A courtroom has never been more lively and fun than in The Big Bad Musical!
Our wonderful cast presents this smart and wickedly funny musical which is great for audiences of any age. You must decide the outcome of the biggest trial ever in the fairy-tale world! The notorious Big Bad Wolf is being slapped with a class-action lawsuit by storybooks of quirky characters who want to get even: Little Red Riding Hood, her Grandmother, the Three Little Pigs and the Shepherd. With Sydney Grimm as the commentator on live court TV, the two greatest legal minds in the Enchanted Forest—the Evil Stepmother and the Fairy Godmother—clash in a trial that will be remembered forever after. As our wronged fairy tale characters testify, the wolf seems deserving of all that’s coming. Yet, even though the infamous Evil Stepmother resents doing 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? You watch, you listen to Bill Francoeur’s toe-tapping tunes, and you decide.
Approximately one hour.
Produced by special arrangement with Pioneer Drama Service, Inc., Englewood, Colorado

About Dula the Musical: From Engela Edwards:
Dula is the sincere story of a small southern town immediately after the civil war, and although historically placed in time, there is a modern feel to the writing. It could easily be the story of a Texas boy coming home after a war. The truth, as it relates to the individuals in the story, doesn’t matter; because it is an honest story about war. It is this universality of time and space that drew me to the script.
