    You must have to be a member, I couldn't find any story cards here. I found a few things at the printables section. Otherwise it seemed like you had to be a member. The link above did not give me a direct link to the cards...can you give a direct link?

    For characters you have:

    3 Little Pigs
    1 Moma Pig
    3 people with wheel barrows (one each straw, wood, and bricks)
    1 Big bad wolf
    2 Big puffs of wind (that the wolf blows)
    3 house (so that they can blow down the two)
    1 Narrartor

    If you don't want to have children be houses you can have a few narrators.

    This is a fun play and I did if with my class a few years ago.

    Costumes:
    Paint the back of an old board pink and glue on ears to make a pig headband.

    Wolf: Do the same with brown or black

    Wind: cut tagboard into a "blowing" shape and glue on cotton balls and glitter.

    Narrators: Mine always make special hats or visors

    Wheel barrrow people (can use a wagon instead) have them wear bibber overalls (or whatever matches the illustrations in your book)

    HOuses: Use tagboard and cut into house shapes glue on grass, twigs, or have them draw bricks.

    I used a witches caldern for the pot of boiling water.

    You can use different types of blocks to put in the wheel barrow.

    Have fun!

    K's at my old school do "The 3 Piggy Opera" every year. SO cute, and the kind of show that you can easily incorporate a bigger or smaller class with. It IS all in song, but it's all rhyming, and pretty repetitive, so it's easy to learn... and they get to learn a bit about opera, too. It's written FOR young kids.

    This appears to be a link to order: http://www.millikenpub.com/store/customer/product.php?productid=1179&cat=

    but here is a link to lyrics and such: http://www.snoqualmie.k12.wa.us/schools/Opstad/Songs/3PiggyOpera/Overture.htm

    Hope that helps. ;)

    Our grade ones performed "The 3 Piggy Opera" last year as well and it was a big hit! They spent a long time making the 3 houses (had grade 7 and 8 students to help), but they are in the storage room at school ready to be used again.

    my daughters pre-K did the play and it was great. The props were very simple. All the kids had something to do. Some took tickets from the parents. some handed out programs at the event, some handed out small snacks (pretzles in dixie cups), some handed out apple juice. At the end of the play they all sang some piggy songs together as a class.

    It's Over!

    The play is over....phew! :eek: The students did a good job! I'll try to put a picture with this post! Thanks for all of your help! It was greatly appreciated. We had a good time and the parents enjoyed it. (However, it was a TON of work on my part. I'm not sure if I'll do a play again. If I do....I will have a "set crew" made up of parents who are responsible for the houses and background, a "prop crew" who has to get all the little things for the play gathered up. It was a lot of work in the midst of everything else going on!)

    well, after further review, I don't know how to put a picture in here!

    Thanks for your help!
