VAN WERT — Van Wert Civic Theatre will present Twelve Angry Pigs under the direction of Monica Campbell. Families are invited to attend the performances July 30 and 31 at 7:30 p.m. and Aug. 1 at 2 p.m.

In this comedic parody of Twelve Angry Men, a certain wolf is on trial for blowing down a pair of houses owned by the Three Little Pigs. A Jury of Swine must now decide if they will convict, or declare the wolf not guilty. Most of the angry pigs believe the wolf is big and bad. However, some storybook characters help the pigs review the facts, and Juror #8 asks some tough questions that will make the rest of the pigs realize that the testimony of Little Girl Blue is nothing but hogwash.

The cast of Lulu Bash-Ross, Lola Campbell, Vaydah Deming, Harmony Dillon, Kortnie Galloway, Beth Garrett, Shawn German, Connor Johnson, Elizabeth Johnson, Meah Johnson, Sydney King, Brody Kreischer, Dante Lippi, Ivy Lippi, Hannah McKenzie, Abbie Mengerink, Colt Morrow, Natalie Palazzolo, Nora Perkins, Evie Petrie, Lea Rode, and Emerson Roy bring these characters to life.

Tickets will go on sale Monday, July 26 and are $10 for all seats. Tickets can be purchased online at vwct.org, or by calling 419-238-9689 to leave a voicemail.
