ILLYRIA PRESENT BABE THE SHEEP PIG

SMALL BABE pic 1Dick King-Smith’s heartwarming tale of friendship, courage and determination will be brought to life in a family production on the Millennium Green on Sunday 28 July, 7pm

Farmer Hoggett wins a piglet at the fair – and everyone knows what fate awaits piglets raised on a farm. Adopted by Fly the sheepdog, Babe develops his own methods of herding sheep using politeness instead of barking orders, and even saves the flock from being stolen by sheep rustlers. But Farmer Hoggett is a hard man to please – so when Babe is entered for the county sheep dog trials he is going to need Fly’s help, all his wits, and as much politeness as he can muster if he is going to get the sheep to co-operate, win the trials, and save his life.
llyria’s Theatre for Children has one principal aim: great storytelling. Brightly costumed and accompanied by live music, the shows address their audiences in an intelligent, unpatronising and entertaining way.

Bring rugs, low backed chairs and picnics to enjoy a fantastic summer evening on the Millennium Green.

Tickets are available from Bridport Arts Centre box office (01308 424204) or online.
