The New Jersey Theatre Alliance and Burlington County Library will present Centenary Stage Company’s production of If You Give a Pig a Pancake on Saturday, March 16th at 2:00pm. This event is part of The Stages Festival, an annual statewide program that provides discounted and free theatre performances, workshops and events throughout the month of March.  This performance will be Free.

From the repertoire of Laura Numeroff, If You Give A Pig a Pancake follows the enterprising journey of a young girl who accommodates the demands of a quirky piglet after eating pancakes. Their adventure is an escapade which becomes embroiled in taking a bubble bath, a little tap dance, taking a photo, mailing a letter, building a tree house, and of course, going back for more pancakes.

The Stages Festival is a statewide event offering free and discounted tickets to performances, workshops, classes and events at the states professional theatres, partner performing arts centers, as well as in non-tradition venues like libraries, schools, senior centers and museums.  The program was developed to encourage New Jersey’s residents to attend their local professional theatres by making the experience affordable, accessible and fun. 

All across the state, patrons will receive free and discounted tickets to over 100 performances and special events, including classes, and workshops for all ages.  Since its inception in 1998, the program has served over 80,000 people. 

This event is offered free of charge, and reservations are necessary for this event.  For more information, or to make a reservation, call 609-267-9660Burlington County Library is located at 5 Pioneer Boulevard, in Westampton, NJ 08060 .  To receive a full schedule of events for The Stages Festival please visit
