Adapted from the popular children's book of the same name, this spoof on the tale of the three little pigs (each with their own individual sense of home construction style) who were pursued by a ravenous wolf, aims to show a different side of the familiar story. In the biggest trial to hit Piggsylvania in quite some time, the Big Bad Wolf is trying to clear his name. Claiming to have been a victim of circumstance -- namely a particularly sneezy cold that caused him to inadvertently blow down some shabbily constructed homes while trying to borrow a cup of sugar -- it's up to you and your little ones to decide whether the Big Bad Wolf is as innocent as he claims to be in this fun, family-friendly musical.

Quotes & Highlights
- "Walsh's stellar adaptation [is] a guilty theatrical pleasure you don't have to atone for afterward. It's zesty, good fun — colorful theatrical comfort food with enough philosophical seasoning and emotional heat... The cogs and wheels of Holmquist's ensemble make this contraption hum like a well-tuned Bugatti" –Chicago Tribune

After escaping captivity, he enters the upper reaches of Parisian society under a new name: the Count of Monte Cristo. With the aid of Albert, son of his former fiancée, the Count insinuates himself into the lives of his three tormentors and, one by one, seeks to use their own secrets to destroy them. A dark tale of intrigue and vengeance, in a world premiere adaptation. Based on the 1844 classic by Alexandre Dumas (The Three Musketeers, The Man in the Iron Mask)
Adapted by Christopher M. Walsh
