MUNSTER, Ind. (July 19, 2018) – An updated spin on the storybook classic The Three Little Pigs is the summer fun ticket for TATC’s 2018 Imagination Discovery Series on Saturday, August 4, with two performances: 10:00am and noon.
According to Charlie Misovye, TATC’s Group Sales and Theatre for Young Audiences Coordinator, the Imagination Discovery Series provides families interactive and entertaining opportunities, combining live theatre with special learning activities, prizes, and surprises to engage young minds.
The day includes paid raffle prize drawings, free coloring pages, free “wearable piggy ears” (compliments of Smithfield, which is also providing free coupons and pork recipes), and onstage photo opportunities to pose for pictures with the costume characters from the cast of The Three Little Pigs. All events and activities throughout the day are at Theatre at the Center, located in The Center for Visual and Performing Arts, 1040 Ridge Road in Munster.
This one-hour touring production of The Three Little Pigs is produced by Chicago Kids Company and based on the classic tale of a trio of pigs who team up to outwit a hungry wolf. For this telling, audiences meet Roxanne, Petunia, and Babe, three sister piggies with very different personalities who are each eager to build their own houses. Audiences of all ages will love this stage visit to the tiny cottages made from straw, sticks, and bricks while being watchful for the windy wolf.
The show is recommended for pre-school through 5th grade. All performances are one hour. While lobby activities are free, tickets to The Three Little Pigs are $8 for children and $10 for adults.
