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.

Reviews & Ratings
Lifeline Theatre inaugurates its 27th anniversary MainStage season with the world premiere adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s “Treasure Island,” adapted by Lifeline ensemble member John Hildreth, directed by Lifeline ensemble member Robert Kauzlaric. A treasure map discovered in a dead pirate’s sea-chest leads young Jim Hawkins on an expedition across the ocean to recover a fortune in plundered gold. Fair winds and favorable seas soon give way to mutiny, greed and the evil machinations of a one-legged scoundrel named Long John Silver. Join Jim on an unforgettable adventure as he fights for his life - and the lives of his friends - in this legendary tale of piracy and heroism.
The show runs approximately two hours with one intermission, is appropriate for ages ten and up, and copies of the book will be on sale in the lobby.
Lifeline has produced five previous world premiere stage adaptations by Hildreth, including “Around the World in 80 Days” in 2002 and “Johnny Tremain” in 2006, both of which garnered Non- Equity Jeff Awards for New Adaptation. Kauzlaric has acted in eleven MainStage productions, and written four adaptations for Lifeline – including “The Island of Dr. Moreau,” winner of 2008’s Non- Equity Jeff Awards for Production-Play and New Adaptation. “Treasure Island” marks Kauzlaric’s directorial debut at Lifeline. The violence in “Treasure Island” will be choreographed by Geoff Coates, who previously choreographed the fights in Lifeline’s productions of “The Mark of Zorro” in 2008 (Non-Equity Jeff Award: Fight Choreography; After Dark Award: Outstanding Fight Choreography) and “The Talisman Ring” in 2005 (Non-Equity Jeff Award: Fight Design).
