There are 37 cast members in the production that will be held this weekend, each with their own unique costume. Ducks, chickens, cows, and of course, pigs, create a lively ensemble that brings the story to life.

But beneath the surface of the production, some say the message it brings is more relevant than ever.

“It’s definitely timely,” said student Chris Cullen. “With all the rebellions in the Middle East and Occupy Wall Street, a lot more people are taking a stand for what the animals didn’t.”
