A Brief History
During the design process of the children’s book Piggy Nation: A Day At Work With Dad, author Richard Rosser began reading his book to elementary school classes, which led to performing assemblies for large groups of students. The kids responded so positively that it inspired Rosser to adapt the story into a full-length musical. Expanding on the children’s book, he added elements of romance and intrigue. With composer Alec Wells (theoutsidejoke.com), the two crafted a musical richly layered with Blues, Rock, Rap and Gospel influences.
