Who's afraid of the big, bad… coyote?! A favorite tale gets a southwestern spin in this world-premiere stage adaptation of Susan Lowell’s picture book. But don’t call them pigs! The Three Javelinas are more than just straw, sticks and bricks. Josefina Javelina dreams of a career on stage. Juan wants a quiet place to think. And as for José—he just wants someone to listen to his jokes! When a series of misadventures leave them to build houses in the desert, they catch the attention of a hungry coyote. This musical tribute to the Arizona landscape will delight audiences of all ages.
