Flexible cast of 15, plus extras if desired "If you see any birthday parties today, let me know. It might be mine," moans the despondent piggy Oinkie to her friends, two hens and a rooster. It's her sixth birthday, but everyone - including her mother, father, and brother and sister, Pigtail and Pigsty - seems to have forgotten. It's no wonder that she cries, "Wee, wee, wee" all the way home. And what about the "little piggy that went to the market," the one who "stayed home," and the ones who "had roast beef" and "had none?" They're all here, along with a human mother who relates the delightful and charming story to her young daughter - who happens to be having her own surprise birthday party. In the end the parties of the pigs and persons merge in a cheerful and lively song and dance. Upbeat and enchanting!
