious retelling of the popular story, which Publishers Weekly called the “Funniest book of the year.” In this highly interactive production, the audience joins Random Adjective, Ace Reporter, in using reporting skills to uncover the truth. The “true” story is then selected by the audience at each performance. 60 minutes, for ages 3 and up
Grab a kid and go. After all: it’s cheaper than taking the little nippers to an afternoon at the movies, and, I think, more mentally engaging. Not that I’m a child expert by any means — in fact, I’m the exact opposite of that — but, from what I saw around me when I attended Emerald City’s A Nutty Nutcracker Christmas last month, the kids LOVED it.
The show runs January 16-March 25, 2010. More information here.
