3 Little Pig Tails

23 October 2018

'Let me in little piggie it's blowing a gale
Not by the hairs on my little pink tail'
A brand new version of the classic story of the three little pigs set in Paris. A grumpy old wolf is a chef who wants some pigs' tails for his soup.  Will the little pigs outwit the wolf and what kind of house will they build?  A funny, warmhearted and interactive rustic tale to make you squeal with laughter, bristling with puppets, live music and lots of joining in.
