“If you give a pig a party on some sunny afternoon, what’s the first thing she will ask you? She will ask you for balloons!”

Dallas Children’s Theater launches its 11th national tour with a world premier musical adaptation of author Laura Numeroff’s popular book, “If You Give a Pig a Party,” about the irresistible adventures of a darling pig and her lovable friends.

Festivity and friendship reign supreme in this delightful performance. With live musical accompaniment and outrageous physical comedy, audiences are in for a compelling theatrical experience.

When a young girl decides to throw a party for the Pig for no special reason, it isn’t long before the raucous entertainment begins. A motley group of friends are invited: Mouse, Moose, Cat, Dog and Snake. Before the party even starts these curious and energetic chums soon lead the Girl on a whirlwind of adventures, creating much more work than she had anticipated.

Will it be the best day ever for this silly bunch, or a disaster in the making?

Come see what happens when you mix shadow puppets, bicycles, bumper cars, pillow fights, ballet and ice cream. Don’t miss “If You Give a Pig a Party,” playing at the Reif Center on Friday, Jan. 25 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $15 for adults, $14 for seniors and $8 for students. Tickets may be purchased at Reed Drug or the Reif Center Box Office, by calling 218-327-5780 or visiting www.reifcenter.org.
