Simon Webbe in The Three Little Pigs at the Palace Theatre
The Adaptation of the Classic Fable Arriving in London from Duo George Stiles and Anthony Drewe
A brand new musical heads to the West End this summer and it will be one that will offer a memorable trip to the theatre for younger audiences. The Three Little Pigs, a new musical from George Stiles and Anthony Drewe, is set to begin performances at the Palace Theatre in August.
The classic fable is known to those all over the world, but this musical version will take the original text and provide it with a new spin, not only with some toe-tapping songs but also with a unique take on the story itself.
And leading the cast is Simon Webbe, best known for his work with the boyband Blue. He will play the Wolf in the production in a story that sees him confront those three pigs. In this version of the story the events make them into celebrities around the world as they try to make it in the big bad world. Their home is full and they must leave to make some space and build some houses of their own – houses that must stand up to the Wolf.
Blue star Simon Wolfe has enjoyed a busy career, not only as a member of the famous boyband but also for his appearances in numerous television programmes and films. Whilst he released numerous albums and singles with Blue, many of which reached high chart positions and made the group famous, he has also appeared in the films Rollin’ With The Nines and The Truth About Love. Meanwhile, television viewers will recognise his parts in shows like Strictly Come Dancing, Big Brother and more. So he will clearly offer audiences a familiar face when he plays the Wolf at the Palace Theatre.
Meanwhile, audiences might also recognise the names of Stiles and Drewe, a duo with great success adapting stories like Goldilocks And The Three Bears, Mary Poppins and Peter Pan.
The Three Little Pigs runs at the Palace Theatre during the day from Wednesday 5th August 2015. It joins many shows for kids in the West End, from I Believe In Unicorns to Horrible Histories: Barmy Britain Part 3.
