Youth Theatre production info released

Independent staff and submitted information

Van Wert Civic Theatre will present Twelve Angry Pigs under the direction of Monica Campbell. Families are invited to attend performances July 30 and 31 at 7:30 p.m. and August 1 at 2 p.m.  

In this comedic parody of Twelve Angry Men, a certain wolf is on trial for blowing down a pair of houses owned by the Three Little Pigs. A jury of swine must now decide if they will convict or declare the wolf not guilty. Most of the angry pigs believe the wolf is big and bad. However, some storybook characters help the pigs review the facts, and Juror No. 8 asks some tough questions that will make the rest of the pigs realize that the testimony of Little Girl Blue is nothing but hogwash.
