The Three Little Pigs and the Big Bad Storm now available from YouthPLAYS (and 25% off!)

Long time no chat! I’m still on my hiatus from social media but I want to pop in with some exciting news!

My first play specifically for elementary school aged performers and up, The Three Little Pigs and the Big Bad Storm, is now available exclusively through YouthPLAYS. Though suitable for performers as young as Kindergarten, it can be performed for any age and is a lot of fun for older performers to put on for the underclassmen. It’s comical and educational with lots of physical comedy for even the smaller parts. And the topic, unfortunately as recent events have shown, becomes more relevant every day.

The Three Little Pigs and the Big Bad Storm

by Hillary DePiano

Comedy. 15-20 minutes. 7-16+ any gender. Suitable for elementary school and older.


Who’s afraid of the Big Bad Storm? Not the little pig with the emergency plan! Now if only the other two would at least do something to save their bacon before the winds and weather come to whoosh and swoosh and knock stuff down. This new twist on the fairy tale classic makes storm safety fun, a comic reminder for audiences of all ages that with the right prep, even the biggest, baddest storms don’t have to be something to fear.

If you’ve read an earlier version of this script, I recommend giving the new version a look because it’s undergone several rounds of revisions since I first announced it. You can read all but the last few pages right now for free here.

If you’d like to grab a copy or license a production, now through September 7th, you can use coupon code LABORDAY25 to take 25% off digital and printed perusal scripts and classroom copy licenses! (The copy licenses almost never go on sale so this is a huge deal!)

This discount applies not only to this new play but to every play on the site including my other recent release, the streaming play Nana’s Happy Happy Good News Only Birthday Video Chat and other older favorites like The Complete Novels of Jane Austen: Now New and Improved!, Masks, and Three Padded Walls as well as anthologies that feature my plays like Bullying, Ink. and Lit on Fire: Twelve Short Parodies of Reading List Classics.
