An hilarious blend of fairytale characters and the Christchurch rebuild in this fun-filled family show.

Mrs Sow’s pigsty is bursting at the seams so her teenage triplets decide to build their own houses. They call on Master Builder Bob and a mate in the Council for consent but will they get approval?

Meanwhile, on the farm, the three Goats Gruff find out the truth about the ugly troll, the three Bears have a pie stolen and a silly little lamb keeps asking, “Are you my Mother?”

Come and enjoy this mixed-up musical play, let the kids wear dress-up, bring a picnic and indulge in a family day out!
