Road Trip to Halifax

After our last show in Cape Breton in 2013, The Three Little Pigs traveled to Halifax with Team Possibles! Look for their version of the show in Halifax in the spring of 2014.

Wrap Party - April 2013

After the last performance, we all gathered for a meal, some cake, and a lot of laughs.

We had a puppet interviewer on The Red Carpet as our audience arrived! Derek Gallant did a great job capturing everything!

Photo Shoot of Cast Members

Each of the cast members had a personal photo shoot with our photographer, Derek Gallant (The Winning Shot Photography). Here are some of the pictures from these sessions.

Recording Pig Music

We had three original full length songs composed and recorded for our show. Here are a few pictures from the recording session for the song "Pig Paradise". Jalen Borden was the songwriter and rapper. The song was recorded at Soundpark Studios, Jamie Foulds, engineering.

Three Little Pig Puppets

We have five life-sized puppets: DJ Jazzy Hogg, Beoinkse Hogg, and Mick Hogg, BB Wolf and, of course, Mr. WeirdBeard. Our puppeteers wear the puppets, using special harnesses and straps that connect arms to arms and legs to legs. The puppeteers are dressed in black, so that they will be invisible under black light.

Puppet Making

Lorna MacLean and I worked on the puppets together. We used these two books to get us started: The Foam Book : An Easy Guide to Building Polyfoam Puppets by Donald Devet, Drew Allison, and Puppet Planet: The Most Amazing Puppet-Making Book in the Universe by John Kennedy. Then we started cutting foam and hot gluing and just figured it out.

The First Meet-N-Greet

Late April, 2011, the WeirdBeard Troupe Society held it's inaugural meeting at the McConnell Library in Sydney. It was open to the public and all those interested in learning more were encouraged to attend.
