PRESS
“One of the best children’s shows of the year. Case closed.” –The New York Times

The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs! sparkles on the musical stage, with book and lyrics by Robert Kauzlaric and music by Paul Gilvary and William Rush… The Oregon Children’s Theater has dived into the trough of creativity, and pulled up a juicy plum of a show with fun music and lots of humor. It’s a good piece for young children, with a lesson to learn in this new version of the children’s tale: There’s more than one side to a story, and just because someone’s different, that doesn’t mean they’re evil.” –The Oregonian

“A retelling of the classic tale with catchy rockabilly tunes… Kids and adults will be entertained as the Big Bad Wolf tries to convince us that he’s not all that bad… The show is peppered with just enough adult in-jokes to keep us engaged along with the kids… Don’t miss this show. The kids can’t wait to go back.” –Chicago Parent

“One of those rare shows that draw people of all ages together in shared glee at something that’s funny, fresh and good-natured.” –Syracuse.com

“A perfect example of what children’s theater should be: fun, lively, and NOT insulting to the intelligence… Like episodes of Rocky and Bullwinkle, The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs makes kids laugh but is also filled with jokes that work on another level, causing adults to chuckle.” –Fort Myers Florida Weekly
