  • Pigs on the Run - the Show

    Pigs on the Run - the Show

    Pigs on the Run is the really popular children's holiday show that tells the story of the Three Little Pigs (Pua, Aka and Popo), but not as you know it. The video above is the opening song of the show where you can spot six-year-old drummer George Chu Ling and equally talented guitarist Ella Mavaega. {{4388}} This show was on at the Mangere Arts Centre in Auckland, Aotearoa/New Zealand, where it played to full houses every day and night during the school holidays. How cool - you can watch shows like this during your hols break with 21 performers and a live band. {{4391}} This clip above introduces the character of Lady Wolf in the musical. She is revealed as the real 'big bad boss wolf' behind the wolf character you usually see in 'Three Little Pig' stories - Big Bad Wolf (B.B. Wolf). But in this story B.B. stands for 'Baby Brother' Wolf. Lady wolf is hungry and it's up to B.B. Wolf to find her and the gang dinner...oh oh, watch out little pigs!! {{4392}} Who's runnin away who's runnin away? The chase is on!! {{4390}} The wolves tired from running after the pigs around town find a local netball tournament and the possibility of getting some dinner. {{4393}} After his older brother Pua Pig's straw house was blown away, Popo Pig tried to build a house of sticks. Do you think it will stand up to the big mouth B.B. Wolf? {{4389}} A whole lot of exciting things happen between Popo's house building experience and the rest of the show. Needless to say, the ending is an extravaganza of song!
