“A hard-material piece of puppetry” is the subtitle of the text written by Igor Bojović who has provided his version of the famous fable about three piglets in a playful and educational way, but also dealt with the topic of abandoned pets. The puppet show, which enchants equally children and parents, was directed by Dragoslav Todorović. Hungry and more cunning Fox and Wolf are in charge for tension and suspense till the very end, but our dear Gudonije, Trutonije and Cica Gica will still succeed in saving themselves with the wholehearted help of parrot Archibald and ... well let it be a secret for now!

A WORD FROM THE DIRECTOR:
One day I was sitting in a cosy place when Igor Bojović jumped in front of me and pushed under my nose the musical for children "Peter Pan.” I recovered from the shock, read the text and I really liked it. I ran to Pinocchio Theatre and staged the story of this eternal boy. The second time I was going to a pastry shop when I saw Igor Bojović sitting on a tree, nibbling seeds and throwing his texts at me. And surprisingly enough, in the first attempt he hit me with a portable fairy tale for the portable world - "Little Red Riding Hood". As I was reading the text, Igor Bojović flew away somewhere high. I finished reading, jumped for joy, get into the car and headed to Novi Sad - Youth Theatre. Good morning - good morning, what do you think of Little Red Riding Hood? All the best, they told me and we created a performance enthusiastically. I went back to Belgrade with the intention to have a good rest, but I found some papers stuck all over my façade. I took the ladders to get up - down, up - down and read the musical fairy tale "The Emperor's Nightingale". Well done. What to do, where to go - I went to Pinocchio Puppet Theatre. The then theatre manager waited for me at the entrance door with salt and bread, brought me to the stage and left me there with the actors to create a performance based on this lovely text. Fed up with being scared by this Bojović guy, I gave him the secret code "Three Little Piglets". And he immediately responded: Here’s a hard-material piece of puppetry... and here we are in Little Theatre Duško Radović presenting a fresh performance made of a fresh text! By the way, since i had that experience with the Little Red Riding Hood, I haven’t been going to pastry shops, but I bake cakes by myself. Sometimes less and sometimes more successfully!!!
