The True Stories of the Three Little Pigs and The Frog Prince, Continued
TRUE STORIES combines two of award-winning children’s author Jon Scieszka’s beloved classics into one laugh-filled, hour-long musical for family audiences.
The satirical “True Story of the Three Little Pigs” features B.B. Wolf, protesting from prison his innocence in a recent crime wave and offering his version of the events, which, as he says, are all about “a sneeze and a cup of sugar.” With a musical score ranging from rockabilly to street bebop, “Pigs” delightfully skewers everything from celebrity criminals to new-agers to NIMBYS. Interwoven with “Pigs” is the hilarious and touching “The Frog Prince, Continued” which tells the story never told: what happens after “happily ever.” When tensions reach the breaking point in his marriage to the Princess, the Frog Prince goes on a quest to find someone who will turn him back into a frog.
Gary Rue’s beautiful melodies and Kent Stephens’ clever lyrics will have you laughing and crying at the same time. This musical is recommended for producing groups and audiences of all ages.
