I always get excited to attend shows at ZACH because they never, ever disappoint. They offer such wonderful, high-quality productions with amazingly talented actors, so I can always look forward to having a great experience. With that said, I was only slightly nervous that my oldest son, age 9, might actually skew too old for a show about the three little pigs. I mean, it’s a classic story for sure, but for some reason I was afraid that it might be geared more towards preschoolers. But let me tell you, I had no reason to worry.

ZACH Theatre’s The Three Little Pigs is a fun show for all ages. (Really, ALL ages.) My five year-old was on the edge of his seat, clapping and laughing and fully engaged the entire time. My older boys were also giggling and digging the songs in this musical production. My husband and I were both truly entertained, as were all of the grownups in the theatre.

The Three Little Pigs is a really fun musical! These modern little pigs sang songs that were upbeat and fresh. And when the Elvis-style Big Bad Wolf entered the stage, he sure did bring a whole new level of excitement to the show. Played by Russel Taylor, this Big Bad Wolf was really awesome (and our favorite character in the show). He started out slightly scary to the kiddos, but soon sang and danced and simply entertained.
