Babe the Sheep Pig

Big leaning on fence with Babe show title

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

“Babe the Sheep Pig” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.

Based on the novel that inspired the Oscar-winning movie, Babe, The Sheep Pig tells a thrilling tale about sharing your gifts with the world. When 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, to his and to Farmer Hogget’s amazement, he has a unique gift for gently herding sheep. But will Babe succeed on the largest stage of all, the Grand Challenge Sheep Dog Trials? Or will he be laughed off the stage?
