Roald Dahl's "The Three Little Pigs" is another exciting addition to A&C Black's "Roald Dahl" series of musicals for schools. It joins "Snow-White and the Seven Dwarfs", "Jack and the Beanstalk", "Goldilocks and the Three Bears" and "Little Red Riding Hood" in a glittering line-up of wickedly funny productions which children and audiences just love. Piggy number three is in a tight corner - Wolf has gobbled up his neighbours and now he's hammering at the door with a stick of dynamite in his hand. Who can Piggy call on for help? Sweet Miss Riding Hood, of course - the fearless wolf-slayer. And how is he to know that she fancies a pigskin handbag to go with her wolfskin coat?!As with every one of these great Roald Dahl musicals, "Three Little Pigs based" is based on an orchestral commission by the Roald Dahl Foundation. The concert work, from which the schools' musical is derived is by Paul Patterson, and schools can use the extracts provided from the orchestral work to enhance their performances. Schools can buy a performance licence online C Black A&C Black website, which also has a forum, a Hall of regular updates; another winner!
