This year, The Public Theatre will be producing a show to specifically serve young audiences and their families. Featuring professional actors and the usual high artistic quality people expect, The Public Theatre will produce a hip and hilarious original musical adaptation of The Three Little Pigs perfect for children Pre-K thru 5th grade and their families Nov 14-19.

This little piggy likes Facebook... This little piggy likes shopping... This little piggy likes homework... Which little piggy will escape the big bad wolf and choose the strongest foundation for her life and home? An entertaining lesson about the dangers of choosing style over substance, the story features three sassy pigs, two of whom enjoy shopping at Calvin Swine and going to Stybucks, and one little piggy who enjoys doing her homework and aspires to be an architect. Director Janet Mitchko promises that this will be a clever and entertaining production guaranteed to leave you squealing with delight!

Also new this year, The Public Theatre is introducing a YOUTH PRICED TICKET which will allow any child under the age of 18 to attend ANY PERFORMANCE at The Public Theatre, Lewiston/Auburn's Professional Theatre, for only $5!
