This summer, the Merry-Go-Round Youth Theatre will tour a brand new adaptation of one of the most beloved, classic fairy tales, The Three Little Pigs! The play, Huff and Puff: A Pig Tale, follows three siblings who are all headed out into the world and must each make themselves a home. Two of the pigs use straw and sticks to build their homes, but when the Big Bad Wolf comes knocking, they find this may have been a mistake. The third pig spends more time and effort on his house of bricks to create a more stable dwelling which manages to hold the wolf at bay. Throughout the story, the pigs meet several other classic fairy tale characters who help them on their journey, including the 3 Billy Goats Gruff, Rapunzel, and Goldilocks. In the end, everyone learns Building a Better World isn’t just about working hard, but also about listening to other people, trying to understand how they feel, and helping them to be their best.
Performances of Huff and Puff: A Pig’s Tale are scheduled to take place in the Novelis Family Park on Saturday, July 29, at 12:30 p.m. and 4 p.m. The Merry-Go-Round Theater appears at Harborfest courtesy of The Children’s Board of Oswego.
