Barnyard Madness with the Three Pigs is a zany 1940s Country and Western romp and toe-tapping, finger-snapping musical comedy that follows the romantic antics and show business aspirations of the singing McPig Sisters and their wolverine admirers, proving once and for all that true friendship does not depend on size, color, background, nationality or even "species." A cross between "Grand Ole Opry", "The Three Little Pigs", and drawing from all the happy moments of "Romeo & Juliet", Barnyard Madness offers humorous, yet keen, insights into the dangers of falling in with the "wrong crowd," the deceptive nature of stereotypes, and the importance of following your heart. Barnyard Madness is one of fifteen original fairy tales that are part of the Santa Monica Playhouse award-winning Family Theatre Musical Matinee Series that cut across the imaginary generation gap by providing an experience that the entire family can enjoy.
