Party Pigs!

Party Pigs!

By Peter Wilson Presented by Little Dog Barking Theatre Company

Party Pigs! is a delightful puppetry story set around the excitement and anticipation of a child’s birthday party – piggy style!

After accidentally spoiling one little piggy’s birthday, nine little piggies decide to throw a surprise party for their friend. Working together, the excitement builds until they just can’t wait any longer. This joyous family-friendly play reflects a world of fun and games, whether real or imaginary, and reminds us as adults not to take life too seriously.

Brought to you by New Zealand’s own internationally acclaimed Little Dog Barking Theatre Company, this piggie party is perfect for children aged 2–7 years old.

By arrangement with Playmarket.

What's a social story? A social script is a document that uses storytelling techniques to explain new experiences and environments to people through simple language and images.

Tahi's festival social story includes what an person can expect when visiting Party Pigs at BATS – Such as how you can enter BATS, what it will look like, how the ticketing/box office works, what activities will occur, and what you can do if any patron feels overwhelmed.

The puppets are stunning works of art.
