featuring The Three Little Pigs
Toby returns with more fun for the very young and more tales including Three Little Pigs and the story of Boswell, the Polar Bear (who happens to drift south on his iceberg to chance upon friendly southern animals before he is blown back to the North Pole).
With participation, fun and games for young audiences.
“I like it that such care went into the making of these shows.I was struck by the fullness of detail and the surprising elaborateness of the sets. The three little pigs really looked piggy for a change, with pink, rotund bodies and the right shaped ears and snouts.” -Village Voice
“Warm, friendly atmosphere for the beguiling presentation.”
