Children's Hilltop Festival
July 24, The Three Little Pigs
A bilingual (Spanish/English) show about three brothers: One messy, one a daydreamer and the other 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. Now, who is that unfamiliar scout master who will be judging their work? It's the Wolf, Big-Bad to be specific.
July 25, Hansel & Gretel
Hansel and Gretel get lost in the woods and stumble upon the witch's gingerbread house. They are so hungry they begin eating. The silly, nearsighted, witch decides to teach the naughty children a lesson about how to treat other people's things. Well, suffice it to say, this is a play about jumping to conclusions. Nothing is as it seems.
July 26, Goldilocks
The Bear family returns home from a walk to find the next door neighbor, Goldilocks, has broken into their home. Was she hungry or sleepy? No, she wanted to use their computer to contact her new on-line friend. She wasn't allowed to use the computer at home and she doesn't have any friends at school. A bi-lingual (English/Spanish) tale that teaches us about the dangers of the internet, bullies and respect for people and their property.
July 27, Pinocchio
Combine a loving father, a talking puppet and the help of a Blue Fairy and you have one of the classic stories of all time. Pinocchio's dream is to become a real boy and he'll do anything to make his dream come true. What will it cost him and what will he learn before his dream comes true?
