Booster Cushion Theatre is presenting Old McDonald and the 3 Pigs Plus… in the theatre on the rec. There is a Jubilee Queen section where a child will be crowned and will be wished a Happy Jubilee on behalf of the Queen.

‘Old McDonald and the Three Pigs Plus…’ weaves the well known story of the Three Pigs with the easy to learn rhyme Old McDonald Had A Farm. Featuring a 5m wide book with 2m pop ups, bright colourful pages and lots of silly animal props.

The Three Pigs are fed up with singing “Eee aye eee aye oh!” every day and bravely decide to move away from Old McDonald’s farm. Join the kind farmer and all of their animal friends in helping the little pigs build homes of their own, but beware, the big bad Wolf is on the prowl. Can you help save the day and stop the wolf blowing all the pigs’ hard work away?
