Classic children's tale will blow the house down.

THE classic children's tale Three Little Pigs will be staged by Tip Top Productions at The Forum Studio Theatre in Chester from Monday, February 17-Saturday, February 22.

The show, which is recommended for ages five up to young teenagers and their families, is written and directed by Phil Cross, who created the sell out productions of The Witches in 2018 and The Twits in 2019.

Phil is also the brains behind the highly popular Wizard School which takes place at St Mary's Creative Space in Chester each year.

He said: "There's more to our Three Little Pigs than you might expect - this isn't the five minute nursery school story you've heard before, but there will still be a wolf and plenty of huffing and puffing, plus lots of laughs and some audience participation.

"If you enjoyed our production of The Twits last year, join us this half-term and follow our piggy friends as they discover what it takes to outwit the wicked wolf and learn the value of being different and playing to your strengths."

The play features Dan Shenton as Harold the Pig, Amy Jones as Henrietta the Pig, Jake Cross as Hargreaves the Pig with Jack Morris as The Wolf, The show will be narrated by Peter Edwards who played Mr Twit in last year's half-term show at the theatre.

In addition to shows at The Forum Studio Theatre and continuing its excellent relationship with Theatr Clwyd, in March, Tip Top will present Cheshire Cats written by Chester based writer Gail Young.

The play, which runs at the Emlyn Williams Theatre at the Mold venue from March 4-7, tells the story of a group of friends who are taking part in a Moonlight Walk in aid of a Breast Cancer charity.

It was first performed in 2005 followed by sell out performances at the Edinburgh Fringe festival in 2006 and The Forum Studio Theatre in 2011.

Since being published by Samuel French in 2011, the play has been performed throughout the world by many different theatre companies and has raised many thousands of pounds for cancer charities.
