Party Pigs adapted for the stage by Peter Wilson.
Designed by Tish Oldham.

Party Pigs is a story that explores the simple theme of a child’s adventure – piggy style. Ten little piggies decide to throw a party in the neighbourhood. The music starts up and the action begins. The party turns into an all night affair with whistling, fun, games, sweets, cakes, cool drinks and their very own band, until one little piggy just couldn’t stay awake. The play reflects the child’s world of fun and adventure, whether real or imaginary, and reminds us as adults not to take life too seriously.

The theme is based on the familiar nursery rhyme “This little piggy went to market”, can you remember it? The performance is a delightful introduction to the world of puppetry and inanimate objects. It is also a mathematical exercise for the audience, when they find themselves counting the piggies as they go on eating and partying the night away.

A Sausage Went for a Walk by Ellisha Majid and Peter Kendall.
Adapted for the stage by Peter Wilson.
Designed by Tish Oldham.

The play is centered around the breakfast table, where Tim’s breakfast comes alive to a revolutionary tune, walks off the plate, out the door and is never to be seen again. A Sausage Went for a Walk is a story about a rebellious sausage, baked beans closing ranks, corn flakes refusing to swim in the cold milk, toast dancing with butter and jam getting jammed off. The world of inanimate objects is brought to life as the story unfolds stretching one’s imagination to the limit.
