Freckles Theatre is bringing the wonderful world of Jillian Jiggs to the stage, at The Arts Station.
Jillian Jiggs is the main character of a series of books by Phoebe Gilman.
“It’s normally a sold out event,” said Oz Parsons, administrator at The Arts Station. “So get your tickets early.”
The play is geared to children ages 4 and up.
Jillian Jiggs was born out of a mother goose rhyme about Gregory Griggs who had 27 different wigs.
After drawing Gregory Griggs with his wigs, Gilman realized he looked more like a girl, and Gregory wasn’t a good name for a girl.
Gilman decided with the help of her editor at Scholastic that Gillian Giggs should be Jillian Jiggs.
Jillian Jiggs has gone on to star in several books such as The Wonderful Pigs of Jillian Jiggs, Jillian Jiggs to the Rescue and Jillian Jiggs and the Secret Surprise.
“The Freckles Theatre presentations are always very popular and a lot of fun,” said Parsons.
Each play is about 30 minutes. There will be two shows on Friday, at 5 p.m. and 6 p.m.
Tickets are now available at The Arts Station and are $4 per person.
