Big Bad

by Alec Strum

 

 

 

Big Bad is the Village Playhouse's 2011 traveling children's production. This show travels to various locations in the metropolitan area.  All the shows listed below are open to the public with tickets available at the door.  (At the Lakefront Festival of the Arts the performance is free with admission to the grounds)

 

The most notorious criminal in the fairy-tale world, Big Bad Wolf, is being slapped with a class-action lawsuit by the countless quirky characters he has wronged.  Now, the two greatest legal minds in the Enchanted Forest the Evil Stepmother and the Fairy Godmother will clash (on live Court TV, no less, with Sydney Grimm as commentator!)  in a trial that will be remembered forever after.  As Little Red Riding Hood, her Grandmother, the Three Little Pigs and the Shepherd in charge of the Boy Who Cried Wolf testify, the wolf seems deserving of all that's coming.  But, even though the disreputable Evil Stepmother couldn't be less interested in pro-bono work on such an obviously futile defense, Mr. Wolf makes a good case for himself.  Was he born a criminal, or made one?  Perhaps he does deserve compassion instead of condemnation?  What will the verdict be?  Only the jury the audience can decide, when the doddering old Judge invites them to determine the outcome of the trial...  and the play!
