Welcome Welcome to THE TRUE STORY OF THE 3 LITTLE PIGS! It’s our favorite time of the year, when we get to welcome our youngest audiences to experience the magic of live theatre. Seeing theatre through the eyes of children is a beautiful reminder of why we do what we do. The transformative experience of seeing a play can be something you carry with you throughout your entire life. On the first day of rehearsal, we asked the actors if they could recall their earliest theatre memories... ed the erienc r of theatre h p x e t s “I fir and powe of the 25t beauty h the airingrmance throug rsary perfo on PBS annive MISÉRABLES I was of LES oung child. ired, and as a y erized, insp y Jeanne mesm rted.” – Beck conve

TITLE I ARTS EDUCATION PROGRAM One of the most rewarding aspects of our season is our annual children’s show and Title I Arts Education Program. This invaluable program allows over 1,700 underprivileged schoolchildren to experience the magic of live theatre at no cost to them or their schools. With arts education receiving less and less attention and funding, this program plays a vital role in providing a more wellrounded education to Utah students. Every children’s play that SLAC produces is based on a literary work. SLAC creates a study guide to accompany each play and distributes it to every class that attends the Title I Arts Education Program. The guide includes learning activities to be completed before and after the children see the play, reinforcing the connection between literacy and the arts. After the children watch the show, they are treated to a Q&A with the actors, providing the opportunity to ask about theatre, acting, the story, and the elements of the performance. Tiya Karaus, a second-grade teacher from Washington Elementary said of SLAC’s Title I Arts Education Program, “We look forward to seeing a play at SLAC each year. My students have little or no experience with live theatre before attending a performance. We love every moment of the experience, especially being able to ask questions after the show.”

SLAC’s 2017 Title I Arts Education Program will serve the following Title I schools:

Edison Elementary Franklin Elementary Kearns-Saint Ann Liberty Elementary Meadowlark Elementary Mountain View Elementary Newman Elementary North Star Elementary Open Classroom Park View Elementary Rose Park Elementary Washington Elementary

THE TRUE STORY OF THE 3 LITTLE PIGS

In The Room with

Penelope Caywood & her daughter Presley, SLAC'S Kid Connection

Penny (Mom): Presley, would you please introduce yourself for the program? PJ: Mom, how am I going to top what I said last year? Mom: Last year you were nine. Lots has happened. Give it a try. PJ: Hi! I’m Presley. I’m 10 years old. My favorite school subject is math. When I grow up I want to be a news reporter. I think Salt Lake Acting Company is great and my mom has been working on the children’s show for nine years. I think that’s awesome. She spends a lot of time with her shows even before rehearsals and it’s pretty cool how committed she is. My mom is also a director at Youth Theatre at the U. It’s kinda cool how this job intermingles with the other job in a great way. Mom: How is that? PJ: Well, you are either working with kids or for kids. Mom: So, you know the show I’m working on is based on The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs, right? Do you believe the wolf’s plea? PJ: No, I don’t actually believe that he’s being truthful in what he’s saying. Mom: Do you think it’s fair that the wolf had to go to a pig court and not a wolf court? PJ: Yeah, I don’t think that part is very fair. I feel like it’s kind of discriminating against him. But, it was already unfair because his story wasn’t true. And then, super unfair because the pigs were like, “You’re a wolf and we’re not going to listen to you, dude.” Y’know? Mom: How do you know which story

16

is true and who to believe? The pigs' version or the wolf's version? PJ: Um … I don’t KNOW what story is true. I’m just going off my opinions of what I think, personally. My opinion is that the wolf is probably lying through most of this about what he’s done. Mom: So, with that in mind do you have suggestions for me in the direction of the show? PJ: I think you should cast the show in such a way in which the wolf is a loveable guy so that people really like him - so they will fall in love with him, then when they realize what he’s done they’re like .... BOOM … that sucked. Not like your show sucked - um … like the wolf was not cool and they were tricked, y’know? Mom: Why do you want me to trick the audience that way? Do you think that actually happens in real court cases? PJ: Um … it really depends. If someone did something wrong and they hire a lawyer to help them in court then they’re probably going to lie about something. But does the wolf even have a lawyer in your show? Mom: He doesn’t. PJ: Yeah, so, I’m pretty sure he’s lying … well, if the wolf turns out not guilty, that’s totally great, too. I guess it could go either way from whatever point of view you have. Um … but in my personal opinion I don’t believe the wolf. Mom: Okay, I see what you’re saying. Any other suggestions? PJ: You need levels in the courtroom. The judge, yeah, that’s what they’re called, should be higher than the rest

www.saltlakeactingcompany.org


of the cast. I mean, do they all have to sing and dance? A staircase might be a good idea for the judge. And it could be cool if you had like an actual courtroom podium for the judge. Mom: The judge’s bench. PJ: Yeah, like a real courtroom. It would make it look much more official and fun for the people watching it, I think. Um … and maybe just have chairs for the other actors that they can quickly move when they have to dance. Mom: Any advice for the actors? PJ: Um … like in general? Mom: Yeah. You’ve been to my rehearsals and in my youth theatre productions. PJ: DON’T DEFY MY MOTHER BECAUSE YOU’LL BE SORRY. Mom: Woah. (laughing) You make me sound super mean. PJ: Well, your actors have probably done other professional shows but they should think about your show like going back to school. Follow directions first time asked - and if you’re not good then it’s going to be hard for them. Mom: (still in shock and laughing) PJ: So, basically, your actors shouldn’t have a bad attitude. Mom: (still laughing) Wow. Just wow. I love my actors! How about something positive? PJ: Um … well, have these actors done shows for kids before? Because if they haven’t they need to know to please not make big faces and gasp a lot. I know that happens on little kid tv shows and they may see that and think, “Oh, this is what kids like,” but there are going to be elementary school kids in the audience and that’s just not very entertaining. Even some of the little kids who come won’t like the fake gasping

THE TRUE STORY OF THE 3 LITTLE PIGS

and big eyes. So they should try to avoid that. But otherwise, try and have a lot of fun. If you haven’t done theatre for kids before and it’s a whole new experience for you, then try to enjoy it. I like watching actors who look like they like what they do. Mom: What are your thoughts about SLAC? PJ: So, SLAC is a very nice theatre. I love the kind of vibe it gives off. I’ve been going there for a long time. Obviously, I haven’t seen all the shows there, but all the people who work there are very lovely. And when you go to SLAC it’s different from other theatres because it feels more like a community. Kind of like a family. The casts and the people who work there all have a bond. So when you go into SLAC it’s a very welcoming environment. And they do sell concessions so if you get peckish then you can go right down to get a treat. Mom: Peckish, huh? PJ: Yes. I love your shows at SLAC during the holidays.

FUN HOME

by Taylor Mac February 7 – March 11, 2018 Director: Tracy Callahan

Music by Jeanine Tesori Book & lyrics by Lisa Kron Based on the graphic novel by Alison Bechdel Winner of 5 Tony Awards, including Best Musical APRIL 4 – MAY 13 2018 Utah Premiere April 4 – May 13, 2018 Director: Jason Bowcutt Musical Director: David Evanoff Choreographer: Penelope Caywood

Chaos reigns in this gender bending comedy about the most dysfunctional family in America. A dishonorably discharged vet returns home to a mother liberated from an oppressive marriage, a sister on “mones” in the process of transitioning, and a father asleep in a clown costume. And nobody is doing the dishes anymore.

Set in three stages of a woman’s life, FUN HOME tells a universal detective story about a child’s search to discover what is really going on with her parents as they hold up the perfect family façade. Heart-gripping songs about sexual awakening, repressed emotions, deep secrets, yearning, resentment, love. Home.

University Professional Theatre Program SLAC is delighted to partner with local universities to heighten theatre students’ educational experience by taking them out of the classroom and hiring them at a professional theatre. During THE TRUE STORY OF THE 3 LITTLE PIGS, we would like to welcome Jessica Rubin, Wilson Hicken, David Anthony-Ken De Carolis and Aaron Hoenig as a part of the University Professional Theatre Program. “I want to work alongside another costume designer who has more professional experience to help enhance my knowledge of the design process. I hope to learn other professionals’ different techniques and processes of designing a show. This program will really help me practice working alongside others collaborating ideas.” – Jessica Rubin | Assistant Costume Designer | Westminster College

“I hope to come out of this experience being able to have used a wide variety of skills that I have been developing. I hope that this experience pushes me to be able to stretch the boundaries of where I feel comfortable practicing within. I feel that having an experience working with professionals can help illuminate aspects of this field that cannot be experienced within a college setting.” – Wilson Hicken | Assistant Director | University of Utah

“I hope to learn how to work in a professional setting, how to interact with other designers/actors in a professional setting, as well as gain the experience of lighting in a new space.” – David Anthony-Ken De Carolis | Assistant Lighting Designer | University of Utah

I definitely hope to meet more people who work in the field who can give me advice and more opportunities. I also hope to get a lot of experience mixing a show in the professional setting rather than an academic one. I’m also hoping to learn more about different sound systems and how the size of the theatre affects the mix. – Aaron Hoenig | Sound Operator | University of Utah

GREEN ROOM GALLERY

For the eighth year running, we welcome students of all ages from the Visual Art Institute in Salt Lake City to exhibit in the Green Room Gallery during our children’s production — inspired by the school’s efforts to plant the seed of creative curiosity early in life.

Established in 1978, VAI encourages students to integrate their creativity into every aspect of their thinking, education and life, and provides exceptional visual art programs to elementary through high school students, including year-round classes and an intensive figurative workshop in the summer. VAI provides high-quality instruction and classes in a wide range of media focusing on essential applied skills, working largely from life, as well as conceptual thinking. Many VAI students go on to earn local, state, and national awards as well as entrance and scholarships to top universities and art schools throughout the country. You’ll find literature about the Visual Art Institute in the Gallery. Please stop in to enjoy the exhibition.
