Big Bad Wolf

A clever, warmhearted parable that...lights up the imaginations of its target audience. It’s an ideal introduction to theatre.
Big Bad Wolf Sat 4/16/2016 1:00 & 3:30 PM
Theatre at Raritan Valley Community College

He's the most misunderstood character in fairytale history. Put simply, he has no friends — just incredibly sharp teeth, yellow eyes and his own ideas about personal hygiene. He is the infamous Big Bad Wolf after all. Luckily Heidi Hood, the second cousin twice removed of Little Red, is brave enough to see past this wolf's bad press and an unlikely friendship is born. This hilarious, table-turning tale complete with puppetry, a poetry competition, and plenty of dancing will have you wondering why you were so scared in the first place.
