The Three Javelinas
by Magik Theatre
Mar. 10 - Apr. 16, 2017
The Magik Theatre presents The Three Javelinas, based on the popular books by Susan Lowell, illustrated by Jim Harris, and published by Rising Moon Publishers, adapted from The Three Little Javelinas and Josefina Javelina with book and lyrics by Jenny Millinger and music by Todd Hulet. Magik is the first theatre company to produce this family musical since its premiere in 2015 at Childsplay in Tempe, Arizona.
This take on “The Three Little Pigs” is set in the southwest among the tumbleweeds and ocotillo, as brother and sister javelinas try to outwit a coyote and end up learning what it means to be a family. This production is recommended for ages five and up and runs approximately one hour and ten minutes with no intermission.
“The Javelina Band plays at their local cantina, but Josefina has her heart set on becoming a star in Hoggywood,” says director Greg Hinojosa. “The siblings fight, as siblings do, but when they face adversity in the form of a hungry Coyote, they pull together as a family.”
“I included this show in our season because the books are wonderful and because the live band onstage really makes for incredibly fun experience,” says Magik’s Managing Artistic Director Frances Limoncelli. Actors on guitar, bass, ukulele, and percussion play most of the music in the show live onstage.
