BABE, THE SHEEP-PIG

BABE, THE SHEEP-PIG

Details

When Farmer Hoggett wins Babe, an orphaned piglet, at the village fair he has no idea about the incredible series of events he has begun.

Adopted by Hoggett’s faithful sheepdog, Fly, the little pig soon settles into farmyard life. But as he begins to find his place amongst the animals, a sudden threat to the sheep flock gives Babe a taste for the thrills of herding and his life is changed forever.

It’s not long before Babe is accompanying the Farmer to his fields every day, and to his delight Hoggett finally asks the question: does this little piglet have what it takes to become a real Sheep-Pig?

In a version by David Wood, ‘the national children’s dramatist’ (The Times), based on the classic children’s novel by Dick King-Smith that warmed our hearts as an Oscar-winning film, Babe, The Sheep-Pig is the perfect summer treat – a farmyard adventure packed with music, puppetry, love and laughter.

Join us for an uplifting family tale of the heights a little pig can reach when an unsuspecting Farmer believes in him.
