About the Show
THE TRUE STORY OF THE THREE LITTLE PIGS
BY PAUL GILVARY, ROBERT KAUZLARIC AND WILLIAM RUSH
BASED ON THE BOOK BY JON SCIESZKA AND LANE SMITH
There are two sides to every story, and when the Big, Bad Wolf takes the stand in Piggsylvania’s Trial of the Century, he finally gets his say. But whether he’ll get a fair trial in a corrupt piggy court is anyone’s guess. Will the pigs’ splashy puppet show make a puppet out of justice, or is the wolf’s catchy song and dance about a sneeze gone wrong all razzle-dazzle?
The Intrepid Journalist
Lillian Magill (aka “Nancy”) A fast–talking, inquisitive reporter pig. A tough sow in a hog’s world, seeker of truth and justice, and the audience’s best friend in their hunt for the full story.
The Presiding Judge
The Honorable Prudence A thoroughly biased, hard–as–nails, utterly corrupt cog in the wheel of what–passes–for–justice in Piggsylvania. Her chief weakness is a love of musical theatre.
Alexander T. Wolf A soulful wolf with a rumpled suit and a toothy grin. Beneath the gruff image is a love for gourmet cooking and the fine arts. He’s a charmer (perhaps a con artist?), but still a carnivore to the core: tough, strong, and territorial.
The Prosecuting Attorney
Julia A dramatic, over–the–top firebrand of a lawyer pig; prone to speechifying. She will do or say anything to win a case, no matter how low or manipulative.
The Witnesses for the Prosecution
Maxwell A clever pig, geeky and unassuming; a fancier of masonry and construction.
Billy Shears A handsome, dashing doctor pig; a paid “expert” for the prosecution.
Martha A matronly pig, unwilling witness to horrific acts of carnivorism.
Rocky A big n’ brutish civil–servant pig.
Pigs #1, 2 & 3 Ensemble–type piggies.
