Minnesota Conservatory for the Arts (MCA) invites the community to join us for a unique out door theatre experience. For three performances audiences young and old will squeal with delight as they travel to different locations on MCA’s property to hear a fantastic new twist on an old tale titled, “Thirty-Three Little Pigs” by Brian D. Taylor.
The cast made up of Winona area youth will tell the show of how 33 pigs in the meadow continuously outsmart the hungry wolf, much in the style of Roadrunner and Coyote or Tom and Jerry. From Straw, Stick, and Brick pigs to Pirate, Chef, and Ninja pigs (and more!), they each have their chance to misdirect, heckle, and hound the bumbling Big Bad Wolf, who only finds himself further and further from getting his fill of little piggies! Full of classic, pop-culture, and world-inspired piggie characters and references, audiences will go hog-wild for this show!
Shows will be July 30 at 7pm and July 31 at 2pm and 7pm. Since many cast and audience members are not currently eligible to be vaccinated, everyone at the event will be asked to follow MCA’s COVID Code of Conduct to help mitigate the spread of COVID. At this time this means that cast members will be masked and that audience members will be asked to wear a mask when they are in transition between performance locations or not 6-feet away from members of another pod.
Tickets are only $5 per person and may be purchased at the event. Cash or check only. The play is broken into 8 sections in 8 locations around the block. The audience will travel to each location as the story unfolds. We recommend bringing a camp chair to sit and watch at each location! A small number of chairs will be available for those in need.
UPDATE: 7/30/21 performance at 7pm will be held inside the Academy Theatre due to poor air quality. Seating will be provided and masks will be required for all audience members.
