9/22/09


West Windsor, N.J. -- Watch out Simon Cowell. There's a new talent show coming to town. Join Kaleidoscope Theatre for an original and thoroughly modern take on "The Three Pigs" at Mercer County Community College's Kelsey Theatre Saturday, Oct. 17 at 2 and 4 p.m. Kelsey Theatre is located on Mercer's West Windsor campus at 1200 Old Trenton Road.

In this topsy turvy retelling of the popular classic, the Three Pigs dream of auditioning for the Barnyard Idol Show. Enter a big, bad Elvis-type Wolf who steals their audition ticket. Will they get their ticket back in time? Can Mama Pig save them from the Wolf? Will the Pigs make it big in show business? These questions and more will be answered in this zany, humorous musical that's perfect entertainment for the whole family!

Based in Rhode Island, Kaleidoscope Theatre was founded in 1977 to create and perform educational plays and workshops for youngsters from elementary to high school. Adding musical fairytales to its repertoire in 1982, the company counts comical, enriching family entertainment as a cornerstone of its mission.
