When Pigs Fly gets its title from costume designer Howard Crabtree's "dream autobiography." Howard's Missouri high school guidance counselor, Miss Roundhole, advises him to get a real job and give up his obsession with theatre. He dreams of putting on lavish musical extravaganzas like Florenz Ziegfeld, only gay. Miss Roundhole tells him that he'll make it on Broadway "when pigs fly." But Crabtree holds onto his dream, for he knows he has a unique skill. He has the uncanny ability to take the most mundane items -- like a shower hose, toilet plungers, vanity tables -- and turn them into fabulous costumes. He uses his God-given talents to prove Miss Roundhole wrong. The results are hysterical and make for a fun-filled evening of great music, uproarious laughter, and high camp. Rick Simas directs.
When Pigs Fly is an official event of San Diego Pride.
There is an additional performance Monday, August 7 performance at 7:30pm.
