Hobart is a little pig with a big dream: he wants to be a tap dancer. There’s just one problem; Hobart and his talented siblings Wilfred, Violet, and Byron are scheduled for a trip to the City Meat Company, where they may meet their fate at the sausage machine.

Hobart’s family despairs. But not Hobart, for he is a pig with hope. And a pig with hope can accomplish wonders, as listeners will happily discover in this delightfully funny tale about life on the farm and the power of a dream. The musical finale will have listeners of all ages tapping their shoes in delight.
