ACT I – AT GRANDPA’S HOUSE
(Grandpa is in the living room reading a book. Grandson and Granddaughter enter the room/stage running)
GRANDDAUGHTER: Grandpa, Grandpa…put away that book and tell us a story.
GRANDSON: Yes…please Grandpa!
GRANDPA: (puts the book away) Very well…sit next to me…(Granddaughter and Grandson sit next to him) Once upon a time…
GRANDSON: Wait…I need to go to the bathroom!
(Grandson stands and leaves the room/stage)
GRANDDAUGHTER: Don’t stop grandpa…keep telling me the story.
GRANDPA: Once upon a time in a farway land there were three pigs… (the three pigs, and Mrs. Piggy enter the room. They stand in the middle of the room/stage)… the little pig, the medium pig, and the older pig. One day their mother said.
MRS. PIGGY: It’s time that you take care of yourselves.
LITTLE PIG: You’re right, mom!
LITTLE, MEDIUM, OLDER PIG: Yessss! We will be independent! At last we will be free! Yeah!
MIDDLE PIG: We will leave…
OLDER PIG: And build our own house! You’ll see mom…you’ll be proud of us!
(Mrs. Piggy and the three pigs leave the room/stage)
GRANDPA: Next morning, the little pig went to look for some straw to build his house, when suddenly he heard a lion roar.
GRANDDAUGHTER: A lion? Are you sure there’s a lion in the story?
(Lion enters and sits on the floor in the middle of the room/stage. He starts to cry, at the same time the Little Pig enters from the other side of the room/stage)
GRANDPA: Yes…the little pig heard a cowardly lion roaring!
LITTLE PIG: Why are you crying?
LION: Because I’m scared…I am a coward!
LITTLE PIG: You remind me of the lion from the Wizard of Oz…he was also scared.
LION: He was my brother… but he got famous…and I’m not.
LITTLE PIG: Could you help me find some straw to make a house?
LION: (pointing to the floor) Look over there…there’s some straw…take all you need.
LITTLE PIG: Thank you! (he picks up some straw from the floor)
LION: Can I go with you? I’t just that… I feel so sad and lonely.
LITTLE PIG: Sure…you can even help me build my house! Come on!
(The Little Pig and the Lion leave the room/stage)
GRANDPA: (yawning and closing his eyes) And the little pig started to build his house.
GRANDDAUGHTER: (shaking her grandpa) Wake up! Don’t fall asleep…tell me what happened next!
GRANDPA: (opens his eyes) Where was I? Oh, yes…then, the middle pig went to a hardware store to buy some wood.
(Pinocchio enters and stands in the middle of the room/stage. The Middle Pig enters from the other side of the room/stage)
MIDDLE PIG: Excuse me, mister…
MIDDLE PIG: (surprised) Mr. Pinocchio? Pinocchio the wooden puppet? Pinocchio…the one from the story… Pinocchio…?
PINOCCHIO: Mmm… yes… that’s me!
MIDDLE PIG: What are you doing here selling wood?
PINOCCHIO: I’m helping Geppetto….my dad. But tell me…how many wood boards do you need?
MIDDLE PIG: Fifty, please.
PINOCCHIO: (he turns his back on the pig) Let me see…mmm… (he turns around facing the pig) Sorry, but I don’t have any wood right now.
MIDDLE PIG: (staring at Pinocchio’s nose) It seems like your nose is growing…a lot…that means that you’re lying to me…and ….
PINOCCHIO: (touching his nose) Alright, alright! I have a lot of wood. (He turns his back on the pig, and he gives the wood boards to the pig) Here! Take them…now, get out of here!
MIDDLE PIG: How much is it?
PINOCCHIO: Well…let’s see…wood is getting quite expensive…there are almost no trees in the forest, and my dad brings it from a faraway forest…
MIDDLE PIG: (staring at Pinocchio’s nose) Your nose keeps growing…and growing!
PINOCCHIO: (touching his nose) Take the wood…I give it to you, you don’t have to pay for it…I’ll even help you carry it!
MIDDLE PIG: Oh, thanks a lot!
(Middle Pig and Pinocchio leve the room/stage carrying the wood)
GRANDPA: Then the Older Pig went to a hardware store.
(Little Red Riding Hood enters and she stands in the middle of the room/stage. Older Pig enters from the other side of the room/stage)
OLDER PIG: Hello, Little Red Riding Hood!
LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD: How can I help you?
OLDER PIG: I need some bricks and some bags of cement to build my house.
LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD: Sure! How many do you need?
OLDER PIG: One thousand two hundred bricks, and ten bags of cement.
LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD: Come with me to the warehouse…and I’ll send everything to your place. Oh…I almost forgot…be careful with the wolf…he’s roaming in the forest…and he’s very hungry!
OLDER PIG: Are you talking about the wolf who tricked you?
LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD: Yes! The one that ate my dear grandmother! His lawyer got him free from jail, and he’s hiding somewhere in the forest.
OLDER PIG: Mmm……I’m worried about my little brothers…I have to hurry up.
(Little Red Riding Hood and Older Pig leave the room/stage)
GRANDPA: And that’s how the three pigs started to build their houses. A few weeks later…
(There are three houses on stage. The three pigs enter and they stand in front of their own houses)
LITTLE PIG: I finally finished muy beautiful house made of straw!
MIDDLE PIG: My house made of wood is better than yours!
CERDITO PEQUEÑO: Sure…better for wood moths! Ha, ha, ha, ha.
MIDDLE PIG: Yours…better for cows! Ha, ha, ha, ha.
OLDER PIG: Stop fighting your two…my house…is the best!
LITTLE PIG: Well, what really matters is that we have a nice place to live in. Mom will be proud of us!
GRANDPA: The three pigs didn’t notice that the wolf was hiding behind a tree…and he was watching them closely….
GRANDDAUGHTER: Oh grandpa, I’m so scared!
GRANDPA: …And smacking his lips at the thought of a fine pig dinner.
WOLF: (smacking his lips) I’m so hungry…and tonight I’ll have pork chops for dinner!
GRANDPA: So he decided to talk to the pigs.
WOLF: Little pig come here…I have something for you!
LITTLE PIG: It’s the wolf…run home dear brothers!
GRANDPA: And the three pigs went inside their houses.
GRANDDAUGHTER: Oh…and the wolf?
GRANDPA: The wolf stood outside the house of the little pig.
WOLF: I’ll blow, and I’ll blow and your straw house I’ll destroy! Ha, ha, ha, ha.
LITTLE PIG: No, please NO!
GRANDPA: And the bad wolf blew and blew, until the house in many straw pieces he blew down.
LITTLE PIG: I’ll run and I’ll run and I’ll hide in my brother’s wood house!
WOLF: And I’ll blow and I’ll blow and his house I’ll also destroy! Ha, ha, ha, ha.
GRANDPA: The little pig knocked at the door of his medium brother…
LITTLE PIG: Dear brother, dear brother! The bad wolf wants to catch me and eat me and your wood house he wants to destroy!
MIDDLE PIG: (opens the door) Hurry up and come inside!
GRANDPA: The wolf stood outside the house of the middle pig.
WOLF: I’ll blow and I’ll blow….and you better come out or your wood house I’ll also destroy! Ha, ha, ha, ha.
LITTLE AND MIDDLE PIG: No, no we won’t!
GRANDPA: The wolf blew and blew until the house in many wood pieces he blew down.
LITTLE AND MIDDLE PIG: Let’s run to our older brother’s house!
GRANDPA: And they knocked at the house of his older brother.
LITTLE AND MIDDLE PIG: Help us brother, and open the door! The bad wolf wants to catch us and eat us and your brick house he wants to destroy!
OLDER PIG: (opens the door) Hurry up and come inside!
LITTLE AND MIDDLE PIG: Thanks dear brother!
GRANDPA: The wolf stood outside the house of the older pig.
WOLF: I’ll blow and I’ll blow…and you better come out or your brick house I’ll also destroy! Ha, ha, ha, ha.
GRANDPA: The bad wolf blew and blew until he fainted.
LITTLE, MIDDLE, AND OLDER PIG: (getting out of the house) Hooray!
GRANDPA: (yawns and closes his eyes) This was the story of the three pigs.
GRANDSON: I’m back! Did I miss something?
GRANDDAUGHTER: (standing) Yes…the whole story…and grandpa fell asleep!
GRANDSON: (shaking grandpa) No, grandpa wake up!
GRANDDAUGHTER: (takes his brother by the arm) Come on…we have homework to do.
