Think you know the story of the mean ol’ Big Bad Wolf and the poor persecuted Three Little Pigs? This preposterous parody set in porker-centric Piggsylvania may muddle your memory! Join intrepid go-getter journalist Lillian McGill LIVE! in the ready-for-reality-TV courtroom for the trial of the century to determine if the wolf we all know as Big Bad is truly guilty of the crimes of which he has been accused. Will a wolf be able to get a fair trial in The “Honorable” Judge Prudence’s courtroom of chaos and corruption? You’ll get to be the jury and decide the fate of the furry accused!

First, please tell me you and your children have read The True Story of the Three Little Pigs by Jon Scieszka. Take that delightfully clever story, add 60s-style clothes and music, and involve the audience in the performance as the jury for the Big Bad Wolf’s trial, and that is the magic we witnessed at The Rose yesterday! The five-member ensemble cast took us on a captivating journey into the courtroom of Judge Juris Prudence (HA!) where the Mr. Wolf is getting a not-so-fair trial from the pig-biased judge and prosecutor.
