You all know the story of the 3 Little Pigs. There is oldest pig who speaks with confidence… (Each pig enters or waves when introduced.)
The middle pig who is very enthusiastic…
And the youngest pig who is down to earth…
On this particular day, the pigs are setting off to see the world. The oldest pig says…
All right brothers. It looks like we’re all ready. It’s time for us to set out into the world to seek our fortune.
Yeah! Let’s do it! We’ve got this! (Excitedly as if cheering for a team.)
Are you two sure you’re going to be okay on your own?
Yeah! Let’s do it! I’ve got this! (Again, excited)
Well then. Adieu!
(They wave and exit in different directions)
The Pigs waved goodbye and set off in different directions to seek their fortune. Meanwhile someone mysterious was lurking nearby.
(The Wolf enters in ‘spy’ fashion, rolling, sneaking, sliding…consider spy-like music.)
(sniffs) Something smells good, like bacon. (Checks his spy watch.) Siri…where is the nearest fast food? KFC? No time for chicken…I’m gonna go find me some bacon! (exit)
And just like that the Wolf was gone. Now remember, the Pigs were traveling alone now. Each searching for the perfect spot to set up a house of their own.
