Behind the Scenes of
The 3 Little Pigs & More

About the Story
Today’s performance combines a variety of puppet styles with a variety of stories! The 3 Little Pigs & More is a collection from around the world. The Frog Prince, from Germany, uses hand puppets to deliver a moral from which we can all learn. Three Billy Goats Gruff, from Scandinavia, uses rod puppets to show clever goats outsmarting a not-so-evil troll. And The Three Little Pigs, from England, uses whimsical rod characters to prove good over bad is always best. But what makes the show truly unique is the menagerie of zany characters between the tales. With everything from The Blockheads to The Wobblies, The 3 Little Pigs & More has something for everyone.
