2012 PAGE Award recipients, Dearborn Heights Civic Theatre presents a unique summer youth theatre production ... The BIG BAD MUSICAL, A Howling Courtroom Comedy. A courtroom has never been more lively and fun than in The Big Bad Musical!
This smart and wickedly funny musical is great for actors and audiences of any age. The jury — the audience — 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 in charge of the Boy Who Cried Wolf. With Sydney and Cindy Grimm as commentators 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?
This musical has it all — a good balance of stage time for each character, multiple endings to make every performance unique and Bill Francoeur’s toe-tapping tunes!
Directed by Cynthia Frabutt with Choreography by Laura Tyler, Musical Direction by Kurt Frank, Produced by Marc Walentowicz and Cynthia Frabutt and Set Design by Patrick Coon, this Summer youth musical is sure to entertain with three surprise endings.
