Pig Tales | Magic Owl Children’s Theater

August 8, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Bring the kids and have a blast.

The Magic Owl Children’s Theatre of Timber Lake Theater presents Pig Tales running August 8, and 10-12, starting at 2 p.m.

Your favorite fairy tale characters help the Three Little Pigs over the river and through the woods so they can build their dream house. But look out! The Big Bad Wolf has other plans! Sing along with the pigs as they sing “A Pig Sty Palace” and the wolf as he sings “I’m Hungry.” Pig Tales features catchy music, a familiar story, and much action.

“Pig Tales is a high energy, audience participation show that keeps the kids cheering!” said TLP Artistic Director Darren Mangler, who also directs Pig Tales. “The crowd has a blast booing the Big Bad Wolf and yelling for the Three Pigs as they try to build their house.”

Pig Tales is written by TLP alum Leslie “Lee” Adami. Lee is a fifteen-year veteran director/writer/choreographer/ and actress at Timber Lake Playhouse. Originally from England, Lee toured the world in dance troupes and currently lives in Scales Mound, Illinois. She returned last year as the director of Plaid Tidings and will be directing Church Basement Ladies in the fall. Her other children’s show, The Forest Stone, was also produced at TLP with huge fanfare. A master of British Pantomime, she shares her knowledge of the genre with us to entertain the youth with great exuberance.

Pig Tales is a musical for children of all ages. This one-hour, non-stop, mad-cap adventure uses familiar storybook characters to help Three Little Pigs avoid the Big Bad Wolf and make it home safely. The actors direct laughs and cheers from the audience.

“Pig Tales was a huge hit when first introduced to TLP in 1990,” said Mangler, “and we’re really excited to bring it back again!”
