Piggy Nation The Musical Live In New York City-A Review

*This sponsored post was written by me on behalf of Piggy Nation The Musical.  All opinions are 100% mine.

    This past week, my family and I had the distinct pleasure of attending the show Piggy Nation The Musical at Jerry Orbach Theater at the Snapple Theater Center.  We were all very excited to see the live show, especially my seven-year old who loves to sing and enjoys any opportunity to see live singing.  As a matter of fact, he loves to sing so much that his music teacher approached us towards the end of the school year and suggested that we look into getting him a voice coach because he sings so beautifully.

    Piggy Nation is an hour long musical that centers around a piglet named Sammy Hamhock who goes to work with his dad on Piggy Patrol.  His father hands out tickets to the citizens of their town for “Piggy behavior” or any behavior that is considered rude or inconsiderate of others.  As he spent the day with his father, Sammy realized that nobody’s perfect and that we all make the mistake of acting like a “piggy” sometimes, even his own dad!

    My husband and I loved the way the characters taught our boys important lessons about minding their manners and considering the feelings of others in a way that was easy for them to understand.  The colorful cast dressed like different animal characters combined with the original score of music infused with blues, pop, rock, rap and gospel keeps younger and older kids spellbound and engaged in the show.

    We also enjoyed the humorous situations that characters like Captain Dana Deerling, Fanny Flamingo, Carl Crowson and Oliver Oxley found themselves in throughout the show!  It is a brilliant way to get kids to learn valuable lessons while  making them laugh and keeping them entertained.  All of us adults in the audience also found ourselves laughing along with our children.

    I recommend that you take your own family to watch Piggy Nation The Musical in New York City!  Piggy Nation The Musical is based on the award-winning children’s book Piggy Nation A Day At Work With Dad by Richard Rosser with illustrations by Shane Sowell.  This means you can use the book to continue discussing the lessons that are portrayed in the show with your children after you get home!  Get your tickets today!

    That looks like so much fun! I have a background in children’s theatre, both as a child actress and as an adult performer, and it is WONDERFUL!!!! It looks like you guys had a blast, and I’ll bet the kids learned a lot while having fun. 🙂

  2. Crystal Threeprincesandaprince says

    This sounds like a blast! I bet you all had a great time.

  3. How cute! I love taking my kids to live shows too, they are always enthralled by them. And of course it’s a special bonus when the show contains important life lessons the kids can take away with them when the show ends.

  4. Daisy Tremorev says

    That looks like fun. I’d love to take my son as I think he would really enjoy this.

  5. I hope I get the opportunity to see this. I love shows that teach valuable lessons like this. I am now hungry for beans with hamhock which is not probably the intent of this show but never the less…..I do wish more venues would focus on teaching kids that no one is perfect and we all have issues that can be over looked and accepted instead of ostracized for it.

  6. Aww, that sounds really cute! I bet your seven year old loved to hear the singing and what a great way to teach manners!

    I have never heard of his production, but I like that they teach important lessons about minding manners and considering the feelings of others.
