Bossier Parish Community College Division of Communication and Performing Arts announces auditions for the upcoming production of the children’s play Three Little Pigs as told by Stephen W. Slaughter and directed by BPCC instructor Keith Bruce.

You all know the story: Three sibling pigs dream of peace and safety as they build houses of straw, sticks, and bricks to keep the Big Bad Wolf at bay. They learn several valuable life lessons along the way. The Wolf’s “huffing and puffing” blows down each house until the pigs finally band together to build a strong, stable house of bricks to protect themselves… et cetera, et cetera, et cetera.
That is only where the fun begins in this whacky musical adaptation of the classic fairy tale. Storyteller Stephen Slaughter has provided us with his special twist complete with goofy characters, comic situations, colorful antics, and a couple of new characters that will make you laugh until your sides hurt. There is also a special “nod” to such country-music legends as Dolly Parton, Wynonna Judd, and Garth Brooks as well as the songs that made them and others famous. Don’t miss out on being a part of this fun-filled children’s classic retold as only Stephen Slaughter can.
Performances are scheduled at 7:00 pm on April 8 and 15 and at 2:00 pm on April 9, 10, 16, 17.
