Will the pigs' splashy puppet show make a puppet out of justice, or is the wolf's catchy song and dance about a sneeze gone wrong all razzle-dazzle?

Published Reviews

"One of the best children's shows of the year. Case closed."

The New York Times

"...a juicy plum of a show with fun music and lots of humor."

Holly Johnson, The Oregonian

"Don't miss this show. The kids can't wait to go back."

Chicago Parent

"A perfect example of what children's theater should be: fun, lively, and NOT insulting to the intelligence."
