This adaptation of the tale is a bilingual (Spanish/English) show about three brothers: One messy, one a daydreamer, one who always has a plan for the future. They are “Pig Scouts,” the pride of youthful swinedom, and they must set up camp to earn their merit badges.
The morals of this story, written and directed by Alex “A.C.” Gardner are self-reliance, responsibility, the wisdom of following instructions -- as well as caution, observation and teamwork.
The Pig Brothers are played by Nicholas Lewis as Phil, Clay Ratcliff as Paul and Terren Gamble as Pedro.
Greg Hall plays Scout Master Wolf.
Sammie Ammons is the music director and Cherita Judson is the choreographer. The forest setting was designed by Samatha Calkins.
Marshi and Richard Solis designed the costumes.
Spanish translation and coaching is by Epig Dominguez.
The Houston troupe performed “Rudolph” and “Alice in Wonderland” at PACT in 2009.
