Children’s Theater to Host Play at Downing-Gross

Posted on June 21, 2017 at 7:56 AM by Communications Department

You think you know the story of the pigs and the houses, the person in the red cloak taking baskets to grandma's house, but you've never heard the real story - until now! Join the Children’s Theater of Hampton Roads on Wednesday, June 28 at 2 p.m. Theatre flyer_SCas they host I’ll Huff & I’ll Puff: the Absolutely True Story of the Big Bad Wolf.

The family-friendly play follows Boss Beulah Bell (a proper Southern pig) who is in charge of a little patch of countryside in the Fairytale Woods. But for Beulah, being the star of The Three Little Pigs isn’t enough. With the help of her dimwitted daughter Petaline and a well-intentioned want-ad Wolf, she plans to alter all the fairytales beyond repair. With the help of the audience, Petaline Prunella Pig and Wyoming Wolf (a.k.a. The Big Bad Wolf) vie to stop Beulah in her quest to change the fairytales as we know them into new works, such as “The Little Pig-maid”, “Pig-nocchio”, and “Snow Pig and the Seven Dwarves”.

Tickets for this engaging and interactive production are $5 and available on the Downing-Gross website. The play is sure to entertain the youngest audience members, the seasoned theatre-goers, and everyone in between!
