Babe, The Sheep-Pig 

Presented by Forest Moon Theater
Saturday, November 4, 2017 1:26:00 PM

Thursday - Sunday, Nov. 16-19

Forest Moon Theater will present Babe, The Sheep-Pig at the Wake Forest Renaissance Centre Thursday, Nov. 16, through Sunday, Nov. 19.

When Farmer Hogget wins a pig named Babe at the county fair and brings him home to fatten up (for reasons we will not discuss), the farm is never again the same. With the help of an aging sheep dog, Babe discovers his talent for herding, politely convincing the sheep to follow his lead. His new-found skills are put to the test when the farmer enters him in the Grand Sheep-dog Trials.

Will Babe be toasted or roasted? It’s the question of the day that’s answered in the play.

Babe, the Sheep-Pig by David Wood and based on the book by Dick King-Smith. Presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
