NARRATOR:
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.)

CLASSIC PIG:
Greetings everyone.

NARRATOR:
The middle pig who is very enthusiastic…

JOCK PIG:
Hey there!

NARRATOR:
And the youngest pig who is down to earth…

COWBOY PIG:
Howdy!

NARRATOR:
On this particular day, the pigs are setting off to see the world. The oldest pig says…

CLASSIC PIG:
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.

JOCK PIG:
Yeah! Let’s do it! We’ve got this! (Excitedly as if cheering for a team.)

COWBOY PIG:
Sure thing.

CLASSIC PIG:
Are you two sure you’re going to be okay on your own?

JOCK PIG:
Yeah! Let’s do it! I’ve got this! (Again, excited)

COWBOY PIG:
Sure thing.

CLASSIC PIG:
Well then. Adieu!

(They wave and exit in different directions)

NARRATOR:
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.)

WOLF:
(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)

NARRATOR:
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.
