By David Wood. Based on the Book by Dick King-Smith

Presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.

The season opens September 8 with a story of courage and camaraderie, Babe the Sheep Pig. Babe the Sheep Pig is based on the novel that inspired the Oscar-winning movie. The show, directed by Rose Artistic Director Matthew Gutschick, will run through September 24.

Babe the Sheep Pig tells a thrilling tale about sharing your gifts with the world. We believe families will walk away inspired by Babe’s bravery and decision to follow an unconventional dream,” says Gutschick.

In the show, a tiny piglet arrives at the Hogget Farm. He is mentored by a wise dog named Fly, who shares the secrets of sheepherding with the young pig. Babe soon learns that he has a unique gift for gently herding sheep. But when Babe finds himself at the Grand Challenge Sheep Dog Trials, is it his moment to shine or will he be laughed off the stage?

Plans for the show are still being developed, but we hear that audiences can expect some fun interactive elements, including pre-show carnival games and possibly opportunities to get upfront-and-personal with actors during the show itself. What a fun way to kick off the new season!

The 65-minute production of Babe the Sheep Pig will be presented on Fridays at 7 pm, Saturdays at 2 and 5 pm, and Sundays at 2 pm. Interpretation for guests who are deaf and hard of hearing and audio description services for blind audiences will be offered at the 2 pm show on Saturday, September 16. The 5 pm performance on Saturday, September 16 is designated as sensory friendly, with special accommodations made for families attending with a child on the autism spectrum or with other special needs. The show is recommended for children ages five and up.
