'The Magic Mrs. Piggle Wiggle' opens at Studio East

Studio East will present "The Magic Mrs. Piggle Wiggle," a musical comedy adapted from Betty MacDonald's delightful series of children's books about the antics of her zany character, the beloved Mrs. Piggle Wiggle. Mrs. Piggle Wiggle loves children and they love her. Even better, she also knows exactly how to get rid of their bad manners. No matter what the problem, Mrs. Piggle Wiggle will always have the perfect (and hilarious) solution.
   "The Magic Mrs. Piggle Wiggle" is recommended for ages six and up. The production is directed by Studio East's artistic director, Lani Brockman. It opens on Dec. 8 and runs through Dec. 23 at the Studio East Theatre, 402 6th Street South, Kirkland.
   Performances are Thursday, (Dec. 31 only), Friday, and Saturday at 7:30 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $7-$10. Opening night gala tickets are $10 and $15. To order tickets, please call the Studio East box office at (425) 827-3123.
